Memento Mori


Memento Mori – is a Latin phrase roughly translated as “Remember you are mortal.” It is a common motif in my own paintings as well as being an entire genre of Renaissance painters – often the masters would include a skull or skeleton juxtaposed with a beautiful maiden to act as a memento mori. Not only being a reminder of mortality, it can also be considered along the lines of “Eat, Drink and Be Merry – For Tomorrow We May Die” – “Seize the Day” type of idea. **PLEASE NOTE: The original painting was oddly shaped and on wood, so I’ve put this print image on a solid rectangular background – so this way it would look great framed or matted in a standard frame OR custom matted. The open edition prints are on a white background as shown, the CANVAS prints are on a BLACK background (not shown). These prints are NOT FRAMED – the picture of the original frame is in the printed image on the print itself.

Open Edition Canvas Prints

These prints are made on canvas with archival inks and varnished with a UV resistant finish. They are gallery-wrap style — wrapped on boards, stretched over a frame and are shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. We only release these open edition canvases once Limited Edition Hand-Embellished Canvases have been sold out. The open edition canvases are on deep gallery wrapped boards. The Open Editions are set to a specific size format and there may be some cropping around the edges from the original artwork. NOTE: The watermark in the image is only for digital display and does not appear in the originals or prints.
