DHM set to Release Second Charlie Brown Print by Nicolas Delort
After the hugely successful "It's a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," Nicolas is again tackling Peanuts for Dark Hall Mansion with "A Charlie Brown Christmas."[caption id="attachment_8258" align="aligncenter" width="543"] Standard Edition[/caption]
When we were covering Delort's last piece, we said that it may be his finest work to date. Well, he may have already topped himself here. When compared to "The Great Pumpkin,"the black and white in the standard edition fits more with the colors of Christmas -- namely, the lights and snow -- and the blue titles provide perfect contrast.[caption id="attachment_8259" align="aligncenter" width="553"] Variant Edition[/caption]
As for the variant, the blue is the perfect color choice, as it accurately conveys a cold winter night. The little red ornament behind Charlie is also a small detail that goes a long way because the vibrancy of the red pops against the piece's predominately muted tones. Additionally, there will once again be a foil variant of the print, which retains the colors of the regular -- with the exception of the red ornament it adopts from the variant -- but does not include the title block.
Drop Details: These will all go on sale Tuesday, November 25th, at a random time between 12:30-3:00 PM EST on DHM's site. All prints will be hand numbered and measure 18x24. The Regular is an edition of 375 and will cost $65; the Variant Edition has a run of 80 and will cost $100; and the FOIL Edition is out of only 30 and will cost $150. To all those going for these, good luck!
