Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil on Canvas.

150 (h) x 120 (w) x 4,5 cm
acrylic and oil on canvas

I often mediate on Shakespeare and his ageless dramatic scenarios. I do love his very poetic but razor-sharp, brilliant psychological consideration of the human being. Remember Macbeth. Striving for power -- political, financial, intellectual, sexual -- ruled, rules and will rule the world. We aren't more than a stone's throw away from former generations and centuries and from Scotland in the summer of 1057 (the death of king Macbeth).

Macbeth to Lady Macbeth:
"It will have blood, they say; blood will have blood."
(Shakespeare: ex Macbeth, act III scene IV)

Colours are especially inspired by the 2015 British-French-American Macbeth film adaption, directed by Justin Kurzel and starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. In Act V Macduff sets Birnham wood on fire and smoke and ashes blowing towards Macbeth's castle. Macbeth dies on the battlefield filmed in impressive orange and red camera shots.

This piece is a true LARGE-SIZED PAINTING. For a large-scale, aesthetic, finely nuanced impression on your wall and with my authentic, artistic subsurface message.

I use exclusively oil and acrylic colours, canvas and wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The painting wears my signature on the front and is signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the XL-sides (about 4,5 cm wide) are not part of the painting and show the black-painted canvas (beautiful contrast). The painting is ready to hang (on the backside: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and doesn’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. The piece will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter.

Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only. If you have any questions about this painting or any other piece, feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work.

Warm wishes,





Christian Bahr
