Briseis – prize of Achilles – original digital print


Briseis – prize of Achilles – from the War Music series – affordable original art prints in limited edition of 70. Original art from Ian Bertram – Artist


Briseis – prize of Achilles is a new digital print, one of a series.  The series name comes from Christopher Logue’s ‘War Music’ poem sequence, which retells Homer’s Iliad. There is no literal link, the titles just seem to ‘fit’ the images.

My aim with this and the other digital images I am adding soon, is to provide original art at an affordable price. The process that I use, takes data from existing images, but the final product is entirely new. These are genuine originals, not reproductions. There is no pre-existing image in another medium. This blog post explains more.

Each print is 27 cm x 27 cm (about 10.5″) on 30 cm x 30 cm sheets. I print to order using light fast pigment inks on 285 gsm archival quality matt paper, then sign and number each one. The edition size is 70. Every print in the ‘War Music’ series is the same size to ensure consistency when grouped together.

Frames or mats shown in the listing are for illustration only. You have several options when buying.

  • Unframed and unmounted, shipped flat in sturdy protective packaging.
  • Unframed, but in a mat. Matted prints come packed with a backing board ready to drop into a standard size, 50 cm x 50 cm frame, or for you to take to your local framer. The mat colour is antique white. (Base price + £10)
  • Framed and in a mat. This has a simple black moulding with acrylic glazing to reduce weight and for safety in shipping. To keep to an affordable price, the frame will be commercially produced, not hand made. This option also incurs higher shipping costs.(Base price + £35)
