12 Women and 12 Men

Actually, you'll find a few images of men and women interacting in this selection as well. But the point is to look at how artists perceive (wo)mankind. We have mostly steered clear of nudes, which have historically been a major inspiration for artists, and of which you can find more in our inventory if you are so inclined. Instead, we focus on people shown as they are, not what they are. You won't find too many prints inspired by people's trade or profession. Rather, this selection focuses on leasure, quiet, portraiture, a touch of sensuality, and the simple existence of women and men in their everyday reality. We hope you enjoy it.
