George Santayana History Quote Fine Art Print


- +


Remember your favorite history quote, originally written by George Santayana and rephrased by Winston Churchill: "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it" (Santayana) and "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it" (Churchill).

This is an archival print of my original calligraphy and artwork, hand-lettered and hand-painted in an Italian Renaissance style on genuine parchment. The classical Greek column, fallen and shattered on the ground, adds a poignant illustration to the wisdom of the words.


It is available in two sizes (5 x 7 inches or 8 x 10 inches). You may choose to have the print alone or have the print professionally matted in black for no extra charge. (The 5 x 7 in. print is matted to 8 x 10 inches, and the 8 x 10 in. print is matted to 11 x 14 inches.)


The art is professionally printed using an Epson Artisan 1430 with Claria inks on premium fine art paper, a combination which has a laboratory-tested lifespan of more than 100 years. Your art print is shipped with a protective plastic sleeve in a sturdy cardboard mailer to prevent any damage during shipping.
