This is a limited-edition, archival-quality fine art print of a Flora painting entitled The Big Bank Robbery. Although the work is undated, Flora archivists Barbara Economon and Irwin Chusid have determined that the figures and colors reflect Flora’s mid-1960s technique. The previously uncirculated work was reproduced in the book The Curiously Sinister Art of Jim Flora.
Only thirty prints (plus a few proofs) of The Big Bank Robbery were produced for this edition. Each print is numbered in the lower right corner beneath the image, hand-titled in the lower left, and authenticated on the reverse with the stamped seal of Jim Flora Art LLC (a Flora family enterprise). The edition is now sold out.
The image area is 11″ high x 17″ wide and centered 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 those in the book. Online color appearance may vary slightly depending on your monitor settings.
