Unknown Artist : “Burnham’s Hotel” (c. 1845)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Burnham’s Hotel was built in the early nineteenth century near New York City. Hotels like this were popular with wealthy families, who enjoyed the open space a short distance away from the city. A book from the 1890s describes life in one of these luxurious hotels: “On each fine summer afternoon the spacious grounds were filled with ladies and children, who sauntered at their leisure, having no fear of annoyance and confident of perfect immunity from affront.” The artist probably made a living by selling portraits of popular resorts to visitors who wanted a keepsake of their trip.
