Rescuing Piglet (Deluxe)Hand-Embellished Giclee on PaperChiarograph on paper
NOTES: Rescuing Piglet (Deluxe) Hand-Embellished and Hand-Remarqued by Harrison Ellenshaw Limited Edition Chiarograph on Black Paper. The genius and mastery of Ellenshaw artwork is put on display in these stunning visions of Disney regal grandeur. Embracing the romantic architecture of Disneyï¿½s timeless royal tales, Collectors Editions is pleased to present this fine art series which lovingly showcases the combined artistic talents of the legendary Peter and Harrison Ellenshaw. Each piece in these black paper limited editions is carefully hand created using our proprietary technique called Chiarography.ï¿½ The Chiarograph is a fusion of traditional printmaking and the latest digital technology. The characteristic of the Chiarograph medium is unique: while each one has a pattern or part of an image that is repeated, the individual hand painting preparation results in a one of a kind print. Thus, no two prints are identical. The beauty of this media is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking and painting.
Each piece in these black paper limited editions is carefully hand created using a proprietary technique called Chiarography (pronounced keer-ography) which requires an intensive amount of hand preparation and attention. First, each sheet of 485 gram, archival, acid-free black paper undergoes multiple hand brushed basecoats of various medias, which will become the printed area. This hand application of basecoats create the brush stroke texture behind the printed image and ensures each piece in the edition is unique, as no two pieces will ever have the same hand painted undercoat.
Using archival, pigmented inks, the chiarograph printing process identifies the undercoat and prints only on the hand painted area thereby applying the artwork over the texture, and out to the edges of the brushwork. This creates a uniquely organic and whimsical effect to the outer border of each image. Each work of art is then hand-embellished by Harrison Ellenshaw before undergoing three separate coats of hand applied varnish which not only provides UV protection to the image, but results in a luminous sheen to the finish. Finally, Harrison Ellenshaw creates a hand drawn illustration of a film icon specifically for each collection.
Under supervision of Harrison Ellenshaw, these elegant collaborations are signed with Peter Ellenshawï¿½s official estate signature and personally hand signed by Harrison Ellenshaw, before they are individually hand numbered and approved for sale to the public.

He has also had a successful career as an artist with one-man shows of his paintings in London, New York, and San Francisco.
Peter Ellenshaw has received five Academy Award® nominations, winning the Oscar® for his stunning recreation of Edwardian London in the Walt Disney's classic, Mary Poppins. Throughout the years, Ellenshaw has sought to capture the drama and emotions of many different scenes. His work is represented in both public and private collections worldwide.

In their first creative collaboration since Disney's, "The Black Hole" (1979), Peter & Harrison Ellenshaw came together to create "We can Fly". Their first in a series of collaborative works celebrated the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney's, "Peter Pan".
Their second piece was "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," which according to Harrison, "was my introduction to Hollywood, at least to the Disney style of epic movie making. This was an exciting time, seeing my father involved in one of Walt Disney's most successful live action films."
