ANC Online Auction: Set of Four Photo Canvases by Matt Grigsby

Four mini photo canvases by Matthew Grigsby.

Each canvas measures four inches by four inches, which makes them the perfect size to hang on any wall no matter how little space there is. All four canvases are square and can also stand alone on a shelf or bookcase. They can also be carried in a purse or pocket, if you feel it’s important to have art on you at all times.

The photos are four pictures taken by Matt of Florence, Italy, his favorite city in the world. They are photos of the Duomo Cathedral, the Ponte Vecchio over the Arno River, the Bell Tower (as seen from the top of the Duomo) and the skyline of Florence (also from the top of the Duomo). The canvases are Matt’s own handmade creation, and each one is unique and crafted with care and affection. Affection for the subject matter obviously, not for affection of the actual canvas. He merely likes the canvas.

Each piece is numbered and signed by the artist, created in 2019.


These are being sold as a group of four, not individually.

Starting bid is $30.00.

Auction bidding will begin Mon. Jan. 6, and will conclude Thur. Jan. 9.
