     There is a park (Parco Mediceo di Pratolino) just outside of Florence, Italy, which is home to a huge stone and brick sculpture by Giambologna. The sculpture of a crouching old man created in 1579-1580 is titled Il Colosso dell'Appennino (“The Colossus in the Little Alps”) and he reigns over the landscape.

     I spent a lovely afternoon in this park, looking over the ruins and enjoying all the green. Even the drive there from Florence was beautiful. These trees line the road to the gigantic statue. The late afternoon light was striking and I had to record it. The colors were just starting to change and thus, there is a lovely play in them from green to yellows. I wrote about this on my blog - three entries in fact. They are here:

 

     This is a print of the original pastel drawing on black Roma-brand paper. The image area is as listed and the white border is around the image, making the print a wee bit larger.  Each fine art reproduction is printed on quality Italian paper. (The word "Print" will not appear on the image.)

Framing Tips:

     I recommend framing behind a non-glare glass, with a mat, and simple frame. The color of the mat and frame should go with the color of the print. Care for your print just as you would any work on paper: do not display in direct sun and protect from humidity. The framer should attach the print to the support ONLY on the TOP edge, allowing the paper to hang freely behind the mat. That freedom allows the paper to respond well to most levels of changing humidity.

 

Happy shopping! Thank you,
