Pensacola Lighthouse - Vintage Florida Map Canvas Print
Pensacola Lighthouse - Vintage Florida Map Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.
This vintage Florida map canvas print features the historic Pensacola lighthouse. Built in the 1850's this towering lighthouse is still a local landmark in Pensacola today. This original artwork combines a vintage map of the Florida coast that was published close in time to when the current light was built. The resulting collage has a real sense of history and place. And it will probably have a familiar feeling to many who call the Florida panhandle near Pensacola home.
This Florida canvas art also includes the Keeper's cottage at the Pensacola Lighthouse. Built as a duplex it originally housed the lighthouse keeper, assistant keeper, and their families. Today it is a museum.
I would love to hear what attracts you to this Pensacola canvas print? Are you from the area? Or do you simply love history? Although I have had family in Pensacola all my life, I'm probably more in the latter camp. I love history and adore lighthouses! So needless to say this artwork was genuinely enjoyable for me to work on.

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.
