A beautiful print of a cluster of eels, made directly from the specimens by the artist Annie Sessler. Once the eels had been caught and prepared, Sessler took this ink print to capture the striking detail and lively spirit of the subjects on fabric. The resulting artwork is both elegant and full of natural, earthy beauty. This is a fine reproduction of the original print on fabric. It is set off handsomely in a simple wood frame.
Living at the end of Long Island, Annie Sessler and her husband, Jim Goldberg, get direct inspiration from the sea. Goldberg fishes, and one day the couple began making ink prints of the day’s catch. Sessler--who trained in design--was soon creating extraordinary, almost iridescent prints of just-caught fish. Each exquisitely detailed print captures the natural beauty of its subject.
