Inspiration
This artwork was inspired by the beloved Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne. Together they took literary conventions of the Victorian period and radically reshaped them, pushing back at the limits of the world. 

These subversive sisters' stories transcend their time and still resonate with modern audiences of all ages.

Technique
Portrait Of The Three Sisters was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture, and a photogram from an antique microscopic slide of TB cells, combined with surface textures of a chemigram creating the planetary orb.

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:  390mm x 640mm
Framed:      480mm x 760mm x 35mm (Framed Depth) 

Paper
Handmade recycled cotton rag paper: 
320gsm / 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

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.
