Artists' print : And Zarafa Kept Walking
And Zarafa Kept Walking
Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, 2013.
Four-colour lithographic offset print on Fabriano Artistico 300gsm traditional white hot-press paper.
Featuring Zarafa, the first giraffe to be seen in France (in the year 1826), she inspired tall hairstyles à la girafe, and Honoré de Balzac to write a story about her. An exotic gift as political ploy from Muhammad Ali of Egypt to King Charles X, she walked from Marseilles to Paris to the delight of many onlookers, carrying with her perhaps a few feathered friends.
Individual prints are sold unframed.
The companion print to And Zarafa Kept Walking is Turning the Tables on Alfred Court.
All prints come wrapped in an envelope with cardboard insert to ensure arrival of a smooth and flat print to your door.
