Architectural Design, probably for a Church

Artist: Alfred Stevens

Date:  1817 - 1875

Alfred Stevens was born in Dorset in 1817. In 1833 he went to study in Italy, nine years studying all over the country including Florence where he studied for a time at the Accademia di Belle Arti. Stevens never attended an English school. In 1845, Stevens obtained a tutorial position in the School of Design at Somerset House, London, where he remained until 1847. In 1850 he became chief artist to a Sheffield metal work firm who specialised in bronze. He returned to London in 1852. In 1856, Stevens took part in the competition for the Wellington monument, originally intended to be set up under one of the great arches of St Paul's Cathedral, although it took a further 36 years to get it placed in the originally chosen spot after several years in a side chapel. Stevens devoted most of his career to this grand monument, constantly harassed and finally worn out by the interference of government, want of money and other difficulties. Sadly, he did not live to see the monument set up.

Not to be confused with the Belgian painter known for his paintings of elegant modern women, Alfred Emile Leopold Stevens (1823-1906).

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.
