We discovered this very special piece while sourcing in France and had it beautifully floated in the frame over dark matting to showcase the worn edges of the poster which helps tell the story of this exceptional calligraphy art. We were immediately drawn to a large rolled up poster in a bin in a warehouse we visited in the French countryside and were delighted to find an original piece that looks to include a student of calligraphy's work with this fine art by painting examples of the entire alphabet in Gothic lettering. At the top is the name Van Wymeersch etched in pencil which we assume to be the student. An interesting note, if you look closely, the "Gothique" title at the top was never completed by the crossing of the "t" and was crossed with a red pencil. We wonder if this was some level of grading by the professor the calligrapher studied under...just imagine the stories that this piece could tell!
Framed in a thick champagne colored silver frame with black matting, we feel that the coloring of the silver also lends well to matching with gold details. This original art would making a stunning statement with its bold, large scale.
Measures 54 inches wide by 75 inches in height, with the frame depth at 3 inches on the edges. One of a kind original.
