El Gran Fandango

Francisco Franco Studios

 

"El Gran Fandango" was inspired by a 1910 zinc etching by Jose Guadalupe Posada. The painting you see here was originally a large scale mural painted by renown artist Francisco Franco and was done in the dance-of-death and 'memento mori traditions (skulls and death-goddesses are common in pre-Columbian art) and the Spanish heritage. 

This is a giclee (zhee-klay) print, an individually produced, high-resolution, high-fidelity, high tech reproduction done on a special large format printer. Giclees are produced from digital scans of existing artwork.

The prints are printed with ultra-chrome inks on archival canvas, sealed with ArchivaCoat Gloss, a water based liquid coating designed to enhance the durability and increase the lifespan of printed images. The canvas is then finished with a museum wrap; a finishing technique for artwork mounted on stretchers. The canvas fabric is wrapped and mounted onto wooden stretcher bars with no visible staples on the edge of the frame, leaving a clean professional look. No framing is necessary.

The prints are all done in house at Francisco Franco Studios. All prints are personally signed by the artist and come with a certificate of authenticity.
