'Loopt Loopt Met Groot Verblyden, Hier Salmen twyf van Lije Snyden', 17th century. This image shows a quack doctor about to make an incision in a woman's head to remove the stones that are supposedly embedded within it. This was a popular subject matter in late 16th and early 17th century prints in the Netherlands and mocked the gullibility and simple nature of village people. Stones in one's head was seen as the cause of stupidity and a number of other ailments. This is where the English idiom 'rocks in the head' comes from.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
