This portrait features a young man, known to his friends as Albert VII, the former ruling Archduke of Austria in 1619. Some would say he looks very handsome, which is why we have taken the opportunity to scribble "Bona Vardering" all over the artwork. This phrase is from the old slang tongue known as Polari and it means "good looking" or "attractive".

      Polari was a form of British cant slang used until the 1960's. Utilised mainly in gay sub culture, it provided a way to allow subjects and people to be discussed aloud without being understood.

      The artwork is Giclée printed on high quality matt 308gsm Hahnemuhle Photorag cotton rag paper. Seriously, the printing and paper quality is out of this world.

      This paper print is not supplied with a frame, although we do offer that and a canvas print option via the links above. All prints have a small translucent original artwork credit on the bottom right of image with no other branding or jibber-jabber present.
