painting that we have today. Developed in the late 1980's
this technology utilizes high end ink jet printers and
museum quality paper and inks. Giclees are sized 18x24",
24x36", 40x60".  Each Giclée is signed and numbered and
comes with an historical statement and certificate of
authentication.  Giclées are packaged on foam core or in a hard tube.

These affordable maps are miniature versions of the
masterpiece. They are perfect for travel, mailing and gift
giving. They are signed through 25 and include a
historical statement .

What people are saying about Great River Arts

I was wanting some unique artwork for my walls and wasn’t impressed with the generic options at the store. I love old maps, so was searching around on Etsy for something relating to the region I live in (NW Wisconsin) when I discovered yours. I work in digital property mapping now, but sometimes wish there was still a demand for real cartographers and hand drawn maps with real artistic quality. Old maps are fascinating to me, to see how a landscape was interpreted back then without ever being able to have a birds eye view. You really bring your maps to life! And I love the bit of history you have on most!

Bought one for the office then my wife bought this one for the home.

I highly recommend working w/ Ms. Middleton. The map I received is beautiful and the perfect complement of historic interest w/ earth tone colors. It was carefully packed in a thick tube so it wouldn’t get damaged. I couldn’t be happier as it’s going to be the perfect Christmas gift.
