About

Olympia draws on the long history of the reclining female nude, bringing their themes and techniques into contemporary times. Manet was influenced some some highly recognizable reclining female nudes such as Titian’s Venus of Urbino and Goya’s Maja desnuda, yet his actual subject matter is entirely of its times. Instead of building up a mythos around the reclined woman, Manet explicitly depicts her as a sex worker awaiting a client. She is a woman at work, not bothering to look seductively at the viewer, or to proffer herself to them in hopes that they will find her appealing, instead her sits somewhat rigidly to conduct a transaction. The serving woman bring her a large bouquet of flowers, likely from a client, but Olympia is unmoved in his absence. Manet intentionally made Olympia’s body somewhat washed out, influenced by the introduction of the daguerreotype, he flattened her body and omitted details rather the same way the bright flash of the early photography tool would have.

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 mat 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 a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.

Please note that the images of frames displayed here are meant to be representative of those used in our custom-framed products, but may not exactly match the ones in the actual products
