Gustave Flaubert


SKU: N/A Category:


Get inspired by one of the greatest novels of all time with a cotton canvas wall art. This piece is printed with a quote from Madame Bovary (1857) by Gustave Flaubert, beautifully reproduced on canvas with our artist-grade cotton substrate for outstanding clarity and detail.

The novel is about a provincial wife, Emma Bovary, who is trapped in a monotonous routine of a dull marriage while she imagines herself to another world by reading romantic novels. The quote is derived from Part II, chapter 4, wherein Emma ruminates about love that she believes does not develop gradually, but in an instant.

For the main graphic, we used Les amants de torquate (1921) fashion plate by Charles Martin, a drawing of two lovers under the moonlight. This illustration perfectly captures the romanticized idealism of Emma Bovary on the nature of love that comes suddenly and without hesitancy.

This 100% cotton canvas is built with a patented solid support face and closed back, printed with high image quality and detail. Give your home a literary touch with this canvas wall art—you deserve to be surrounded by these words of wisdom!
