About

Proserpine is a portrait of the mythical figure and the Empress of Hades and is modeled after Jane Morris, the wife of a fellow artist William Morris. Proserpine is depicted staring at the grand with her hands wrapped around a pomegranate. The background surrounding her is a gloomy palace, painted with dark colors. The background represents her unhappy marriage and forced marriage with Hades, and the pomegranate represented the fruit that bound her to the underworld. However, a single light shines into the room and frames her face, representing the light from the upper world. She stares at the light and seems immersed in thought. The sensuality and emotion in the painting can be found in her pose and face evoking a moment of hopefulness.

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
