Additional description from The Metropolitan Museum of Art (© - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

A typical work by Peto, this painting bears the false signature of William Michael Harnett, his better-known contemporary. Actually, Harnett seems to have been inspired to create “rack” paintings by Peto’s example in pictures such as this one. Some of the objects stuck in the grid are dated or datable and provide clues to the years when the artist seems to have worked on the painting. The photograph of Peto’s daughter shown at the upper left was probably added, over an earlier portrait, around 1900, when the girl was about seven. Peto’s delineation of objects is more generalized and less purely descriptive than Harnett’s.

Pick your material

In the dropdown selection right next to the product offering you can pick your prefered size and material. You can choose among the following product customization options:

  • The poster print (canvas material): The poster is a UV printed cotton canvas with a slight finish on the surface. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin between 2-6 cm round about the print motif, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Print on glossy acrylic glass (with real glass coating): An acrylic glass print, often labelled as a an art print on plexiglass, will change your favorite original artwork into great home décor. The work of art will be manufactured with the help of state-of-the-art UV printing machines. With an acrylic glass art print sharp contrasts and smaller color details become more identifiable with the help of the very subtle gradation of the picture.
  • The canvas print: The printed canvas, which should not be confused with a canvas painting, is a digital image applied on a cotton canvas fabric. It creates the unique impression of three-dimensionality. A printed canvas of your favorite work of art will give you the unique opportunity to turn your into a large artwork as you would see in a gallery. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight. This means, it is easy and straightforward to hang the Canvas print without the support of any wall-mounts. That is why, canvas prints are suitable for all types of walls.
  • Aluminium dibond print: This is a metal print manufactured on aluminium dibond with a true depth effect. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is your ideal introduction to fine reproductions with aluminum. For your Aluminium Dibond print, we print the selected artpiece on the surface of the aluminum composite. The white and bright components of the original artpiece shine with a silk gloss, however without glow. The colors of the print are luminous and vivid in the highest definition, details of the print appear very clear, and you can feel a matte appearance.
