Print Description

Hop-Frog's Revenge Hop-Frog's Revenge by James Ensor - 1898.

The bizarre scene in this meticulously crafted etching is based on a short story written in 1845 by Edgar Allan Poe, one of Ensor’s favorite authors. The story recounts the revenge of a court jester, a crippled dwarf named Hop-Frog, against an unjust king and his seven corrupt ministers. On the occasion of a masquerade ball, Hop-Frog persuades the king, who loves practical jokes, to play a trick on his guests by disguising himself and his ministers as orangutans. Ensor has depicted the story’s final scene, in which Hop-Frog arranges to have the ministers and the king chained together in a ring, hooked up to a chandelier, and hoisted above the party. Hop-Frog then uses a torch to set the eight on fire in full view of the horrified crowd. - MOMA

    Paper: Our beautiful pictures are printed on either:

    • Pearl Textured Fine Art Giclée paper - Hahnemühle Pearl (285gsm). Unless specified, all our prints are on this museum-grade paper.
    If you'd prefer a different paper, please get in touch. 
      Giclée printers use a higher quality of fade-resistant, archival, pigment-based inks. When applied to high quality archival substrates, like, for example, the Hahnemühle cotton-based, acid free Rag papers we use, this results in an unbeatable archival lifespan of up to 200 years.
