Inspiration
This artwork was inspired by Boudicca, ancient warrior Queen of the Celtic Iceni tribe, an important British cultural folk hero. Her name is derived from the word victorious, she led a rebellion to fight the Roman army.

Technique
Queen Boudicca Study In Blue XS was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture and hand drawn illustrations of a horse head and ancient torque.

After coating the handmade paper with light-sensitive chemistry, it is left to dry in a dark room. The large scale negative is then contact printed onto the paper by exposing to daylight (UV rays). The print is then processed by thoroughly washing in water to remove any unexposed solution. It can then be hung to dry, developing to full density Prussian blue after 24 hours.

Dimensions
Unframed:  100mm diameter
Framed:      145mm diameter x 30mm frame depth x 11mm frame face

Paper
Handmade recycled cotton rag paper: 
150gsm / 100% Cotton Rag / Recycled / Acid Free / PH Neutral / Medium Rough

Mount
We use float mounting for all of our framed cyanotypes. The artwork floats above a snow-white mount board, showcasing the paper texture and deckled edging.

Framing
Framed artwork will arrive ready to hang.

Each frame is handmade by our London based design team. They prime and sand the wooden frame before spraying black or white soft-sheen paint to achieve the highest quality finish. All frames come with gallery spec, 3mm thick anti-reflective/ UV glazing as standard. 

If you would like a bespoke frame, please get in touch to discuss alternative colours, gilding and glazing options.
