Francois de Nome : “Head of Saint John the Baptist Presented to Salome” (c. 1620-1624)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

This scene from earliest Christian history is set amid fantasy architecture, mysteriously lit under dark skies. The small scale of the figures makes the buildings seem enormous. De Nomé’s mixture of classical and late medieval Gothic elements from his homeland adds to the uniqueness and eccentricity of the composition. The small size of the copper plate and the complexity of the composition calls attention to the artist’s virtuosity and skill.
