Original information about the artwork from the museum's website (© Copyright - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

A schoolboy, identifiable by the books on the desk, contemplates soap bubbles, traditional symbols of the transience of life. A wilting laurel wreath on the wall behind him suggests the fleeting nature of praise and honors. The word "immortalité," inscribed on the paper inserted in the mirror, reinforces the painting’s allegorical content.Couture was an influential teacher known for his opposition to strict academic instruction. Among his pupils was Manet, who in 1867 painted his own, more naturalistic, version of this subject (Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon).

Additionally, the acrylic glass print offers a viable alternative option to canvas or dibond fine art replicas. The work of art is custom-made with the help of state-of-the-art UV print machines. The major benefit of an acrylic glass fine art copy is that sharp contrasts plus artwork details will be more recognizeable thanks to the very subtle tonal gradation. Our plexiglass with real glass coating protects your selected fine art print against light and external influences for between 40-60 years.
