17"x15" (43x38cm) Premium Frame

FSC real wood frame with double mounted 10x8 print. Double mounted with white conservation mountboard. Frame moulding comprises stained composite natural wood veneers (Finger Jointed Pine) 39mm wide by 21mm thick. Archival quality Fujifilm CA photo paper mounted onto 1mm card. Overall outside dimensions are 17x15 inches (431x381mm). Rear features Framing tape to cover staples, 50mm Hanger plate, cork bumpers. Glazed with durable thick 2mm Acrylic to provide a virtually unbreakable glass-like finish. Acrylic Glass is far safer, more flexible and much lighter than typical mineral glass. Moreover, its higher translucency makes it a perfect carrier for photo prints. Acrylic allows a little more light to penetrate the surface than conventional glass and absorbs UV rays so that the image and the picture quality doesn't suffer under direct sunlight even after many years. Easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Please note that, to prevent the paper falling through the mount window and to prevent cropping of the original artwork, the visible print may be slightly smaller to allow the paper to be securely attached to the mount without any white edging showing and to match the aspect ratio of the original artwork.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This comedic drawing by Fernand Fau captures a humorous moment between a wealthy rentier and his maid. Created in 1895 for the French journal "The Rire" this artwork showcases Fau's talent for caricature and satire. In the image, we see the rentier, dressed in fine attire, engaged in conversation with his bonne (maid). The exaggerated features of both characters add to the comical effect of the scene. The rentier appears pompous and self-important, while the maid seems amused by his antics. Fau's attention to detail is evident in every aspect of this print. From the intricate engravings to the delicate shading, he brings these characters to life on paper. The setting suggests a bourgeois household during France's beautiful period, providing insight into societal norms and domestic dynamics at that time. This artwork not only serves as entertainment but also offers commentary on class distinctions and human communication. Fau skillfully uses humor to shed light on these topics, making it relatable even over a century later. As part of a private collection now available through Bridgeman Images' Fine Art Finder platform, this print allows us to appreciate Fau's artistic prowess and delve into an intriguing era of French history. It reminds us that art has always been a powerful medium for social critique and reflection.
