William Merritt Chase : “Still Life with Hummingbird” (1870)

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.

While best-remembered for his Impressionist landscapes, William Merritt Chase’s artistic career was founded upon the strength of his still lifes. These often featured ordinary kitchen objects and Asian artifacts, beautifully arranged under dramatic lighting. “If you can paint a pot, you can paint an angel,” he once said. Later, he would take up fish as a favorite still life subject, painting wet into wet so quickly that he was able to return them to the market still fresh. Of the roughly 120 still lifes that he completed during his career, Still Life with Hummingbird is one of only ten that were based upon flowers.
