With Halloween creeping fast around the corner, we had to stop and take notice of these dark, demonic prints. There are rarely opportunities as perfect for a double mat and a black mat at that. Wohoooo... spooky...
This print of an original etching by Boëtius Adamsz titled 'Death' showcases an angel at the left, a devil and the personification of Death ready to spear the man beyond. Fantastic conversation starter.
A quarter inch of white mat peeks out from beneath the black matboard adding drama and creating the gothic ambience that makes this piece an erie revelation. For some pieces a black color mat can be overwhelming or stifling to the piece. Here is an example where the subject matter and mat become harmonious.
Paired together with Albrecht Dürer's 'Knight, Death, and the Devil' these two make a striking pair. Our customer requested the outer dimensions of the frames be identical to one another creating unity despite the varying sizes of the images themselves.
Look how seamless the effect is! A champagne metallic frame with small detailing compliments the final product echoing grandeur and elegance. These two are a match made in heaven...or I guess, in this case....hell.
