About this Work of Art ~
"At the Pool"
was created in the Summer of 2008 by Laszlo Tar. It features a nostalgic and painterly
view of the Astoria Pool, located in Astoria Park, Queens New York City. The pool is teaming with people enjoying the hot summer day as the life guards sit watching. And in the rear, behind and rising above the lush green trees, is the historic Hell Gate Bridge as it spans New York's East River. Brings back great memories - Really fantastic.

original is a watercolor and gouache painting created
on Italian Fabriano Artistico paper.
Drawings by Michelangelo and Raphael executed on papers
from Fabriano still hang in museums and are a testament
to the quality of Fabriano paper. This very fine paper
has the watermark "Fabriano Artistico" along both edges and when
visible on the original painting, these watermarks are
also clearly evident on our print images. Paper watermarks
are used as date reference points by historians, collectors
and appraisers and because our prints are exact replicas
of the original work, the visible watermarks on the
original are also reproduced on the print. Mr. Tar
primarily used two types of paper for his original
watercolors. One is Fabriano Artistico (Italian) and
the other is Arches (French). Both manufacturers include watermarks on
