The inscription beneath the print reads:

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.

BIOGRAPHY

Tim was born in Northumberland in 1958, educated at Sedbergh school and Wimbledon school of Art, graduating in 1981 with an honours degree in Theatre Design.

Over the years he has been collected by a wide variety of clients from every walk of life and rumour has it that he even shares a wall space in a most select loo with a Constable watercolour! His commercial clients have varied widely from T.K.Maxx to Taylors Port.
Tim collaborated in the design of the Mont Tauch visitors’ centre near Perpignan by providing, amongst other things, a 15 metre cartoon time line.  Most recently he has been commissioned by the Yeatman Hotel in Vila Nova De Gaia, Portugal. He has illustrated for magazines including Wine and Spirit, The Bystander and Landscape, and has also contributed to over 200 illustrations for Calvert’s Guide to British People.

Tim has exhibited widely since 1987, took to painting on a full-time basis in 1990 and from that point on he hasn’t looked back.
