Dream Image by Charles Blackman
‘Dream Image’ is a miraculous visual conception of (wife) Barbara’s experience.
When Barbara was hospitalised with "first motherhood" in 1957, she began to knit her own bedspread. Each brilliantly coloured woollen square was a badge of her achievements and a visual feast against failing eyesight and immobility. Beneath the chequered cover she was safe in the womb of her own dream, away from the turmoil of the outside world.
Overall paper size 88 x 92 cm image size 72 x 80 cm.
A hand signed limited edition print from the master. Due to his frail condition Charles has initialed each print, which is blind embossed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Blackman publisher. Proceeds from each sale contribute to support for the artist.
120 x 100 cm external framed size approx.
The below price options allow us to frame this valuable art print with conservation standards.
It includes acid free backing and 2 acid free white mats (cardboard surround) and for aesthetic reasons we separate the 2 mats with a hidden 3mm spacer which casts a light shadow and enhances the overall appearance.
The frame is a "gallery" look, 2 cm wide face on and 4 cm deep. We offer break proof perspex as an option for non Melbourne metro deliveries, otherwise glass is fine.
Prices below include the art print.
We can frame the work in any way you choose if you come to our picture framing showroom. A less expensive option is to frame without any mats and this would cost (including the art print) $2850- or $2940- with perspex. Please call 03 9576 1566 or e mail for framing advice.
