Title: Das Mädchen (The Girl), 2014
Type: fine art print
Size: 35.5 x 30 cm / 14" x 11.8"

'Das Mädchen' (German for: the girl) was inspired by The Little Match Girl, a fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen.

The story's about a poor little girl selling matches on the street. It's cold and she's barefoot and nobody bought any of her matches. She's afraid to go home empty-handed so she starts lighting the matches to keep warm. When she looks at the flames, she sees beautiful visions. But, after the last match has burnt up, she dies and is reunited with the spirit of her deceased grandmother.

In this painting, I wanted her to fill the page, my aim was to make her be noticed. Her dress and her hair are bright, alarming colors. Colors you can't overlook. Her surroundings, though, are dark and empty. It's already too late.

'Das Mädchen' has a quiet beauty, it invites thought and reflection. Invest in this work of art and allow it to guide you to unknown places.

I work in close collaboration with one printing facility in Munich. Our goal is to produce high quality reproductions which you can enjoy for many years to come.

This series of reproductions is a small edition of just 15 prints. The prints have been made with beautiful firm paper, leaving a narrow white border for framing. Each piece has been signed, numbered and dated on the back.

The print will shipped flat in secure packaging to prevent from bending. Orders outside of Europe will be sent with a track and trace service.

In the rare event that your package is delayed, please send me an email and I'll contact the postal services for you.
