A canvas print is suitable for all kinds of walls.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, often denoted as a plexiglass print, will turn your favorite original work of art into lovely décor. Our plexiglass protects your selected art replica against light and heat for up to 6 decades.
  • Poster print (canvas material): Our poster is a UV printed cotton canvas paper with a slight structure on the surface. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin between 2 - 6cm round about the print motif, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond print: Aluminium Dibond prints are metal prints with an impressive depth. A non-reflective surface structure creates a contemporary impression. A direct Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the excellent start to art prints produced on aluminum.

Fixing the viewer with a dreamy gaze, the fair-haired Telemachus grasps Eucharis's thigh with his right hand while holding his sword upright with the other. In the 1699 French novel Les Aventures de Télémaque, loosely based on characters from the Odyssey, the author Fénelon describes how Telemachus, the son of Odysseus, fell passionately in love with the beautiful nymph Eucharis. His duty as a son, however, required that he end their romance and depart in search of his missing father.

The ill-fated lovers say farewell in a grotto on Calypso's island. Facing towards us, Telemachus's blue tunic falls open to reveal his naked torso. Eucharis, seen in profile, encircles Telemachus's neck and gently rests her head upon his shoulder in resignation. In this way, Jacques-Louis David contrasts masculine rectitude with female emotion.

David painted The Farewell of Telemachus and Eucharis during his exile in Brussels. The use of saturated reds and blues contrasted with flesh tones and combined with a clarity of line and form typifies the Neoclassical style, which is characteristic of David's late history paintings.
