Cornwall St Ives Smeatons Pier Art


Smeaton’s Pier in St Ives, Cornwall (built between 1767 and 1770) took its name from a certain John Smeaton who happened to be an English civil engineer responsible for the design of bridges, canals, harbours and lighthouses. This incredible print of the pier, complete with boats, is particularly noteworthy for the way James has captured the rather unusual aqua colouring of the sea, so typical of this idyllic corner of the world.


This signed print is one of a limited edition. It’s recorded on Hahnemühle stock via a large format mimeograph and generally referred to as Giclée prints of premium quality. The paper is white 100% a-cellulose with a distinct textured surface and the premium matt inkjet coating more than meets the highest industry standards vis-à-vis density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness, while preserving the extraordinary touch and feel of genuine art paper. The editions depicted on Iconic Reserve are not representative of scale and solely for the purpose of suggestive display.
