"Sacrifice "

Robert Sherman uses a story from the Bible to explore the emotion of making a difficult choice. Abraham had to make a painful decision. If he followed God’s command, he would have to give up what he loved most on earth. In the painting we see Abraham gathering wood, preparing to sacrifice his beloved son. The pathos of this moment is captured in Abraham’s face. But the golden sky seems to foretell of the joy he will later feel. He passed God’s test of his devotion, and in the end Abraham did not have to carry out the sacrifice.

What is a Giclée?

Robert Sherman’s fine art limited editions are museum quality. The type of print is called a Giclée (pronounced zhee-clay), which is a fine art digital print created with a high resolution Iris Printer.

Iris Giclées have an impressive exhibition record with museums and galleries throughout the world, including the Metropolitan Museum (New York), The Los Angeles County Museum and The British Art Museum.

Robert Sherman works with one of the most respected fine art printmakers to create his fine art limited editions. Only the best quality materials are used, including the most archival (life preserving) water-based organic inks available in the world. Each print receives a UV and light retardant coating to further protect the art.

Our Deluxe Edition Giclée is printed on artist cotton canvas, and each Giclée is varnished for moisture protection. Our Paper Edition Giclée is printed on heavy Somerset Velvet 100% cotton paper which is archival and acid free.

You will receive a Certificate of Authenticity for each Giclée. We have taken the utmost care to provide you with a beautiful, high quality work of art. We hope you will enjoy your fine art limited edition by Robert Sherman!
