A narrow strip of land with trees separates Long Island Sound from Eagle Pond. It's a man-made pond on Tod's Point, now known as Greenwich Point Park.
When Mr. Tod, a wealthy business man at the turn of the 20th century, developed the island for his lavish home, he included a large bronze eagle atop a 25-foot tall granite pedestal protruding from the middle of the pond. It was situated where he could view it from the enormous picture windows of his three story mansion built on the island's highest point. What is today a salt-water pond, was once a protected cove where Mr. Tod's wealthy visitors could moor their sloops and yachts safely for the weekend after sailing in from New York City.
This picture is a view across that pond now completely enclosed by land. Large drains regulate the flow of Sound water in and out with every change of the tide.
This b&w print is one of an edition of just 50 high quality nearly continuous tone Piezography® prints on 100% rag acid-free baryta (semi-glossy) paper. I will personally print it on my 8-color Epson 7880 equipped with seven black inks and and eighth channel of clear gloss optimizer to protect and enrich the printed surface.
The 20"w x 13"h image is finished with a simple black (or white) wooden frame and arctic white acid-free matte. It is glazed with a special non-glare clear acrylic sheet to minimize reflections. Acrylic is lightweight, shatterproof, and offers maximum protection to the artwork filtering out 98% of harmful UV found in daylight or fluorescent bulbs. This framed archival print arrives ready-to-hang with all necessary hardware.
Each print in this limited edition of 50 is printed to order, signed in permanent silver ink (lower right) and accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity. Because you are purchasing a printed-to-order artwork, unfortunately I cannot accept returns except for those covered by shipping carrier's insurance policy. Each shipment will be insured for the replacement cost if damaged in transit. Damage claims must be submitted in writing within 14 days of receipt.
Please allow 7 to 10 days for printing, framing and packaging your work for shipment. Free shipping by UPS ground, faster service available at UPS's expedited shipping rates.
