Sea Melodies, 1904: Canvas Replica Painting: Medium
By artist Herbert James Draper (1863-1920), in a Private Collection
Exhibited at London's Royal Academy in 1904, beautiful sea nymphs succumb to the enchanted dream of seaside melodies in this early 20th century fantasy. With a unique blend of mythology and artistry, British artist Herbert Draper mesmerized the art world with his almost erotic works. 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. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones.
