Niagara Falls by Frederic Edwin Church mounted art print
25 x 20 cm, (printed image size 18 x 13 cm) mounted art print of Niagara Falls by Frederic Edwin Church from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection. Ready to add to a frame without having to mount this yourself.
Church's large canvas captures magnificently the drama of Niagara Falls, one of his country's most famous landmarks. This painting, based on a drawing Church made at Niagara in July 1856 and on a sepia photograph touched with colour, was commissioned by the New York art dealer Michael Knoedler in 1866.
