During the 1970s, John K. Thompson Jr. created several different montages for some American cities. They were etched by the artist on a slab of cultured or composition marble. THIS IS CULTURED MARBLE. There are Class A and Class B editions. Class A is limited and personally signed by the artist. Class B is unlimited and unsigned. The resulting images, like this one, are incredible. He manages to fill his marble canvas with so many of the landmarks and buildings for which the city is known.
The etched cultured marble picture is mounted on a burgundy velvet background and framed in wood with a gold metallic rim around the outside edge.
