Edouard Benedictus was a painter, writer, composer and chemist who started his carreer in the Art Nouveau period. He wrote an influential article in L'Art décoratif in 1912. However, he was greatly receptive to the stylistic evolution started in 1912 and that became Art Deco. Appreciated for his portfolios "Variations" in 1923 and "Nouvelles variations" in 1928, he became one the most famous artists of the floral Art Deco. He played a special role in the Pavillion de l'Ambassade Francaise in the Exposition des Arts Decoratifs in Paris in 1925. He worked with the most famous Parisian designers in this period, including Andre Groult for whom he created many tapestries for furniture.
"Bénédictus was famous for his elegant silks and satins designed for top firms like Brunet, Meunié et Cie., and Tassinari et Châtel. His rugs decorated the Grand Salon and Music Room of the magnificent French Embassy at the 1925 Exhibition. Bénédictus' large pochoir designs display an imaginative geometric elaboration of fields of pure color, punctuated in places with abstract floral motifs".
The Picturalist offers you first quality, customized artwork that ships in just 4 to 7 days. This lightning service enables you to display artist original wall art on your design project, without compromise. It guarantees you can order the artwork in the size you want, in the medium you need and in the frame finish you desire, to match your project decor, almost immediately.
All The Picturalist prints are produced to the highest industry standards by a fine art printer, using fully archival Epson inkjet pigments on Hahnemühle, Canson and Legion (cotton rag) paper. Also known as giclée, this printing method exceeds digital C-prints or screen printing, producing distinct color accuracy and unparalleled detail. We only use acid-free archival mats and materials, natural wood frames and standard glass.
We also offer optional unbreakable lightweight acrylic glass. Our acrylic glass is more expensive than standard glass, and we recommend it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against 98% of UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become the new standard in framing.
Here are your options for framing your chosen archival paper artwork:
OPTIONS WITHOUT A MAT
You can frame the artwork you choose without a mat on 2 variations:
Without mat and without border or "full bleed", meaning the frame will slightly overlap the artwork by a 1/4 inch.
With a white border all around, typically a 2 inch wide white border. A great look to highlight your print.
OPTIONS WITH A MAT
If you choose to have your print with a mat, we offer thick acid free mats featuring a sharp angled edge that highlights the artwork.
With an off-white textured mat: Depending on the artwork you choose, consider using the "off-white" mat for antique prints. Makes a warmer transition for antique prints set in traditional decors.
With a thick white mat: If you desire a more contemporary and richer look, consider this one.
With a black mat: Offered only on a number of specific prints, for a dramatic contrast.
All our framed artwork comes ready with a wire to hang on your wall.
