About this Work of Art ~
A watercolor painting created in the Spring of 2008 by Laszlo Tar. He visited Washington
D.C. once in 1979 and again in 2008, touring the many
monuments and museums. He created this very painterly work of
the Peace Monument (also known as the Naval Monument or Civil War Sailors Monument) at North West entrance of the United States
Capitol complex. The monument (1878) is a white marble sculpt by Franklin Simmons (1839-1913) and commemorates the naval deaths at sea during the American Civil War. A truly 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
