'Kaiser Heinrich IV. 1050-1106', 1934. Henry IV of Germany outside the gates of Canossa, Italy, 1077 (1913). Barefoot, clad in a hair shirt, Henry appeared before the gates, begging for admission. Henry IV (1050-1106) was King of Germany from 1056 and Holy Roman Emperor from 1084. In 1077, he performed penance outside the gates of Canossa Castle in order to persuade Pope Gregory VII to reverse his excommunication. The incident occurred during the Investiture Controversy, a conflict between church and state that broke out in 1075 and led to Germany being embroiled in civil war for almost half a century. From Die Großen der Weltgelchichte. [Ecktein-Halpaus, Dresden, 1934]
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.
