Rare Maps and Charts Limited edition prints from Alaska's most famous artist Rie Munoz Darvill's Rare Prints homepage Sorry, we do not perform appraisals and we do not buy from unsolicited sources.

Nowhere is the delicate balance of technique and artistry more evident than in the intricate work of Peter and Traudl Markgraf. Working together in the basement of their Sunshine Coast (British Columbia) home they coaxed layers of light and shadow out of nylon screens and onto paper.

The process they used is called screen printing. It started with an original sketch as a reference point from which they created a drawing directly on the screen. A large piece of nylon was stretched over a wooden frame and paper placed underneath. The screen was positioned on top and the image was printed by forcing paint through the nylon with a rubber squeegee. This painstaking procedure took up to 15 screens per print.

In their over 30 years of print making the Markgrafs not only mastered print making techniques, they pioneered them. Essential to their success was their committment to working together. From beginning to end, there was no division of labor.

Their work has earned them an international reputation and an ever expanding audience who seek to share their vision.

Darvill's Rare Prints is pleased to offer a wide selection of hand-signed, limited edition Markgraf
Silk-Screens (Serigraphs) from several series featuring the San Juan Islands, British Columbia,
Canada and various Northwestern and Western U.S. & Canadian landscapes and seascapes.

Due to a large number of enquiries, please note:
We are not looking to purchase any Markgraf prints.
Please do not offer to sell us yours or ask us for an appraisal of your print.

If your print is about 5 x 7 inches, it is just an "art card" that sold for about $2 and has no real value other than being a pretty print. You can tell if it's a reproduction by looking at the print under a magnifying lens. If you see a dot pattern, it is a mass-produced card.
Thank you.
