Available formats are:

MAIN EDITION

  • Mounted
  • Mounted and Framed

Printed on 300gsm fine art paper, each print is individually signed and numbered by Anthony and supplied with a certificate of authenticity.  

Double mounted with an off-white mount and supplied acetate wrapped.  

The framed print is mounted as described and then framed in a 4.3cm wide distressed pewter moulding. Supplied strung and ready to hang. We offer the framed print glazed with Artscreen or a high quality reduced reflection glass called ARTglass. 


WHAT IS ARTSCREEN?

To overcome safety and weight issues with our larger limited editions we fit them with a speciality glazing product called Artscreen. It is a 2mm picture framing acrylic alternative to glass, which also offers excellent image clarity.

 

WHAT IS ARTGLASS?

Standard picture framing glass is called float glass. This glass is used by the majority of picture framers and is perfectly acceptable for use when framing most limited edition prints but it does cause reflection and impurities in the glass cause the framed image to appear duller than intended.


To overcome these compromises we offer all our limited editions with the option of been fitted with a speciality glass called ARTglass designed to reduce reflection and improve clarity.
Unlike 'non-reflective' glass which is etched to reduce reflection but has a cloudy appearance as a result, ARTglass is coated with a high-tech film, reducing reflection whilst adding clarity.
The example shown here is an actual scan of a print framed with ARTglass in the left half of the frame and standard glass in the right half. This image has not been altered or enhanced in any way and clearly shows how ARTglass improves the clarity and vibrancy of the print. From certain viewing angles it appears that the glass is invisible.


 

ARTIST'S PROOF

  • Stretched Canvas
  • Framed Canvas

Limited to just 25 prints, the Artist's Proof is a stunning large scale stretched canvas print.

Printed on 400gsm fine art canvas, each print is individually signed 'AP' and numbered by Anthony and supplied with a certificate of authenticity. The print is fitted to a 3.4cm deep stretcher and strung and ready to hang.

The Artist's Proof is also available in a 10cm wide distressed pewter frame.

WHAT IS AN ARTIST'S PROOF?

Traditionally an artist's proof was a print made by the artist during the print-making process in order to understand the progress of the printing plate the artist was working on. In this respect it was a 'work in progress' print.

With the development of modern printing techniques the term is now used to refer to a number of finished prints that are available in addition to the main limited edition, and are reproduced to the same exact high quality. The number of artist proofs should not exceed 10% of the size of the main limited edition. The edition size of 'Out in Front' is 250 prints so there are just 25 artist proofs available. The artist proofs may be exactly the same as the main limited edition or, as is the case with Anthony, the artist proofs may be a different format.

BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1971 Anthony Dobson’s interest in motorsport meant evenings spent drawing fast cars rather than doing homework, a rebellion that paid off when his first painting sold in 1989. Anthony turned down a place at university to study Graphic Design in order to work on the  commissions which followed from private individuals, car manufacturers and racing personalities. Since then, Anthony has worked on the business side of the art world as framer, printer and publisher. Working commercially with artists and building up portfolios for clients cannot have failed to add to his keen eye for colour, line and form.

With a flair for the commercial, technological and creative side of art motorsport remained an obsession for many years, but he has recently taken a dramatic departure from his usual subject and created a stunning and characterful collection of wildlife themed limited edition prints on canvas. Working primarily in oils, Anthony’s signature ‘detailed, yet not overworked' style is retained in this collection, displaying his familiar keen eye for colour, line and form.
