About the Artist
Dorothy Tennant, who live from 1855 to 1926. Born in London, she studied art at the Slade School between 1871 and 1878 and later in Paris. Her work was exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1886. She married Sir Henry Morton Stanley, the eminent African explorer, in 1890 and is therefore often known in artistic circles as Lady Stanley. Chiefly known today as a painter of portraits and genre scenes, Lady Stanley lived mainly in London, where she died in October 1926.

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.

Dimensions (Inside Frame): W25"  H11"
