Tete de Veau – 8″ x 10″ signed digital Giclee print from original artwork – sketch from Parisian Butcher Shop
6 in stock
This sketch was made the first time I visited a butcher shop in Paris – as an American, I’d been sheltered from the nose-to-tail eating habits of Parisians (at the time, it was less common here – but I still have yet to see a calf’s head in an American butcher shop)! I was completely fascinated by the display case, and asked to stand and sketch – the amused butchers went to the back to bring out all sorts of offal to share 🙂
This is a giclée print* of that original pen-and-ink and gouache sketch, scanned. The paper size is 8.5″ x 11″; the centered image has a large white border around it for framing (larger than in the photo).

It’s printed with archival inks on rich archival paper – most likely Hahnemuhle William Turner, Arches or PremierArt – all wonderful, long-lasting, museum-worthy paper stocks. This paper/ink combination is rated by Wilhem Imaging Research to last 200 years in dark storage or 75 years under glass – so it’s gonna last!
A note on color: I carefully match my prints to the digital version. However, due to variations in computer monitors, the colors you see on your screen may look slightly different from the printed version.
This is a signed open edition. The print comes to you unmatted, in a cello sleeve with flawboard backing. To ensure it reaches you safely, I’ll ship it in a rigid fiberboard mailer, with delivery confirmation.

*giclée is a fancy term for an archival inkjet print! More detail from Wikipedia: Giclée, commonly pronounced “zhee-clay,” is a generic term for the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The term, from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt, to spray”, originally applied to fine art prints created on Iris printers in a process invented in the early 1990s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print.
