This piece of coastal wall art, originally published in Edward Donovan’s “Naturalist Repository” in 1822, consists of a large whelk shell on an aged white background. This piece of luxurious wall decor was originally drawn as a scientific depiction of this shell, but our artists were inspired by the shell’s unique and intricate patterns and enhanced the original image by intensifying the shell’s maroon and blue color scheme. The aged white background brings a sense of age to the piece and serves as a reminder of the drawing’s scientific origins. This shell is the perfect addition to any bedroom or bathroom and is 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.
