The Washington Monument Artist Proof is an original work by Robert Decker.
The Washington Monument Artist Proof is a limited edition, and only the first 25 prints pulled from each press run. I personally inspect these proofs on press and sign off on them before the balance of the posters are printed. The Artist Proofs feature the pressman’s “color bars”, which he uses to ensure that prints stay registered and colors stay consistent throughout the press run. Artist Proofs are numbered 1-25, dated and signed. My signature attests that I have personally inspected and approved each print — and further verified that no unsigned or unnumbered copies within the limited edition are known to exist.
FedEx 2-Day Air Shipping in a Flat Mailer is highly recommended!
About the Washington Monument
Designed by Robert Mills and completed by Thomas Casey in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Washington Monument was completed in two phases. From 1848-1854, a private Washington National Monument Society chose Mills’ design and began raising money for its construction, beginning with its cornerstone, a 24,500-pound block of pure white marble.

About the Artist
Photographer and graphic artist Rob Decker studied photography with Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park during the summer of 1979. The experience solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all our major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
"I’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits, so when you buy one of these original works, you're helping these trusts, conservancies and associations, too. I feel that it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards."
