Serigraph
55" x 20"

Product Details

Also known as silk screening, serigraphy is a process by which multiple layers of ink are manually pressed through fine screens, resulting in a bold and vibrant paint-like layer of ink on an art print of gallery quality.

About the Art

Henri Matisse (1869 – 1954), considered to be the 20th century’s most important French painter, communicated joy with expressive colors, striking ornamentation and bold patterns. Matisse, whose mother gave him his first art supplies while he was recovering from an illness, described his discovery of art as “a kind of paradise.” He was originally viewed as a Fauvist, and his early works were exceptionally mature. Influenced by Impressionism and Japanese art, Matisse made color a crucial element of his work, and also experimented with expressive abstraction. When he was nearly 80, Matisse volunteered to decorate the Dominican nuns' chapel at Vence, France. Suffering from anxiety, Matisse found serenity in painting.

    We have this in our kitchen/breakfast room, and it greets us every morning with its colour and celebration, whatever the weather!

    Because it is a kind of silkscreen the colours are bright; you feel you're looking at an original.

    The size is a definite plus. Matisse doesn't do things by halves!

      Comments:

      The colors in this late work of Matisse were just what I was looking for to brighten the room. The size (5 feet wide) was large enough not to be overpowered by the large blank wall. The print quality (silk screening) gave me much better quality than a paper print, at a price I could afford. Very happy with everything.

        The print hangs in our bathroom, and it's vivid colours have brought the room to life. It comes rolled in a tube and our framer was concerned that it might not flatten in the frame. However, once framed it looks perfect.
