An astute observer of human nature and an often biting satirist, Honoré Daumier here masterfully employed watercolor to illustrate the foibles of the French judicial system. Poverty forced Daumier to begin work at an early age; he once took a job as a messenger for the city's law courts, where he was exposed to the complexities and inequities of the legal system. The strong, dramatic diagonal of this composition focuses the viewer on the accused murderer. He leans over the dock to consult with his lawyer, who clearly controls the exchange, raising his right hand and seizing a sheaf of papers for reference. In contrast to the well-groomed and elegant lawyer, the criminal is wild-eyed and coarse. In the background a guard stands stiffly, oblivious to the exchange before him. In the gray courtroom, the empty space behind the guard suggests an air of anxiousness and uncertainty.

The great advantage of a plexiglass fine art copy is that contrasts as well as small color details become more recognizeable thanks to the subtle gradation of the print. The real glass coating protects your chosen art replica against light and heat for many years.
  • The canvas print: A canvas print, not to be confused with an artwork painted on a canvas, is a digital replica printed directly on canvas. Hanging your canvas print: Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which means that it is easy and straightforward to hang your Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suited for any kind of wall.
  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with an impressive depth effect. The non-reflective surface structure creates a fashionable look. The Aluminium Dibond Print is the perfect introduction to fine art replicas on aluminum. For our Direct Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print the favorite artpiece onto the aluminium composite white-primed surface. The colors of the print are bright and vivid in the highest definition, the fine details of the print are clear and crisp.
