Expert Appraisal has described this offering of John Pitre's "Tomorrow" as a quality, off-set lithograph on canvas with a textured, raised varnish embellishment in a style no longer produced. Canvas Off Set Lithograph With Textured, Raised Varnish Embellishment.
Appraised by a registered member of the Antique Appraisal Association of America Inc. Morton Appraisals LLC Scottsdale, Arizona. A type of "paper" measuring less than 1 inch appears to have adhered to the canvas.
Expert appraisal inspected and stated the "paper" could be removed with a professional cleaning. The "paper" area is however not highly noticeable due to the textured, embellishment style of the artwork. This flaw can be seen up close in two of the photos. The canvas is otherwise in excellent, original condition with a frame that also appears to be original to the artwork. This canvas version of John Pitre's Tomorrow is the only non-poster version I was able to find through searching the web.
