Melrose Abbey. Melrose Abbey in the Scottish Borders was founded by Cistercian monks in 1136 at the request of King David I of Scotland. It was badly damaged by the English on three occasions, in 1322, 1385 and 1544 after which it was not fully repaired. It declined as a working monastery and the last monk died in 1590. In 1610 part of the abbey's church was converted into a parisj church for the town of Melrose. Buried in the church is a lead casket said to contain the embalmed heart of Robert the Bruce, who rebuilt the abbey after the English attack of 1322.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
