About the Artist
Sir Thomas Kennington, who was born in the coastal English town of Great Grimsby in 1856, Kennington was a superb exponent of oils and water colours, infusing his portraits and genre scenes with a rare liveliness and sense of colour. He shows a true understanding of human nature, as well as a deep artistic skill in his brilliant portrait work.
Kennington studied at the Liverpool School of Art, the Royal College of Art and at the Academie Julien in Paris. He then made a permanent move to London, where he enjoyed a successful career and taught his son, who was a talented painter and sculptor.
About the Print
This print is finished with a matte "textured" coating, which gives your art an elegant appearance. Then, we framed it in our F2151 "masterpiece" frame, giving a museum quality appearance. All of our richly designed frames have an antique finish with subtle accents to highlight the intricate detail, then a low sheen sealer is applied. The Watermark in the center of the images will not appear on final art.
About the Frame
These masterpiece frames are made of solid wood, with the exception of the F3242 frame, which is cast resin, and then covered with an outer layer of sculpting material called Gesso (pronounced like Jesso). You can see this outer layer on the side views of the frames. Gesso is a traditional mix of a glue binder, chalk, and white pigment, used to coat rigid surfaces, such as wooden painting panels as an absorbent primer coat substrate for painting. It is also used by sculptures to prepare the shape of the final sculpture (fused bronze) or directly as a material for sculpting. Gesso can also be used as a layer between sculptured wood and gold leaf. A collection of gesso sculptures is properly called gypsotheque. Please allow 5-7 weeks for this work of art.
