“The Poppies”


A museum-quality fine art giclée print of this beautiful work by Swedish artist Carl Larsson. Available framed or unframed.

This beautiful Duille fine art print features “Vallmor / Les coquelicots” ( ‘The Poppies’ ) by Carl Larsson, painted in 1884.

Larsson was born in Stockholm in 1853 and is one of the most famous Swedish artists of the twentieth century. After a troubled early life he trained at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts and supported his parents from a young age working as a caricaturist and illustrator. He moved to Paris in 1877 where he settled and raised a large family.

About the work
Vallmor / Les coquelicots was commissioned by actor and art collector Benoît-Constant Coquelin from Larsson at the Paris Salon of 1884. Though the artist had remained independent of the Impressionist movement this work shows a strong influence of their style. Claude Monet’s Poppy Field was first shown a decade previously.

A young child ( possibly Jean, only son of the actor ) walks through a sunlit meadow of long grass and poppies. The soft light, fuzzy richness of a summer landscape and the wistful subject make a beautiful scene of great appeal.

About giclée
The giclée process is ‘the best kind of fine art print available today’ and uses precision digital technology. Favoured by leading international museums and fine artists for superb detail and quality of reproduction with rich saturated colour. These prints are often mistaken for originals.

As with any work of art we recommend displaying your print away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.

Made to last
This is a hand-finished, museum-quality archival print made using materials which will last for many years. It is printed in archival quality pigment inks on Somerset Velvet 255gsm acid free paper reproducing the original work. This heavyweight mould-made paper won’t yellow or degrade like inferior products. Our prints will stay true, bright and beautiful for years.
