Arketex has decided to work with the photo agency of the French Réunion des Musées Nationaux and the Grand Palais museum,
which are supervised by the Ministry for Culture, officially in charge of exploiting and diffusing the collections of the national museums in France.
For over 60 years, the agency has been carrying out campaigns where it takes photographs inside the most prestigious
national museums, such as the Louvreor the Orsay museum, in order to conserve images
of works for future generations and also for their use as part of exceptional projects,
such as the creation of Arketex architectural decorations for businesses and private individuals alike.
Seascapes and images of the open country or mountains are all topped by the sky, which is sometimes tormented, sometimes cheerful, ever an invitation to dream. When used as decoration, landscapes bring strength and serenity to a room.
We are as familiar with masterpieces as we are with the characters that they depict. When incorporated into a room in an oversized version, they make a powerful statement. Viewed on an XXL print, each detail becomes an element in the scheme, and gives a contemporary dimension.
Each photograph is organised under the control of curators. Thus, every image is as close to reality as possible, and protects the integrity of the work reproduced, particularly its colours.
The images are collected with high-definition digital photography that follows an absolute requirement, being as close to the original work as possible. The size of the files produced by the photography agency ranges from 100 MB to 1 GB for the most complex montages that allow exceptional enlargements so as to only use part of the work while making the decoration.
Everyone knows Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, a series of 250 oil paintings. For over 30 years, the painter turned his attention to painting the pond and garden of his property in Giverny, from different angles and in different lights. The best known are the famous panoramic paintings that can measure up to 17 m, which are on display in the Orangery Museum in the Tuileries garden in Paris.
In high-definition prints for your walls or ceilings, they will reveal the depth and work of the master painter, who was a founder of the impressionist movement.
Art over the ages has left us a legacy of extraordinary frescoes painted on the ceilings and domes of the most iconic buildings of the nation. When used to create a printed ceiling for contemporary interiors, these add exceptional originality and charm to the decoration of a room.
