A Terrier Sitting Left

Artist: Peter De Wint


Date:1784-1849

De Wint was born in Stoke on Trent, England at the start of 1784. in the early 1800s he moved to London to be apprenticed to an engraver and portrait artist by the name of Raphael Smith - he was released from his apprenticeship in 1806 only on the promise that he would provide 18 paintings over the next two years.  He first exhibited for the Royal Academy in 1807 and by 1811 he was considered an established drawing master and became a full member of the Old Watercolour Society. He spent his summers teaching in well to do provincial families.  Many of his landscapes and haymaking scenes are set in Lincolnshire, the county his wife came from. He devoted his life to art and was considered to be one the most important English watercolourists. I like to think that this little terrier was a quick sketch of a beloved family dog accompanying him on some landscape painting trip, even though we will never know for sure.

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.
