Description

L'INCONNUE DE LA SEINE/DIE UNBEKANNTE AUS DER SEINE/THE UNKNOWN WOMAN OF THE SEINE: Who was L'Inconnue de la Seine? According to legend, she was a young country girl who committed suicide by throwing herself into the Seine in Paris. She was fished out the river and brought to the morgue where a young doctor, moved by her quiet beauty and enigmatic smile, made a death mask of her face. Some say he was driven mad by love for her and later threw himself into the Seine to finally meet her in its watery embrace. Others say the story is pure myth. L'Inconnue de la Seine was made from the living face of a German mask maker's teenage daughter and he grew rich selling copies of the mask which hung on the walls of every true and wanna-be European artist and poet at the beginning of the 20th century. No one knows for sure. What is known is that this mask has inspired generations of artists and writers from Rilke to Nabokov to Camus to Man Ray. Personally I think she is a Siren. Look at her image long enough and you will hear her song. I promise it will seduce you.

You will receive one unframed and unmatted photograph that has been printed at a professional photo lab on archival paper. The photograph is also signed and dated on the back.

Please choose a print in the following sizes:

10x15 cm/3.5x5 inches
13x18 cm/5x7 inches
20x30 cm/8x12 inches

Small variations in size may occur depending on the print.

You can also choose between the following finishes:

Glossy
Matte
Silk (a matte finish with a slight texture which is more scratch resistant)
Metallic Pearl (a glossy finish with a somewhat metallic shimmer to it)

I personally prefer a silk finish for the photographs because if its hardiness and beautiful texture.


Item ships 3 to 4 business days after ordering.
