This linocut is from my sketch inspired by a friend's photo taken from inside entry of the Ritz hotel at Place Vendôme. A vintage Porsche 356, with its iconic sleek design, is parked in front.
World-renowned for its luxury jewelry stores such as Chanel, Gucci and Van Cleef & Arpels, Place Vendôme was created in 1699 and is one of the five royal squares in Paris.
To make my art prints, my original sketch is transfered onto a block of lino which I cut out with special gouges. I hand pull my print on a press one at a time, making each one a unique and original piece of art. Slight differences in each print are inherent in the process.
The print is sold unmounted and unframed but is shown here in a standard 40 cm x 50 cm frame.
Ships from France in a heavy-duty cardboard art tube using a tracked postal service.
