“Illuminated prints” are made from a print of an illuminated manuscript, with the gold elements hand-painted back into the work to imitate the brilliance of an original.
This print is part of the Greek Mythology series.
“O Mother of Grain...here end your incessant labors, lest your great anger should injure the earth you once trusted, and which, unwillingly pillaged, has done nothing ignoble...”
From The Metamorphoses, trans. Charles Martin
In The Rape of Proserpina, the daughter of Ceres, goddess of harvest, is abducted by the god of the underworld. Ceres destroys the crops in her anger until the living stream Arethusa begs her to stop.
Each print is carefully packaged and securely shipped.
