All unframed giclees on paper and on canvas come rolled in a tube unless already framed or stretched, and all unframed cels and drawings are sent in flats.  This item is either stretched, framed, or oversized.

In the US, we charge a flat rate for framed and oversized art, but if the shipping is higher to your location, we will let you know the extra costs, which are just extended without markup from the shipping company used.  We want people all over the world to have access to art we have on our site, so we try to do all we can to make it accessible!  Our surcharges will never exceed the shipping company charges.  Hopefully this is clear, but please all us with any questions or concerns.

We ship anything unframed over $250 free in the continental US. Some of the art is available both framed and unframed, so do let us know if you're wanting a version not offered on our new site.  Also note, we don't recommend buying giclees on canvas framed.  Dependent on weather changes, they art can loosen in the stretcher bars during shipment.  We send all art with tracking and signature required, unless otherwise requested. International clients can expect additional duty and import costs consistent with those charged by their country.

Product Description

This is an original mixed media piece of art that is signed by the artist John Alvin, whose artwork is skyrocketing in popularity and interest due to the recent auction results for his E.T. key art, which went for nearly 400k, and the release of The Art of John Alvin book. Order your copy of the book here. Now is the perfect time to begin or expand your collection of John Alvin's work before everyone else takes the art you want! John Alvin, who became a close friend of ours, is one of the most prolific and well known of all the cinema artists in history. We are honored to represent the original art of John Alvin, and hope his true fans, new fans, or those who know his very important place in film history will be the ones who will get these incredible originals.

Bittersweet Embrace was created in production during the production of Beauty and the Beast as a possible design for the poster and for an officially licensed limited edition, which sold out almost immediately, and is one of the most sought-after pieces of art based on the film.

The Alvins coined the term "Alvin-izing" to describe John's work, and Bittersweet Embrace is very much in that style. It's hard to put into words, but it is almost like the art is enchanted.

If you are a fan and want to learn more about his work or are just discovering the genius behind some of your favorite cinema art, we invite you to visit our website dedicated to John's work and legacy here.
