Pictures: for your convenience we offer several pictures for each piece at different angles and maybe settings or staged locations to help you assess size and look in a house setting. We spent countless hours to capture and represent faithfully the colors and sharpness of the original paintings and prints, but often it is difficult to capture the real beauty. For this we have intentionally sacrificed a level of performance and speed of navigation to offer you higher quality pictures that require larger file sizes. All pictures have been watermarked for protection. You can use the magnifying glass symbol to expand the picture to full screen size for higher detail.

Framing: it is indeed magical how a well selected framing and matting job uplifts even further them most humble of a graphic art. It is simply delightful. DaVic will provide framing services at extra cost. However, it is recommended that framing be done by our customers with their local framing service providers. The reason is that framing for prints will require glass and this glass will add risk during shipment in the case it breaks. A better and recommended alternative is that we use acrylic glass for your framing request that is very resistant to impact reducing the risk during shipment. If you would like us to frame your selection, we will be happy to do so. Our shipments will be insured.
