This piece of coastal wall art, originally published in Edward Donovan’s “Naturalist Repository” in 1822, consists of two nautilus seashells on an aged white background. This piece of luxurious wall decor was originally drawn as a scientific depiction of these shells, but our artists were inspired by the shell’s unique and intricate spiral patterns and enhanced the original image by intensifying the hues of blue and gold that make these shells so beautiful. The aged white background brings a sense of age to the piece and serves as a reminder of the drawing’s scientific origins. These shells are the perfect addition to any bedroom or bathroom and are sure to be enjoyed by enthusiasts of fine art and underwater life alike.
At Vintage Print Gallery, we do our best to offer the most interesting, sophisticated and unique pieces of art to our loyal customers. While many of our offerings come from painstakingly collected antiques, such as hundreds of years old atlases, photo albums and herbariums, we have also gone a step further and now offer remastered pieces, as well as original art. Our original art takes inspiration from our existing catalog and builds on it. Our remastered pieces bring new colorways, sharper images and more intricate details from restored vintage works of art. Additionally, we also offer silver, gold and copper leaf enhanced art, with real metal applied to the prints.
