Naples Through A Window

Artist: Franz Ludwig Catel
Date:1824

Doesn't this picture just transport you straight to this room in the Bay of Naples? Is it a living room or a bedroom? Early morning or late afternoon with the slightest breeze ruffling those muslin curtains? Has the dog just seen his master approaching in the street? So many questions. Catel was born at Berlin in 1778. He began his artistic career by carving in wood, and then designed book illustrations. In 1807 he went to Paris, where he studied oil painting. In 1812 he was in Rome where he followed the new classic school of landscape, working hard on his perspective and gaining a great mastery over light and shade. He was an amusing companion as well as a talented artist and a great favourite of German noblemen visiting Rome; there he met the future King Ludwig I of Bavaria, whom he painted surrounded by his friends in “Crown Prince Ludwig in the Spanish Wine Cellar”. The success of his paintings made him prosperous enough to be able to set up and entirely finance a fund for young artists in Rome. He died in Rome in 1856.

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.
