All prints are museum quality archival paper. Please select:
Massachusetts designated the American elm (Ulmus americana) as the official state tree in 1941, commemorating the fact that General George Washington took command of the Continental Army beneath an American elm on Cambridge Common in 1775. In recent years the American Elm has been severely afflicted by Elm Disease. Today new species of Elm have been bread that are resistant to this disease.
Print Collection has commissioned artist Julian Montague to create round one of our State of America series. These bright, bold, graphic images iconicize the quirky Official State Insignias from around the nation. Red States and Blue States may now be a thing of the past.
All prints are made with the finest quality Digital Giclée printing using 12 color archival inks. We have chosen a 300gsm Rag paper with no "Optical Brightners" to extend the life of your print.
Great care has been taken to reproduce this image for you. Color, exposure, and other digital adjustments have been made to this historic image while working to maintain a direct connection to the original, photographic print, fine lithograph or hand pulled silk screen.
