San Francisco Romano - Rome

Artist: Cass Gilbert
Date:1859-1934

Cass Gilbert was  a prominent American architect as well as a gifted artist. He believed that architecture should reflect history and traditions.  He was also an early adopter of the 'skyscraper' and his designs include the famous gothic landmark "Woolworth Building", which was the tallest building in the world until 1930. He designed the United States Supreme court along with Capitol Buildings and Art Museums across many other states.  He was born in Ohio and studied architecture for a year before setting off around Europe on a Grand Tour in 1880. Many of Gilbert's imaginative designs recalled and reinterpreted details of European buildings seen on his Grand Tour and typified the popular styles of the era. He was the president of the American Institute of Architects (1908-9) and the National Academy of Design (1926-33) and was a member of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts from its founding in 1910 until 1916. He died on a trip to England in 1934.

Each piece of artwork in the Musée gallery has been resized to work perfectly with International 'A' paper sizes.

All you need to think about when framing your Musée artwork is that it needs tobe in the appropriate A sized frame.

This means that no part of your artworkwill be lost to cropping when choosing frame sizes. It also means thateverything will work proportionately in gallery walls, and print sets.

Quality

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
