RIVENDELL Limited Edition Lithograph by Alan Lee (Number 257 of 500 with small damage)

RIVENDELL Limited Edition Lithograph by Alan Lee (Number 257 of 500 with small damage)

Currently in stock

This very last copy was recently found as it had been pulled from stock due to a crease in the right hand border even though it does not impinge on the image. It is about of a third of the way down and would be mostly hidden under the mount when framed. You can just about see it in the photo here. Both the limited edition of 500 copies and the 10% of Artist Proofs of this fabulous painting have sold out long ago leaving only this last numbered one left..

This was one of Alan Lee's finest paintings for the illustrated JRR Tolkien 'Lord of the Rings' book. The original was hanging over his fireplace in his living room until it was sold at auction. Image size is 475 x 294mm. Overall board size is 628 x 417mm. Supplied unmounted due to it's size. Signed and numbered to 500 by Alan Lee. Printed on acid-free board on a hand-press using light-fast inks and proofed against the original painting. The technique in Alan Lee's watercolour work is unbelievable. He uses very few technical tricks to achieve the results. There are certain things you have to do - white is the white of the paper so Alan Lee had to paint where the white isn't to get that effect on the waterfall! This Alan Lee limited edition is pretty much the same size as the original painting. The original has a grey watercolour border which is shown in the fully illustrated Lord of the Rings book. It's a great way to bring out a picture that is being printed in a book but is a bit limiting on a large fine-art print so we left it off and the image is the size the original was with the border (confused?). The colours are identical to the original painting. Well, let's put it this way - I couldn't spot the difference and nor could Alan Lee so that's good enough for me. Published by Artists UK.

Conservation mounting is supplied as standard if we frame this print for you.
