monuments and museums. He brought is easel along and created this
wonderful piece in 2008. It is
a lovely view of the western entrance of the United States
Capitol complex with the Reflecting Pool in the fore and the Capitol building in the back drop - and what a great sky! A fantastic and unique work of art.

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
