"Under the microscope" is a 5 x 7 inch matte photographic reproduction of a painting I previously sold, featuring a variety of cells, amoebae, bacteria, and strange forms...hydras? Mitochondria? I leave it to your imagination. One area bounded by a black circle highlights the strange microfauna, and that area is painted in a lighter hue, as if under special scrutiny or illuminated by a brighter light. Inspired in part by these lines I was reading in a 19th century ghost story. Copyright information does NOT appear on original, of course!!

"A microscope was, on his eighth birthday, presented to him by an affluent uncle. The uncle showed him how to surprise the secrets of a drop of pond water, which - limpid to the eye, confessed under the microscope to a whole cosmogony of strenuous and undesirable careers."

- from E. Nesbit, "The Five Senses"

The image was taken directly from a digital image scan of the painting and reproduced on high quality matte photo paper using a traditional photographic process. It will last 100 years in typical home display, 200 years in dark storage, according to the manufacturer.

Print is on Kodak Supra Endura Professional Photographic Paper. Listing is for photo print only, no frame or mat are included.

There is a white border around the image, so most frames/mats will not overlap the actual image. If you would prefer a print where the image has no borders please convo me and I can prepare a borderless version for you.

I will ship in a firm, non-bendable mailer or between cardboard to ensure safety, via first class mail. Priority mail available if desired. I will sign and date on the back.
