“ Thanks a lot for your answer to my request, in such a short time and in such a detail! I’m pleasantly surprised with the fact that you presented me 3 different options! The 2 options … although very tempting (pricewise, extra prints etc) do not interest me, because of the condition of the prints. As a collector I wouldn’t like anything else but the best – the first option. To be absolutely honest with you, I expected the price to be high, but not so much … (It’s a) ‘Museum quality’ piece … Congratulations for the excellent pieces you offer !!! ”
