LE Canvas - Dorian Gray
Dorian Gray - Limited Edition Canvas Prints - My own cat version of Oscar Wilde's handsome, narcissistic, immortal, Dorian Gray. He's in the attic standing in the candlelight next to his grotesque decomposing portrait. I have painted my cat Dorian as a blonde with blue eyes just as he was described in the story. Wilde's novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray was first published complete in the July 1890.
Quote from The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde - "How sad it is!" murmured Dorian Gray with his eyes still fixed upon his own portrait. "How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrible, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young. It will never be older than this particular day of June… . If it were only the other way! If it were I who was to be always young, and the picture that was to grow old! For that—for that—I would give everything! Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give! I would give my soul for that!”

How I create each canvas print; It is a 3 day process to complete one of these canvas prints. The image is printed with my professional quality giclee printer on a sheet of prepared artist's canvas. Then I add hand paint details of the image with acrylic paint and hand sign and number the print. The canvas print is then hand coated and set with a UV protectant giclee varnish shield giving it a glossy finish just like the original painting. Last, the canvas is stretched onto 3/4" stretch bars with staple-free sides that are black. The back of the canvas has a sawtooth hanger and is ready to display and is also signed by me, the artist, including the title date and edition number. I would also be happy to personalize the back of the canvas at your request. Edition Number, Signature & brushstrokes will vary since these are hand embellished.
**NOTE: LE Canvas Prints are available Un-Stretched upon request. Please let me know if you would like your canvas flat and not on stretch bars.**
