Pioneering the one-man art show and the Pre-Raphaelite movement, Ford Madox Brown (1821 – 1893) was a precise craftsman and colorist. A designer for William Morris, Brown was otherwise a non-conformist who associated with the Pre-Raphaelites, but never joined the Brotherhood. Painting historic and religious themes, Brown’s best-known piece is “Work,” a commentary on Victorian social classes. Brown was commissioned to paint 12 murals in Manchester Hall, which took 15 years to finish, and was the crowning achievement of his career.
This giclée print offers beautiful color accuracy. Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface.
