From an original painting by Mickey Harris. “Lady of Grace,” was artist Mickey Harris’ debut print, and salutes the most famous W. W. II airplane in the world, depicted on May, 1943 on her return to the States after successfully completing 25 missions. Carefully researched for accuracy, this is the only painting ever sanctioned by the Memphis Belle War Memorial Foundation. The Memphis Bell is arguably the most famous B-17 Flying Fortress. Mickey Harris captures the elegant lines of the B-17 in the limited edition print “Lady of Grace”. All Limited Edition prints are signed and numbered (S/N) by the artist. Limited Edition prints are restricted to a certain number. For example, if 500 prints are made from an original painting, once they’re gone, that’s it. There is no limit to the number of open edition prints of a particular painting. That’s why Limited Edition prints are more expensive – and more valuable to collectors – than “open” edition. Rare objects are more valuable.
An Artist’s Proof (AP), generally, is the first 10% of the Limited Edition prints that come off the press. If the Limited Edition is 400 s/n, there would be 40 APs. This status is noted on the print. Collectors prefer APs because their value increases even more than a Limited Edition as time goes by.
All Limited Edition artwork is subject to availability at time of order. Although seller strives to remain currrent as to inventory, seller reserves the right to cancel a sale if item is no longer available at time of purchase.
