Vintage Empire State Building - New York City Canvas Print
This New York City canvas print features a vintage Empire state Building on a rainy night. It's based on an old black and white photo of New York City at night taken circa 1937. When I saw this night time view, I was inspired to create this rainy night view of the city lights of New York City on a night long ago. With a view of that landmark building, it feels identifiably NYC but the Manhattan skyline has, of course, grown in the decades since. So it's a younger New York than the one we know now. It feels something like a time machine view, doesn't it? It's hard to imagine but the Empire State Building in this artwork is basically new - construction of the skyscraper was completed in 1931.
What attracted you to this particular New York city canvas print? Do you love architecture? Vintage views from days gone by? Or is it down to the mood in this aerial view of the NYC skyline as the rain falls? I hope you'll share your thoughts.
The Empire State Building was added to the US National Register of Historic Places in 1986. It was the world's tallest building from its completion in 1931 until 1970. It's a beautiful building that is truly worthy of being called a landmark.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
