    I was just at the Chicago Art Institute and I saw a painting I really liked. It was Gino Severini's Still Life (Centrifugal Expansion of Colors). I was wondering if anyone by cance knew where I could get a print of it. I have looked around on the internet and I can't find anything, but I'm not real sure how to go about it. So any help would be appreciated :) ! Heres what it looks like: http://www.olemiss.edu/courses/math268_summer/chicago/chicago2.htm It's one of the first ones. Thanks in advance.

    There should be art print galleries around.. Hard to say where exactly you could find it, perhaps you could call the Institute if they could tell where to find 'em, if they don't sell them themselves.

    My wife and I go to Park West Gallery in Southfield occasionally. It is cool. We like a few things there.

    One of these days.

    i'm a HUUGE Francis Bacon fan.

    i have some rare lithos, but no paintings OF COURSE!

    so, i google his name, find some galleries, and photo print them on 11 x 17 photo paper.

    toss in a frame, and BAM!!!!!!!!!!

    nice quality Francis Bacons on the wall.

    he especially liked working in the TRYPTICH format, so i can 11 x 17 each panel and have a HUUGE Francis Bacon piece hangin' out.

    hmm, this would be a fun one to try to reproduce in Adobe Illustrator.

    I do have some comics autographed by Berni Wrightson, plus a few autographed Frank Frazetta pictures.
