Regular price $50.00 Sale

This poster is a print of Love, an etching circa 1885-87 from Paul-Albert Besnard. Much of Besnard's work depicts women — Love is part of his series of prints, La Femme, sympathetic explorations of the experience of being a woman. 

Available in 18 x 24 and 12 x 16 inches.

This version of Love is printed in USA on museum-quality, archival, acid-free matte paper — 10.3 mil, 192 grams per square inch — with an opacity of 94% and ISO brightness of 104%. The poster is surrounded by a .75-thick, black, alder frame and covered with an Acrylite front protector. Hanging hardware is attached. Made in Los Angeles.

Look at the picture of the unframed poster to get a better idea of the actual image quality. These framed mock-ups make everything look fuzzy. Also, the mock-ups sometimes make it look like there's a crease across the poster — there's not!

Paul-Albert Besnard

Paul-Albert Besnard was one of those rare fortunate artists: He was born in Paris, he died in Paris, and in between he was a success at everything he touched. He was a celebrated artist in watercolor, oil, pastel, etchings. He was awarded prestigious positions and commissions. He painted large frescos at the Sorbonne and around Paris, and the ceiling of the Comédie-Française.

His work was influenced by his travels to India, Morocco, Algeria, Italy and Spain, and by his attraction to Japanese prints.
