David Hart is a renowned Australian artist who has a passion for expressing his love for Australian history on canvas, for all to enjoy. This exquisite boxed-set is purely Australian and perfect for any collector or as a corporate gift. Each of the images were scanned and printed in Brisbane with a museum quality printing technique called giclée printing, which guarantees the artwork not to fade for 130 years. Each of the boxes are hand-made by a master craftsmen book-maker in Brisbane and they are finished in an exquisite black textured covering which has been debossed with a silver foil logo and title. Each image is surrounded by an acid free double matt and then separated by quality acid free tissue. David has signed and numbered each one and included in the box is an Authenticity (with a black seal), the Waltzing Matilda song and a biography on David, all printed, in Brisbane, on a quality linen paper.
Maxwell & Williams were the first to release this range of images and they printed them on placemats, coasters and mugs. They were sold world-wide and were so popular a 2nd run was printed and released. Unfortunately the placemats, coasters and mugs have now completely sold out. We are continually asked by clients for them to be released again but these were the only two limited runs, so therefore have now become collectors items.
In this series David brings the writings of Banjo Paterson to life, as he illustrates the story of Waltzing Matilda in six stunning scenes that are beautifully boxed and matted, museum-grade giclée-printed reproductions, in a limited edition of 150.
