In retaliation for Samson’s single-handed decimation of their army, the Philistines bribed his lover Delilah to discover the source of his strength: his hair, uncut since birth. Samson’s hair was shorn as he lay sleeping in Delilah’s lap, draining his strength and allowing the Philistines to capture him. Honthorst intensified the inherent drama of the scene by limiting his depiction to just three closely packed figures, starkly illuminated by a single candle. The old woman’s silencing gesture involves the viewer in the action, making us complicit in Delilah’s deceit.

Which print materials can I choose?

For every fine art print we offer a range of different sizes & materials. You can select your favorite material and size between the subsequent options:

  • Canvas: The canvas print is a printed canvas stretched on a wooden frame. A canvas produces a typical effect of three dimensionality. A canvas print of your favorite work of art will let you turn your into a large work of art. A canvas print has the great advantage of being low in weight, which implies that it is easy to hang up the Canvas print without the help of any wall-mounts. Because of thatcanvas prints are suitable for any type of wall.
  • Printed acrylic glass: A glossy print on acrylic glass, which is sometimes referenced as a UV print on plexiglass, will turn your favorite original artwork into brilliant décor and makes a great alternative to aluminium or canvas prints. The work of art will be printed with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct print technology. This has the image effect of deep, vivid colors.
  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with a true effect of depth. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is your excellent start to the sophisticated world of fine art reproductions made with aluminum. For our Direct Aluminium Dibond option, we print your artwork onto the aluminium surface. The white & bright parts of the artwork shimmer with a silk gloss but without any glare. The colors are bright and luminous in the highest definition, details are clear and crisp, and the print has a a matte look you can literally feel.
  • Poster print on canvas material: The Artprinta poster is a UV printed sheet of canvas with a granular surface structure. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin 2-6cm round about the work of art to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.

Legal note: We do the best we can in order to describe our art products as precisely as possible and to showcase them visually in our shop. However, the pigments of the print materials and the printing can diverge marginally from the presentation on your monitor. Depending on your screen settings and the quality of the surface, not all color pigments will be printed as realistically as the digital version depicted here. Bearing in mind that all art prints are processed and printed by hand, there might also be slight differences in the size and exact position of the motif.
