Narrative

This fine art print recounts the story of a voyage of discovery into the world of visual art; spanning from the Middle Ages to the present day. Although the composition is partly based on Rembrandt’s painting “The Steel Masters” this is not the subject. Here, six great masters of art are depicted as a party onboard a ship that has been named after them: The Golden Ark. These great masters are Lichtenstein, Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Dali and Appel. Each master is accompanied on the journey by one of his masterpieces – each symbolizing an art movement: Pop Art; Impressionism; Cubism; Fauvism; Surrealism; and Abstract Expressionism (Cobra).

The Golden Ark sails throughout the ages, leaving the various art movements in its wake. Eventually the ship ties up. The atmosphere and backdrop in which the ship finds itself is the birthplace for a new visual art movement: De Stijl (The Style)! Mondrian was an important proponent of this movement. The Golden Ark ventures further into the 21st century. Maybe she will encounter some new movements…

Fine Art Print/ Giclée/Piezo Graphic

Fine art print is a high resolution printmaking technique whereby high quality ink is sprayed onto paper. When the process was invented in the late 1980s the name originally applied to fine arts. At the same time, fine art print is also known as giclée or piezo graphic. To clarify the word Giclée we have to look at the French word gicleur, which means ‘nozzle’. While the term piezo is derived from the Greek word piezein, meaning to press. Therefore an indefinite number of prints can be made with this technique. However Toyism fine art prints/giclées/piezo graphics always come in a limited edition, are numbered, signed and come with an official certificate.
