Mrs Francis Howard

Artist: Ambrose McEvoy

Date:  ca. 1916

Ambrose McEvoy, 1877 - 1927, was an English artist who started out painting landscapes very much influenced by Whistler's style but in later life gained success as a portrait painter. He trained at the Slade School of Fine arts where he began at the age of only 15.

The sitter : I have searched and searched for information about this beautifully serene woman but all I can find is that her maiden name was 'L. Chess' and she was from Louisville, not even a first name. Francis Howard, her husband, was the the great grandson of Benjamin Franklin and was the founder of 'the other Grosvenor Gallery', 51a New Bond Street, and the National Portrait Society. He was the representative of a group of American artists living in Europe, who felt that there should be an American national gallery. Their son was the poet Brian Howard.

What size frame do I need ?

Each piece of artwork in the Musée gallery has been resized to work perfectly with International 'A' paper sizes.

All you need to think about when framing your Musée artwork is that it needs tobe in the appropriate A sized frame.

This means that no part of your artworkwill be lost to cropping when choosing frame sizes. It also means thateverything will work proportionately in gallery walls, and print sets.

Quality

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
