What does the original description of the The Cleveland Museum of Art state about this 19th century artwork painted by Léon Cogniet? (© - by The Cleveland Museum of Art - The Cleveland Museum of Art)

Although many artists of the Romantic movement sought evidence of ideal existence in the Orient and the Near East, Cogniet instead chose to depict an Eskimo with her distinctive tattoos. Indeed, this painting is among the first to use images of an unspoiled, "primitive" culture as an embodiment of truth and beauty. When this painting was shown in an 1826 exhibition, the accompanying catalogue stated that it was "painted after nature." However, the artist never traveled to the Arctic. Still, he may have actually seen an Eskimo. In 1825 a Paris newspaper reported that an Eskimo woman and her dog were performing in the city as part of a curiosity show. The show also included a massive panoramic view of Baffin Bay (located between northeast Canada and Greenland). That painting may have inspired the dark sky and icy landscape in Cogniet's picture.

  • Acrylic glass print: The print on acrylic glass, often named a print on plexiglass, will convert the original work of art into wall decoration. Besides, the acrylic glass print offers a great alternative option to aluminium or canvas prints. Your artwork is custom-made with the help of modern UV direct printing technology. It creates intense and sharp colors. The acrylic glass protects your custom art print against light and external influences for up to six decades.
  • Poster print (canvas material): Our poster is a UV printed sheet of cotton canvas with a granular structure on the surface. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm around the painting, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a print with an outstanding effect of depth - for a modern impression and a non-reflective surface structure. The Aluminium Dibond Print is the ideal introduction to art prints with aluminum. For our Aluminium Dibond option, we print the artpiece on the aluminium white-primed surface. The white & bright sections of the artpiece shimmer with a silk gloss but without glow. The colors of the print are luminous and bright, the details of the print are crisp and clear.
  • Canvas: The printed canvas material applied on a wooden frame. It makes a special look of three dimensionality. The canvas generates a nice, positive look. Hanging your canvas print: The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang the Canvas print without any wall-mounts. Hence, canvas prints are suitable for any type of wall.
