About The Art Piece

Bashi-bazouk is a classic masterpiece painted in 1869 by Jean-Léon Gérôme.

 

The painting depicts a dark-skinned model dressed as a Bashi-bazouk, an irregular soldier of the Ottoman Empire, raised in times of war. These were chiefly recruited from Albanians, Kurds and Circassians, but came from all ethnic groups. They were known for their bravery, but also as undisciplined and notorious for savagery and looting.

Gérôme acquired the garb seen in the painting during a trip to the near east in 1868. The haphazard and mixed textiles the model is dressed in is reminiscent of the Bashi-bazouks, as the soldiers were traditionally unpaid and did not adopt a standardized uniform, resulting in the soldiers wearing whatever they could acquire on a march. This a key point of the painting, as the brutal reputation of a Bashi-bazouk is contrasted by the silk tunic, quality clothes, and noble bearing of the subject

High Quality Materials

All prints are made using only high quality, archival grade fine art paper or canvas. Archival grade pigments and inks are used to produce beautiful, accurate and long lasting art pieces that will not discolour or fade for decades. We will fully replace any prints that fades or discolours before the end of its certified warranty period.

Archival Grade Canvas Frames & Stretcher Bars

Every archival grade canvas print comes with a premium double profiled, hand cut,  hard wood frame that is fitted on each stretched canvas. The frame creates a 'floating' effect and produces a modern and minimalist look that is easy to match the decor of any home. First grade, rot resistant and hand profiled stretcher bars are used to create a uniform frame that achieves a taut and high quality finish. Each canvas frame comes with a 30 year workmanship & discolouration resistant warranty.

Fine Art Paper Frame

Each fine art paper print is encased in an environmentally friendly fibreboard frame, mounted on acid free passepartout or mat to further enhance and separate the art piece from the frame's faux glass. The frame utilises safer polystyrene faux glass and will not shatter or break into sharp pieces when accidentally damaged.
