Product story

Madame is one half of a pair of fictionalised portraits of fantastical artists created by Hampson. They have their origins in a larger family of anachronistic figures entitled ‘Keepers of the creative muse [the also paint caves]’. Madame and Monsieur are the first etchings Hampson has produced from this set of characters. They have been created by merging digital and autographic drawings and processed through solar plate etching plates that are then inked by hand in single colours and then embossed. Although a committed printmaker and painter since his graduation from the Royal College of Art in 1992, Hampson considers Madame and Monsieur to be the first true etchings he has professionally published.



All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.
