I have "The Raft of the Medusa" (still in the box) - when I got it and rolled it out, I was vaguely disappointed, but couldn't really verbalize why. Now I see why - it's not the image I ordered! There are truly significant, and in my opinion detrimental, detail and color differences between the painting and serigraph. That's a problem.

Is it really all that technically difficult to accurately reproduce the painting? Shouldn't we expect better? I mean, this isn't exactly a $20 print from WalMart. . .

Wow ...I didn't realize HOW different the print was from the painting until now , after viewing Gromit's side by side pics . No WONDER you were disappointed .

Shagcorps really should do something about all the painting images being used on Shagmart and on gallery sites to sell prints which are usually significantly different . Must be more happily unaware buyers like Koolau who end up not totally pleased . The print is cool in its own right , but pales in comparison to the painting .
