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.

William Hamilton’s Campi Phlegraei, or “The Flaming Fields,” documented the late eighteenth century eruptions of Mount Vesuvius, arguing that, over geological timescales, volcanoes have been a creative force that have contributed to the picturesque landscape and fertile soils of southern Italy. To illustrate the work, Hamilton employed Anglo-Neapolitan artist Pietro Fabris, who created sketches in situ. These were reproduced as etchings and hand-colored by local artists.
