This unusual and striking Black & Red Butterfly Portrait Framed Canvas Print is a quirky take on a formal portrait and sure to evoke debate!
A collaboration between Young & Battaglia and talented artist Kirin Young, the Butterfly Collection blends classical art with a modern day twist. Formal portraits feature a butterfly obscuring the face of the subject to conceal their identity.
This wow factor artwork is a manipulation of the mid-17th century portrait of Jean-Baptiste Colbert by Baroque era painter Philippe de Champaigne.
Despite helping ensure France’s economic well-being for two centuries with the founding of the Académie Royale, Colbert was also involved in the creation of the Code Noir (1685) which gave sanction to a brutal system of torture and repression in the French colonial empire. To poke fun at such a person could be a source of satisfaction.
Made in England, each artwork is printed on stretched canvas and mounted in a 3.2cm classic black wooden box frame.
This will make an ideal feature piece in your home. The perfect portrait for a decadent living room, hallway or dining room.
Mini: 50.8cm x 40.6cm x 3.2cm
Small: 81.3cm x 66.0 cm x 3.2 cm
