William Glackens : “Girl with Apple” (1909-1910)

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.

Is this a modern Eve about to take a bite of the apple? William Glackens certainly counted on his viewers to make that association. Many of his models were young women earning their living in New York by entering the workforce in an expanding labor market. Glackens offered a fresh American update on the subject of the nude studio model by including a modern woman and fashionable contemporary attire. In paraphrasing one of France’s most famous paintings, Édouard Manet’s Olympia, he also aligned this work with one that was daring in its own time.
