(based on 1 review)

By artist Frank Dicksee (1853-1928), in a Private Collection
A brave medieval knight saves his fair, imperiled maiden in this virtuously illustrative tale executed with textural fluidity and rich orchestrations of color. A British painter and illustrator who studied in the studio of his father, Thomas Francis Dicksee, this well-regarded artist belonged to London's Royal Academy. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.

   Sir Frank Dicksee (1853-1928)

English painter and illustrator. He studied in the studio of his father, Thomas Francis Dicksee , who painted portraits and historical genre scenes; he then entered the Royal Academy Schools, London, where he was granted a studentship in 1871. He won a silver medal for drawing from the Antique in 1872 and a gold medal in 1875 for his painting Elijah confronting Ahab and Jezebel in Naboth's Vineyard, with which he made his debut at the Royal Academy in 1876. He also began to work as an illustrator during the 1870s.

Dicksee's paintings are executed with textural fluidity and rich orchestrations of color. They reveal a curious blend of influences, in particular the classicism of Frederic Leighton and the abstracted idealism of G. F. Watts. He passionately championed the Victorian ideals of High Art and publicly condemned the artistic trends that emerged towards the end of his life. His work covers a wide range of subject-matter and genres, including biblical and allegorical paintings; among those derived from literary sources are Chivalry. He also painted society portraits and social dramas, such as The Confession.
