Acrylic Print "Marguerite au chat noir"
About the Artwork
Henri Matisse (1869-1954)
Marguerite au chat noir
Oil on canvas
94 x 64 cm
This work stands out as one the moste stylised of the thirty or so portraits Matisse painted of his daughter. The frontal, hieratic pose adopted by the fifteen year-old Marguerite already augurs a certain seriousness, not to say courage: the high collar and brooch mask the tracheotomy scar of a child who faced illness from an early age.
The technique of printing under acrylic glass used by the greatest artists gives the works a very contemporary look, depth and brings intensity to the colours. Acrylic glass (Plexiglas®) is unbreakable, lighter than glass and easy to clean with a sponge.
- Thickness of the acrylic: 2 mm.
- Bright finish.
- Aluminum laminated rear panel Dibond black 3 mm
