Order your favorite product material

We offer a range of various sizes and materials for every product. We allow you to pick your favorite size and material among the following product individualization options:

  • Printed acrylic glass: An acrylic glass print, often denoted as a plexiglass print, will transform your original artwork into beautiful décor. What is more, the acrylic fine art print forms a distinct alternative to aluminium or canvas art prints. Your artwork is custom-made with the help of modern UV printing machines. With an acrylic glass fine art print contrasts and granular painting details become identifiable with the help of the subtle tonal gradation of the print.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a print material with a true depth. The non-reflective surface make a modern look. The Aluminium Dibond Print is your perfect introduction to fine art prints on aluminum. For your Direct Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print the favorite work of art on the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite. The white and bright components of the original artwork shine with a silk gloss but without any glare. The colors of the print are bright and vivid in the highest definition, details of the print appear crisp, and you can really notice a matte appearance of the art print surface.
  • Printed poster on canvas material: The poster print is a UV printed sheet of cotton canvas paper with a fine surface structure, that reminds the actual version of the work of art. It is perfectly suited for placing your fine art print with the help of a custom frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin 2-6cm around the painting, which facilitates the framing.
  • Canvas: The UV printed canvas material applied on a wooden stretcher frame. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang your Canvas print without the support of additional wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for all types of walls.

Original information about the artwork from The J. Paul Getty Museum (© - The J. Paul Getty Museum -

Smiling, singing figures gather around a balcony to play musical instruments, inviting the viewers below to join in the fun. The revelers' facial expressions and bright colorful clothes heighten the festive, carefree mood. A parrot and a dog, gazing down from their perches, round out the merry group. Possibly part of an allegory of Harmony, the painting may have originally been slightly wider and twice as long, containing a complete balustrade and more figures. The head of the man at the top is a modern addition.

Gerrit van Honthorst painted this illusionistic ceiling, the earliest of its type made in the Netherlands in 1622, two years after his return from Italy, where he saw similar painted ceilings. Careful calculation of perspective allows the figures to burst plausibly through the flat plane of the painted panel.
