The quality of a Giclée fine art print may be generally reckoned from the weight, and therefore, thickness, of the printing paper that is used. That is, the heavier, weightier the printing paper that is used, the better the likely quality. Weight of paper is measured in ‘Grams per Square Metre’ or ‘gsm’ for short. So, without further ado.

вЂњThe Hay WainвЂќ failed to sell when it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1821, but it caused a sensation when it was shown at the Paris Salon three years later. The great French Romantic painter EugГЁne Delacroix expressed his admiration for the painting, and even the French government was interested in its acquisition.

In The Hay Wain John Constable chose to paint a rural landscape which runs into the distance in sun-drenched meadows, offset by the cool waters of the pool in the foreground. The theme of this painting is very much rural life and the beauty of the landscape which the artist loved so much.
Complete and perfect beauty- something that could only be created in a mythical or biblical world – was popular during Constable’s time. The artist painted nature as it was, and his work was a breath of fresh air in an art world full of over-dramatic and stylized landscapes.
