The Latin noun VANITAS means 'emptiness', 'futility', or 'worthlessness', the traditional Christian view being that earthly goods and pursuits are transient and worthless. VANITAS themes were common in medieval funerary art. By the 15th century, these could be extremely morbid and explicit, reflecting an increased obsession with death and decay. Common VANITAS symbols include skulls, which are a reminder of the certainty of death; rotten fruit (decay); bubbles (the brevity of life and suddenness of death); smoke, watches, and hourglasses (the brevity of life); and musical instruments (brevity and the ephemeral nature of life). Fruit, flowers and butterflies can be interpreted in the same way, and a peeled lemon was, like life, attractive to look at but bitter to taste.
This print is Signed & numbered by the Artist on the IMAGE, NOT on the white outer border of the print. NOTE: The print can be signed on the outer white border if you request it in notes at checkout. However, this will give your framer fewer color choices for the matte because the white border will need to be exposed to show the signature.
These Heavy Paper Giclee prints are printed on 100% acid-free, 255 gsm paper, 18ML, .02 inch thickness. It's thick and feels solid to the touch. Thicker paper allows for the use of more ink, and more ink creates a deeper, richer print. The inks I use will not fade for 70-80 years according to the manufacturer. The finish is Semi-Gloss, (aka: "SATIN").
Framing instructions will be included with the print.
