Chrysler Building at Night

500.00

The Chrysler Building in NYC.

Such an iconic building with so much heritage which is confused with the empire state building by most tourists. It was the world's tallest building when it was completed on May 27th 1930 for 11 months (surpassed by the Empire State building in 1931). The ground breaking occured on Sept. 19th 1928 and was built at an average four floors per week. No workers died during the construction even though it was built so quickly.

Hand made archival platinum palladium print.

Limited edition of 100, signed and numbered in pencil reverso. Full paper size is 10x12in, image size approximately 5.4in x 6.3in (13.8cm X 16cm).

This printing method requires the sensitising of the paper by hand so the border will vary for each print.

Including shipping and handling.

This is a Platinum and Palladium Print created on Bergger Cot 320 paper. Platinum prints are known for their great tonal ranges and archival permanence. This process also yields a completely matte appearance since the metals are absorbed into the paper. When created they can have the opportunity to last for over a thousand years, provided the paper keeping the image stays together. Platinum printing was invented back in 1873 and the prints created from that time period still look as when they were first made. Each print is a completely unique object that can never be reproduced exactly, due to the myriad of variables from chemistry, humidity and hand coating of the paper. Collectors are attracted to Platinum Prints because of their great range of tonality, its surface quality and long term permanence.
