Art Deal of the Week

My third pick is this intelligent New York photograph by American photographer Chris Davis.
NY Niche by Chris Davis
It is titled "New York Niche" and the photograph measures 28x19 inches and then it is matted in a white pH-balanced acid free white museum mat and framed in a black metal moulding under plexiglass to a framed size of 36x24 inches. Photo is signed by the photographer. The price (including frame): $200. That's an incredible deal for this large photo.

To buy it call 301/718-9651 or email the gallery.
