JimFlora.com is offering a limited-edition, archival-quality fine art print of an uncirculated tempera entitled Uruapan. The undated work, likely rendered by Flora in the late 1960s, depicts Uruapan, the second largest city in the Mexican state of Michoacán. The volcano, Parícutin, near the city, first erupted in 1943, but has been dormant since 1952.
Uruapan has not previously been reproduced anywhere. Produced by Flora archivist Barbara Economon, the prints have been meticulously replicated from a high-resolution scan of the painting using state-of-the-art digital technology. All aspects of the original work have been retained, although aging artifacts and wear have been removed.
Only twenty (20) prints of Uruapan were produced for this edition. Each print is hand-numbered in the lower right corner beneath the image, hand-titled in the lower left, and authenticated on the reverse with the stamped seal of Jim Flora Art (a Flora family enterprise). We have sold numbers 16/20 thru 20/20, and are now offering print number 15/20 for $170 (plus s/h). Prices will increase for subsequent prints as the edition depletes.
The image area is approximately 15″ high x 16-1/2″ wide on a 17″ x 22″ untrimmed sheet. The unframed prints are on heavyweight (310g) mould-made William Turner stock, a natural white, 100% rag paper with a fine toothy surface manufactured by Hahnemühle, who are renowned for premium-grade archival papers. The edition was produced using Epson UltraChrome K3 Pigment Ink Technology, offering crisp resolution and assuring excellent longevity and durability.
The print will ship flat, securely packaged and guaranteed against bending or dents. Print includes a detailed, custom-printed one-sheet with instructions for the proper care of this fine art reproduction.
