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 image –
"The Flagellation of Christ is one of Bouguereau’s greatest religious masterpieces. Christ, tied to a column, limply hangs; with his feet dragging on the ground and head hung back he submits to his fate. Two men stand in mid swing with their whipping ropes flying through the air. A third man kneeling to the lower right is fastening birch branches for the next part of the beating. Yet a forth man can be seen standing behind the attacker to the right also with birch branches in the ready. The viewer can feel the pain of Christ's torment. Christ is surrounded by a group of curious spectators. To the left a young boy shelters his eyes from the horrid sight by turning his back and pressing himself against his mother. To the right, just above Christ’s head, a baby looks down at him sympathetically while hoisted up on his father’s shoulders. This life size masterpiece is every bit as great any religious works done by Raphael, Leonardo, or Caravaggio. The harmonious interplay of drawing, paint handling, composition, perspective with this powerful emotional thrust are 2nd to none."
