A limited-edition, archival-quality fine art print of a 1970 Jim Flora tempera painting entitled Chance Encounter. Uncirculated and unpublished during the artist’s lifetime, it was reproduced in Flora’s book The Sweetly Diabolic Art of Jim Flora. Only twenty (20) prints of Chance Encounter were produced for this edition. The edition is now sold out, but we’re offering one of the very few printing proofs that were aproved.
Produced by Flora archivist Barbara Economon, the prints have been meticulously replicated from the original painting using state-of-the-art digital technology. To produce this edition, a high-resolution scan was made of the original art, a tempera on paper. All aspects of the original artwork (with Flora’s signature in the lower right) were retained, including minor aging artifacts which in no way detract from the overall impression.
The image area is 10″ high x 12-3/4″ wide — slightly larger than the original work — on a sheet 13″ high x 19″ wide. 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 on an Epson 3800Pro large format printer using Epson UltraChrome K3 Pigment Ink Technology, resulting in brilliant, velvety color and offering excellent longevity and durability. Due to the fine art print’s higher-resolution process, as well as superior paper, inks, and quality control, the colors in the print appear brighter, crisper, and more vibrant than the online image. Online color appearance may vary slightly depending on your monitor settings.
