Artwork description by the museum (© Copyright - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

In 1859 John Brown, the controversial abolitionist, led a raid on a federal armory in Harpers Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia), intending to arm enslaved African Americans. Brown had come to believe that the only way to end slavery in America was through bloodshed. Captured and convicted of treason against the Commonwealth of Virginia, Brown was sentenced to die by hanging. His hasty trial electrified the nation, and a sensational newspaper account reported how he paused on his way to the scaffold to kiss a baby. At the request of a patron two decades later, Hovenden, also an abolitionist, made it the subject of this sympathetic work.

  • Aluminium dibond print: Aluminium Dibond prints are metal prints with a true effect of depth - for a modern impression and non-reflective surface structure. The bright & white parts of the original artwork shimmer with a silky gloss, however without glare. This UV print on Aluminum Dibond is the most popular entry-level product and is an extremely modern way to display art, as it draws attention on the image.
  • Canvas: A canvas print, not to be confused with a real painting on a canvas, is a digital copy printed on an industrial printer. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without the help of extra wall-mounts. Because of thata canvas print is suited for any type of wall.
  • Poster (canvas material): A poster is a UV printed sheet of canvas with a granular surface texture. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm round about the artwork, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Print on glossy acrylic glass: An print on acrylic glass, often referred to as a UV print on plexiglass, will transform the original artwork into great décor. With a glossy acrylic glass fine art print sharp contrasts plus granular color details become more exposed thanks to the granular tonal gradation in the print.
