Queen Cleopatra, set out in her royal adornments, lies stone dead upon a bed of gold in this scene taken almost directly from Plutarch's, Life of Antony. Conjuring the image with a rich balance of mythology and a fascination with the Orient, French painter Rixens displays the skill for historic portraiture that made him a Chevalier of the Legion d Honneur. 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.

      Jean-Andre Rixens (1846-1925)
      Victorian Orientalist painter Jean-Andre Rixens was a historical and portrait painter. He was born in Saint-Gaudens France in 1846. In 1876 Rixens debuted paintings at the Salon where he won Second and Third Class Medals. In 1889 at the Exposition Universelle Rixens was awarded a Gold Medal.

      Rixen's paintings such as Death of Cleopatra show the artist's fascination with the Orient with the panther in the foreground as well as his penchant for the mythological. By 1900 Rixens paintings had made him a Chevalier of the Legion d' Honneur and a Member of the National Fine Art Society. He died in 1925.
