Just getting something framed myself currently, seems clear-view glass is considerably more expensive than regular float glass currently. I’d guess that is something the framer took on board…
I had four prints framed over a period of six months , at the back of my mind, I seem to remember him saying he was having difficulty obtaining non-reflective glass.
He’s aged 80 plus, so maybe he couldn’t put a large order in .
Certainly the supply chain has become fractured in more than one industry
Looked up picture glass prices, clear view (other names for same glass) is currently 4times the cost of basic picture glass. Can get very expensive. That said if I had a water colour painting it’s 100% worth the cost as it can eliminate UV. The very best museum clear glass (even more expensive) takes out all UV.
Horses for courses I suppose…
Thanks - that’s a pretty steep rise - it explains it
Fortunately these are Giclee (that’s the only service I use for photos on the wall)
This is a limited edition Gordon Walters print. He was a NZ artist most famous for his abstract “Koru” series, of which this is an example. The word “ koru” is Māori for the tip of the growing fern.
Wow! Just checked out your website.
What a wonderful archive of pop history - and beautifully shot photographs. Fabulous.
When I first saw that picture, I thought it looked familiar.
Only just realised it is similar to the cover of a book book I have.
Printed in 1920, it contains photos of destruction in Paris caused by German bombers and artillery.
Nice of you to say so.
I was very lucky to see some marvellous musicians many of which I still listen to.
Sadly several are no longer with us which saddens me. I still have some great memories though !
Lucky find on Holiday in France last week. Bought directly from the photographer, Dudley Reed. His portrait of Mitsuko Uchida. Hard to photograph effectively, but hopefully it comes over ok. Now gracing a wall in my listening room. Cost a bit, but all proceeds are going to a charity for Ukraine, Help and Hope.
Mitsubishi Uchida. The motorised pianist.
That’s a truly modern/industrial predictive text! Certainly not what I started to type…
View to Lympne Castle by Brian Oxley
@Thegreatroberto assume you are familiar with the view.
Certainly am familiar with that view. Can almost pin point where the artist would have been to paint it too.
Latest one to be reframed. I imagine she’s pretty hard to get an autograph from, as she does a performance every 30 years, then disappears.
that does have a rarity value
Is any of that going to charity I wonder?
