Print of The Nut Gatherers, 1882, by William Adolphe Bouguereau.
The original oil on canvas work is in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Bouguereau shows us two innocent girls posing in a glade, unaware of the dangers of life. The fresh faces, smooth skin, and bare feet remind us of the vulnerability of youth and of that privileged world of simple pleasures and intense youthful friendship before the responsibilities of adult life begin. Bouguereau was a teacher who upheld traditional values in painting at the Académie des Beaux Arts in Paris.
Printed with archival-quality pigment inks on high-resolution, large-format twelve-color printers, the substrate is an acid-free and lignin-free 230gsm coated fine art paper. The bright white base color and smooth matte finish allows for the highest quality reproduction possible.
The image size is 10.5 x 7 inches on an 11 x 14 white ground, allowing it to fit into a standard 11 x 14 inch frame.
