Blue Grotto


DESIGN: A photochrom print from circa 1900 depicting “The Blue Grotto” in Capri Island , Italy, one of several sea caves, worldwide, that is flooded with a brilliant blue or emerald light. Photochrom prints are made by colorising images produced from black-and-white photographic negatives via the direct photographic transfer of a negative onto lithographic printing plates. In this particular image, the process has been carried out to such a degree as to give the couple in the boat a distinct, and almost ghostly, painterly effect.

SIZE: 16×12″

PAPER: Available on a variety of different papers from normal poster paper, through to heavyweight archival and premium canvas – prices starting from around $16/€14/£12.
