La Belle Dame Sans Merci, 1901: Canvas Replica Painting: Medium
By artist Sir Frank Dicksee, (1853-1928), in the City of Bristol Museum, England
In few other paintings is the element of desire felt as strongly as in "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" in which the beautiful young enchantress invites the embrace of a heroic knight in shining armor. British artist Dicksee translates the ballad of poet John Keats into a visual exhibition of textural fluidity and rich color. This 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. With bas-relief organic styling, the multi-tiered, replica European-style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with an aged gold-toned finish.
