About - Fine Art Print Shell Fish

This print is a professional reproduction of the original painting Shell Fish from the Sea Treasure gallery wall original collection (originals yet to be released).

On my first visit to the new museum, I bought the book Rare Treasures from the library of the Natural History Museum. The book came with a series of reproduction natural history prints, including the print which I have used as the background for this work - Louis Renard's (1678-1746) depiction of white-barred triggerfish, clown triggerfish and a crayfish. I chose to depict one of my own shell collections in an unnatural blue hue to complement the vintage print.
