The treasure of a friendship brings forth great memories. This design project for Frette from eighteen years ago was unearthed after a conversation with Rosanne Sachson, A.S.I.D. filled with joyful laughter.
“Sail Away” was the theme and a Nan Rae painting graced the wall above the bed in the window on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills ….. through a number of linen changes.
This Nan Rae note card is a special remembrance from the installation day!
Architectural Interior Designer Rosanne Sachson & Artist Nan Rae.

A Serigraph is a fine art silkscreen print. The silkscreen print making process was first used by fine artists in the 1930’s to create original art prints were given the name ‘serigraph’ by Carl Zigrosser, Curator of Prints at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Later, the process was found to be an excellent method for creating high-quality reproductions of paintings. Lately, the term serigraph has also applied to these reproductive silkscreen prints.
Here the Artist supervises the production of her Iris Serigraph which begins with the original image being separated by color. A thin sheet of Mylar is placed over the image. Everywhere color appears it is blocked out by hand to match the original artwork. The step is repeated for each color. The Mylar sheets are transformed to silk film to form a screen.
The screen is placed onto an inking frame; the appropriate color ink is hand applied to each sheet of quality paper registered to match the screen. The image must fall into place flawlessly.
The serigraph process enables the Unique Quality of an original artwork to exist in a multiple format, because it is a ‘hands on’ method of reproducing the original image.
Many artists of the 20th century have utilized the Serigraph process to reproduce their work, including Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and Chemiakin Erte. The process yields a fine artwork that increases in value along with the original artwork.
The art of Serigraphy is well established and owning one is a good art purchasing decision.
