Select your material

For every art print we offer different sizes & materials. We allow you to pick your favorite size and material among the following product individualization options:

  • Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating): A glossy print on acrylic glass, which is often referred to as a plexiglass print, changes the original into marvellous décor. Moreover, the acrylic glass print makes a good alternative option to canvas or aluminium dibond art prints. The work of art will be manufactured thanks to the help of state-of-the-art UV direct printing machines. This creates impressive, vivid color tones.
  • The canvas print: The UV printed canvas stretched on a wooden frame. A canvas print has the advantage of being low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang up the Canvas print without any wall-mounts. A canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): This is a metal print manufactured on aluminium dibond with an impressive effect of depth. The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the ideal introduction to art replicas produced with alu. For your Direct Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your artpiece right on the surface of the white-primed aluminum material.
  • Poster print (canvas material): Our poster is a printed sheet of canvas with a slightly roughened texture on the surface. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin between 2-6cm around the artwork in order to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.

One of Redon's favorite themes of the 1880s and 1890s was a human head depicted in profile. This motif came from his representations of severed heads, often carried aloft on wings, published in the artist's first album of prints, Dans le rêve (1879). In these images, the separation of the head from the body symbolizes the spirit released from the material world. It also suggests a metaphor for abandoning physical reality for the inner realm of dreams, fantasy, and poetic reverie. This painting conveys the idea of inward-turning vision by framing the head in a series of collapsing rectangles. Redon isolated the head even further by painting a horizontal rectangle or "ledge" over the lower part of the figure's body, which originally extended to the bottom edge of the composition. Conservation analysis confirms that the figure is a woman wearing a helmet and holding a green staff in her right hand. However, her exact identity is not known, largely because after altering the crest and other aspects of the helmet, Redon abandoned the painting in an unresolved state.
