This ready to hang, gallery-wrapped art piece features an elephant. American impressionist Richard Wallich has spent more than 30 years honing his painting talents. He studied painting and figure drawing at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Illinois, where he first worked in realism, but found the style too time-consuming. He soon discovered that impressionism allowed him to work much faster and more spontaneously, so that he could really immerse himself in the painting. Among other high honors, Richard was commissioned by the NFL in 1989 to paint for the Super Bowl and in 1996 he was the official artist for the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. He has since been commissioned by several large companies such as Coca Cola, M & M Mars and American Airlines. Giclee (jee-clay) is an advanced printmaking process for creating high quality fine art reproductions. The attainable excellence that Giclee printmaking affords makes the reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original piece. The result is wide acceptance of Giclee by galleries, museums and private collectors. Gallery wrap is a method of stretching an artist’s canvas so that the canvas wraps around the sides and is secured a hidden, wooden frame. This method of stretching and preparing a canvas allows for a frameless presentation of the finished painting.
