Original artwork description as provided by the museum (© - The Cleveland Museum of Art - The Cleveland Museum of Art)

Salome’s dancing so pleased her stepfather Herod that he offered her anything she wanted. Her mother advised Salome to demand John the Baptist’s head, which Salome presented to her family in an elaborate dish. Here, the head stands on its own, with a startlingly tangible presence. Despite its biblical source, this work was meant for a domestic setting, whose owner would have admired the artful presentation of a shocking story. Acquired in 1953 as the work of the Venetian Renaissance artist Titian, the painting soon lost this attribution because it lacks Titian’s distinctive brushwork. After decades of research, the museum has yet to identify a clear author. Recently, several scholars have argued persuasively for a Spanish artist, partly because the subject is common in Spanish art in the early 1600s. Yet the color scheme and the handling of paint in the face recalls the work of earlier artists inspired by Titian in northern Italy.

It makes the unique look of three dimensionality. Hanging a canvas print: The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which means that it is quite simple to hang up the Canvas print without the support of additional wall-mounts.

Important note: We try all that we can to describe the art products with as many details as we can and to exhibit them visually on the different product detail pages. Still, some pigments of the print materials and the print result can vary somehwat from the representation on the device's screen. Depending on the screen settings and the quality of the surface, color pigments can unfortunately not be printed as realistically as the digital version on this website. In view of the fact that all fine art prints are printed and processed by hand, there may as well be slight deviations in the motif's size and exact position.
