The painting depicts an imagined scene of a ruined ancient city bathed in the nostalgic glow of twilight. The artist's detailed, almost archeological, interest in these Greek or Roman buildings is characteristic of Neoclassicism, although the composition---which plunges suddenly from the foreground into a deep valley---and dramatic lighting are typical of Romantic painting.

Possible product material choices

The product dropdown menu ofers you the opportunity to choose your individual size and material. You can choose your preferred size and material among the following preferences:

  • The poster print (canvas material): A poster print is a printed sheet of canvas paper with a slightly rough surface structure. It is optimally suited for putting your art print using a custom-made frame. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin between 2-6 cm around the print motif, which facilitates the framing.
  • Canvas: The canvas direct print is a printed cotton canvas mounted on a wood frame. The printed canvas makes a soft, comfy effect. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang the Canvas print without the use of additional wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suitable for any kind of wall.
  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond material with a true depth. The white & bright sections of the original artwork shimmer with a silk gloss, however without glare. The colors are luminous in the highest definition, the fine details appear very clear, and there’s a matte look you can literally feel.
  • Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating on top): A glossy acrylic glass print, often referenced as a UV print on plexiglass, changes the original into décor and is a good alternative option to canvas or dibond art prints. The acrylic glass protects your custom art print against sunlight and heat for decades.
