About this Work of Art ~
was created in the Spring of 2008 by Laszlo
Tar. This work features a beautiful view of
the small pond (Conservatory Water) in historic
Central Park, New York. This is also commonly
known as the Sailboat Pond. It's a wonderful
spring day with people sitting along the pond
and boats afloat. The fresh green grass and
colorful trees surround the lake with the 5th
Avenue skyline in the backdrop. Laszlo Tar
painted this beautiful spot many times throughout
his life, dating back to as early as 1962.
Created on location and sure to bring back
here to see all Sailboat Pond prints.
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
