For every product we offer a range of different sizes & materials. You can choose among the following product customization options:

  • Canvas print: The printed canvas, not to be mistaken with an artwork painted on a canvas, is an image printed from an industrial printer. A canvas creates the distinctive effect of three dimensionality. A canvas print has the advantage of being low in weight, which means that it is easy and straightforward to hang up your Canvas print without the use of extra wall-mounts. Because of thatcanvas prints are suited for all types of walls.
  • Print on acrylic glass (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, often described as a plexiglass print, will turn your favorite artwork into décor. The great advantage of an acrylic glass fine art print is that contrasts and granular color details become visible thanks to the granular gradation.
  • Poster print (canvas material): The Artprinta poster is a printed sheet of canvas with a slightly rough surface texture. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin of approximately 2-6 cm round about the work of art, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a print material with an outstanding depth effect. A non-reflective surface structure creates a contemporary look. For your Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print the selected artpiece right onto the surface of the aluminum composite. The colors are luminous, fine details are clear and crisp.

Legal disclaimer: We try everythig possible to depict the products as accurate as possible and to demonstrate them visually on the product detail pages. However, the pigments of the print materials, as well as the imprint may diverge marginally from the presentation on your screen. Depending on your screen settings and the condition of the surface, not all colors can be printed 100% realistically. In view of the fact that all are processed and printed by hand, there might also be minor discrepancies in the motif's exact position and the size.

Related text: Animalier and Satirist. His Majesty Receives is typical of the artist’s blend of humorous fantasy with satirical undertones. Beard wrote a book entitled Humor in Animals (1885), in which he “quotes” the fox describing his species as having a brutal sort of humor, which is brought on by its need to hunt and kill in order to survive. In this canvas, the fox, swaggering in a royal robe, intimidates a rabbit, while other rabbits and squirrels dressed like portly businessmen, look on. Beard’s painting may lampoon an episode of American political or social history, though its specific reference is not known.
