Red Robe has a Limited Edition print run of 50 across 3 A sizes. Each giclée print comes unframed with a white border, printed with archival inks, with a digitally signed label by the artist. The Limited Edition print captures the details, textures and colours of the original artwork and is printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gsm paper.
The composition of Red Robe draws inspiration from renaissance classics like Rapahel’s "Triumph of Galatea." As part of The Brutta Figura Project, ‘Brutta figura’ in Italian culture is when someone appears in a bad light. The antithesis is bella figura, something which everyone hopes to attain and is arguably keeping up appearances.
Painted using natural pigments made in her studio, Colette created this piece by using minerals such as iron oxide and bohemian green earth mixed with linseed oil, which resulted in a thick, luscious archival quality oil paint. Applied to Italian linen, the painting consists of large impasto expressionist marks, from which figures emerge.
In addition to the work available through H&E, this artist has an extensive portfolio available on request. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy.
