This is an aircraft art print.
The brilliant positioning of the aircraft and ground in the Koike painting of a Halberstadt CL.IV give the viewer the uncanny sense of hovering in the sky above the plane, and can almost induce vertigo when staring at the work in its original size! The CL.IV, which boasted great maneuverability, was one of, if not the, first plane in the world to be designed specifically for the ground attack role. It was used effectively to attack infantry ahead of German advances beginning in 1918, and in other roles, too.
This print is reproduced on heavy art board just like the original, and sized identical to the original, measuring 400mm x 315mm (15.75 x 12.4 inches). It's offset printed, and the color reproduction has been approved by Koike himself. The art board measures 625mm x 453mm (24.6 x 17.83), giving you the freedom to have it framed as you would like. Each print is packed in a special sleeve inside a sturdy cardboard shipping box designed especially to prevent bending during international shipping (NOTE: These prints cannot be combined with other items for shipping, except for additional art prints; they will be shipped separately in their special packaging, even if ordered together with other items).
