Set of 3 Hand-Printed Monotypes
These are THREE 22 x 18-inch cyanotypes which are each unique hand-printed monoprints. After they are matted and framed separately, they will span more than 54 inches across the wall. Closer to 72 inches or 6 feet (over 180 cm.)
If you were to mat and frame each print separately in a 30 x 24-inch frame, together on the wall with a gap between the frames, they would span 72-80 inches horizontally.
These are all double exposure cyanotypes. The different shades of blue are created by exposing some parts of the light-sensitive paper to sunlight longer than others. Cyanotypes are a kind of 19th-century cameraless photographic process dating back to the 1840s.
