About the Artist
Arthur Elsley lived from 1861 to 1952. Before the 19th Century, animals were kept in their place in paintings. However, the Victorian era brought with it a huge expansion to the middle classes, most of whom kept a pet. These newly "respectable" families took delight in seeing human emotions and familiar domestic situations portrayed through the antics of animals in art. Arthur John Elsley was a fine example of this phenomenon of Victorian animal art. He was famous for his landscapes as well as for his animal and children scenes.


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.
