What does the website of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art write about this 19th century artwork made by Jean-Léon Gérôme? (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art -

This arresting picture was made after Gérôme returned to Paris from a twelve-week journey to the Near East in early 1868. He was at the height of his career when he dressed a model in his studio with textiles he had acquired during the expedition. The artist’s Turkish title for this picture—which translates as "headless"—evokes the unpaid irregular soldiers who fought ferociously for plunder under Ottoman leadership, although it is difficult to imagine this man charging into battle wearing such an exquisite silk tunic. Gérôme’s virtuosic treatment of textures provides a sumptuous counterpoint to the figure’s dignified bearing.

The product dropdown menu gives you the opportunity to select the size and material of your choice. Thus, we allow you to choose among the following options:

  • Canvas print: The printed canvas, not to be confused with a canvas painting, is a digital image printed directly on cotton canvas. Canvas Prints have the advantage of being relatively low in weight, meaning that it is easy to hang up your Canvas print without the help of extra wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suitable for any type of wall.
  • Printed poster on canvas material: Our poster print is a printed canvas paper with a granular surface texture. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin of around 2 - 6cm round about the painting to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Aluminium print (aluminium dibond): An Aluminium Dibond print is a print with a true depth - for a modern look and non-reflective surface. A direct Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the best introduction to fine art replicas on aluminum.
  • Acrylic glass print: An acrylic glass print, which is often referred to as a plexiglass print, transforms an original artwork into home decoration. Your artwork is being custom-made with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct printing machines. This creates impressive and vivid print colors. The major upside of an acrylic glass print is that contrasts and smaller painting details become more exposed with the help of the very fine tonal gradation. Our plexiglass protects your custom art replica against sunlight and heat for up to six decades.
