Appearing in the February 1, 1921, Vogue, this illustration, by Claire Avery, clearly depicts a Cretan snake goddess figurine from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection. While this costume dates to 1700-1550 BC, it looks surprisingly modern with a cinched waist and skirt à la Polonaise, a cutaway, draped overskirt worn over a separate skirt, which was fashionable in the 1770s and 1780s, and revived in the 1870s.
The premium giclée print is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper made from alpha cellulous wood pulp that is acid free. It shares the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution that make giclée prints the standard for museums and galleries around the world.
The premium photographic print is digitally printed on high-gloss premium photographic paper. The result is a unique silver pearlescent finish with stunning visual impact and depth, suitable for museum or gallery display.
The stretched canvas print is the result of sophisticated digital printing technology in which the image is printed directly onto an artist-grade, 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is then expertly stretched around 1.5" wooden bars and carefully finished with hand-painted edges. An acrylic coating protects the stunning giclée print from dust, moisture and fading. (Canvas may not be available for all prints.)
