The painting was inspired by Shakespeare’s Sonnet 59.
“If there be nothing new, but that which is
Hath been before, how are our brains beguiled,
Which, labouring for invention, bear amiss
The second burden of a former child!
O, that record could with a backward look,
Even of five hundred courses of the sun,
Show me your image in some antique book,
Since mind at first in character was done!
That I might see what the old world could say
To this composed wonder of your frame;
Whether we are mended, or whether better they,
Or whether revolution be the same.
O, sure I am, the wits of former days
To subjects worse have given admiring praise.”

How long will my fine art purchase take to arrive?
The timeframes can vary. We will update you with the relevant information as soon as possible. The packages will be tracked.
Will my purchase look the same as the online image?
All works are reproduced as accurately as possible; however, a slight variation may occur between our website due to computer picture resolution and individual monitor settings on your computer screen, mobile device or tablet.
What should I do when receiving my purchase?
All items and packaging need to be inspected by the client within 48 hours of delivery and any concerns addressed in writing within this timeframe.
What about custom duties and taxes for international orders?
Items shipped internationally can be subject to customs duties and sales or Value Added Tax (VAT) set by the destination country. These fees are not calculated prior to customs clearance in that country and are in addition to the price and shipping cost you are charged when checking out. (VAT is typically included in the price of an item. If the seller says it isn’t included, we recommend you contact the local customs agency to verify the import charges.) To complete your purchase, you are required to acknowledge that any customs duties and taxes that apply are your responsibility.
