 General Description:

These top-quality Fine Art Prints are printed on 100 percent acid free cotton archival Fine Art Paper: fine art velvet or ulrasmooth, depending on paper size. Ultrachrome inks enhance the archival properties of the media ensuring a print life of many generations.

The prints are reproduced as accurately as possible based on the original paintings. The images are not distorted in any way to make them fit standard print sizes. The images are enlarged or reduced proportionally to fit as close to the standard size as possible. This means the images are not cropped and each print will have every detail of the original painting. Consequently most prints will have a white border which can be covered with matte board prior to framing.

All orders are custom printed and shipped flat in boxes for domestic orders. Our largest prints and International orders are shipped on rolls due to shipping size restrictions. 

A very important note: Each print is custom made to order and is therefore non-returnable. In the unlikely event that the print has a production defect, it will be replaced with the same size reproduction of the same exact piece of artwork. There are no exceptions to this policy.

About this beautiful and heart-breaking image -

"The weeping Mary cloaked in a robe of black, mourning the death of her son Jesus, whom she clutches to her chest, is a religious masterpiece by the great French painter Willliam Bouguereau. The dead body of Jesus hangs limply in her arms while eight weeping angels surround them.

    The angels are clad in the colors of the rainbow and create an arc over Mary and Jesus. This arc could possibly symbolize the approach of Jesus’ resurrection. In the Old Testament, after the great flood had ended, Noah and his children saw a rainbow appear in the shape of the Ark, which was God’s way of saying that the flood was over and the world could be born anew. In Bouguereau’s Pieta, the rainbow might symbolize that the sacrifice of Jesus is complete and that the human soul can be born anew and ascend to God after death.

   At Jesus’ feet lies the crown of thorns used to mock him during the Crucifixion; it lies on a white cloth covered in the blood of Christ, showing the torment Jesus went though in order that humanity could attain salvation. The white robe and pitcher of water represent the purity of Jesus' soul. Both Jesus and Mary are surrounded by a halo of light indicating their holiness."
