William Michael Harnett was a master of the trompe-l'oeil ("deceive the eye") still life, in which shadow effects, foreshortening and other techniques of perspective are used to lend realistic objects the illusion of three dimensionality. The varied textures in his works are so finely rendered that the actual brushwork is almost invisible to the eye. His text and musical notation are fully legible and perfectly aligned, even across curved and crumpled surfaces.
Curator Doreen Bolger Burke describes "Still Life—Violin and Music" as "one of the best of Harnett's musical subjects," noting the "great care...taken with such details as the rosin dust beneath the strings, the plain box with an inlaid frog, and an ivory and granadilla wood piccolo." She further speculates that the inverted horseshoe and melancholy ballad may signify bad luck, hinting at something of a deeper story implicit within the composition.
Vintage art is not standardized. The original works are usually too long, or too short, to neatly fill a store-bought frame. Most shops arbitrarily crop the artwork to match, leading to claustrophobic prints with missing or partial elements. These modifications — sometimes trivial, sometimes ludicrous — are not always shown in the product photos.
We believe that the purpose of art is not to fill a frame; it is the purpose of a frame to showcase the art.
Our prints have inset borders that make up any differences in proportion between the artwork and a standard frame, so that you can experience the art as the artist intended. They look sharp in beveled mats, may be float mounted, or inserted directly into standard frames; the borders providing a mat-like accent around the image. There are many styles from which to choose.
Framing is a fun, creative process that enhances the artwork and livens your space for years to come. Should you like any advice, feel free to reach out.
We are happy to customize our prints to fit your frame. Borderless prints may require the artwork to be cropped to fit a new aspect ratio. In such cases, we will provide a mockup to ensure that the final product meets with your approval.
If you’re looking for an artwork that is not in our catalog, feel free to ask if we can provide it. We will print any public domain or openly licensed image that is available in high resolution.
Giclée process prints are the gold standard in fine art reproduction. We use a matte finish, cotton fiber paper to maximize detail while eliminating glare. Our prints display a wide color gamut, deep blacks and beautiful tonal transitions. Produced using only archival materials, they will not fade or yellow, but maintain their original quality for as long as you own them.
To assure artistic quality, all of our production and design is strictly in-house. Every print has been proofed, calibrated and inspected for defects. We do not drop ship, resell or make use of third-party production partners.
All orders ship within one business day via USPS First Class, Priority Mail or Priority Mail Express. Sizes 9” x 12” and 12” x 16” ship in a flat configuration, unless combined with larger prints, which require tubes. We will replace any lost or damaged items at no expense to you.
We will promptly address any issues that may arise with your order. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.
