Looks like this print is gonna be available in two sizes 17.75"x17.75" and 23"x23" (OG is 24"x24"). I'm guessing, like "Two Sisters", there will be a time release edition in the smaller size and a small edition framed option in the larger size.
part of it is that the frame retails for $250-300 depending on your frame shop, not to mention the added value of receiving it ready to hang and not having to deal with that yourself (how big is your "to be framed" pile? ). the other part is that eBay prices are higher than this and there are people willing to pay them, charging this much on our end will hopefully deter some of the flippers since there won't be as much profit to be made.
It's a much better deal to get this framed directly from the source than buying Enrapture from the gallery and having to go through a frame shop to put it on the wall. Do the math. Chances are the bill will be more expensive and the result, less sexy. I swear by Audrey's framing choices. Of course you're free to prefer Enrapture as a piece, which I don't, but if you like Charlotte, this is a better bang for your buck. I hate gallery's markup.
where is the international shipping cost for the framed print, what type of glass is used, there should maybe be the option to sell the bigger print unframed to international collectors, what was the breakdown on the print / framing cost to come up with $520 as the retail price, to me it doesnt appear to differ greatly with enrapture
