The Meeting on the Turret Stairs by Frederick William Burton (1816-1900), in a Private Collection. A stunning, framed replica on artists’ grade canvas. Forsaken passion trembles from this riveting work by Burton. This richly detailed piece is an illustration of forbidden love from the Danish ballad of Hellelil and Hildebrand, Prince of Engellend. Our authentic stretched canvas replica captures the original painting’s texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand. Our imported, antique scrollwork-embellished, high-quality frame includes a solid brass museum plate etched with the title and artist’s name.
