Noice. I'd say PM peacedog or jbframing since they're the only professional framers here (if they're even still active). Most likely you're best off taking it to a professional framer ya trust or a conservator if ya have one.

Nice print! Thanks for pic. Where did they come from?

What Blue said above. I think I saw peacedog posting not all that long ago (could be wrong though).

If it was only ever released this way and assuming the framing isn't fug, why not just leave it be?

It was floated directly against glass which isn’t great in the long term and the frame style isn’t what I’d choose for it.

That’s what I think I’ll do. Many places closed or limited availability right now, so I might have to be patient.

If it is attached with any type of adhesive tape , you can use an iron or the lowest setting to soften it
and carefully remove. Just use clean white paper so as not to damage the print. Work slowly It may remove easily
Sending it to PM is a good idea too.

Follow-up -- I got it back from PM today. They made very quick work of it, and I'd consider it a success. Inevitably there are a few marks where the adhesive was, but it's pretty minimal, everything's in tact, and overall it looks great.

In your parlance, it ran me a hundo.

Luls. Parlance is a very underutilized word.

It's a private commission 18x24 blue variant of Lotus Diamond from 2013, I think.

As best as I can tell, a luxury real estate company owned by an art collector had Shep make them, and they're given out as gifts to people that buy their expensive units. I bought this from somebody who was gifted it. I doubt we'll see many of these around unless they're given away through some other channel.

Submitted as "Blue Lotus Diamond 20 Fairey" - unless you think it should belong as a variant option to Lotus Diamond from 2013?
