MARION'S VIEW

Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia 

The view from the top of Mount Ainslie is always great, but especially when you get a nice sunrise that lights up the Brindabellas in the distance.

The lookout that offers this view is named after Marion Mahony Griffin, the wife of Walter Burley Griffin, whose design was selected as the winning entry for Australia's new capital. Marion Griffin created illustrations as if she was at this location to illustrate Walter Burley Griffin's "City like no other" in their contribution to the competition for the Australian Capital City design. 

On the plan Griffin wrote “I have planned a city that is not like any other in the world. I have planned it not in a way that I expected any government authorities in the world would accept. I have planned an ideal city – a city that meets my ideal of the city of the future.” Looking across Canberra from Mount Ainslie you can see how his vision was brought to life and reflects Marion's drawings of this view before it was built.

Australian Wall Art - Unframed Print

UNFRAMED PRINT

Museum quality, fine art paper and inks.

As a print only, this requires framing, allowing you to select your own mounting and framing options. The print has an additional 6cm white border around the photo, allowing sufficient room to accommodate various framing choices.

Unframed prints come rolled in a protective tube, making them our recommendation for international customers.

We use fine art cotton paper from either Hahnemühle or Canson. This exceptionally high quality fine art paper is acid free and printed using genuine pigment inks - favoured by galleries and collectors because of their print longevity.

FRAMED PRINT

A clean, simple and modern look, suitable for any home.

Small Frame:The small frame (2cm wide x 2cm deep) is limited to our smallest sizes of framed prints. Your fine art paper print is mounted with a matt border, framed and completed with acrylic that protects against 70% of UV. The listed size is for the total finished framed dimensions of this artwork

Shadow Box Frame:Your fine art paper print is mounted and framed in a contemporary shadow box frame (27mm wide x 48mm deep) that is available in white or raw wood.

It is completed with museum grade acrylic (rather than glass) as it is light weight, transports well (doesn't break) and protects against 99% of UV.

Framed prints come ready to hang. The listed size is for the image itself - the border and frame add approximately 10cm to each side of the print (ie 20cm additional length in total).

The print is backed with treated aluminium, protecting your print from front to back. It is then finished with a diamond edge polisher.

Ready to hang on your wall, with a thin aluminium frame hidden behind the print.
