The material choices

In the product dropdown selection you can select your prefered material and size. We allow yout to choose among the following variants:

  • Canvas print: The UV printed canvas material mounted on a wood frame. Further, a printed canvas produces a cosy and warm effect. A canvas of this artwork will allow you to transform your art print into a large size artwork as you know from galleries. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is quite simple to hang your Canvas print without the help of extra wall-mounts. Because of thata canvas print is suitable for any type of wall.
  • Aluminium dibond: This is a metal print manufactured on aluminium dibond with an impressive depth. Its non-reflective surface creates a fashionable look. For your Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your artwork onto the surface of the aluminum. Colors are bright and luminous, details of the print appear crisp and clear. The direct UV print on aluminium is the most popular entry-level product and is an extremely sophisticated way to display fine art prints, as it draws attention on the whole artwork.
  • Poster (canvas material): A poster print is a printed canvas with a granular texture on the surface, that reminds the original version of the work of art. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin of approximately 2-6 cm round about the print in order to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, which is often referenced as a plexiglass print, makes the original artwork into beautiful décor and forms a distinct alternative to aluminium and canvas prints. With an acrylic glass art print sharp contrasts as well as image details become exposed due to the granular tonal gradation. Our real glass coating protects your chosen art replica against light and heat for between 40-60 years.

Legal note: We make every effort to describe our art products as closely as possible and to exhibit them visually on the respective product detail pages. Nevertheless, the tone of the printing material, as well as the imprint might diverge marginally from the presentation on your screen. Depending on the screen settings and the condition of the surface, color pigments can unfortunately not be printed as realistically as the digital version on this website. Given that all the are printed and processed by hand, there might also be slight deviations in the motif's exact position and the size.

The daughter of a leading painter in Bologna, Lavinia Fontana became the most famous woman artist of her day and much appreciated both in Rome and in Madrid by Philip II. Miniature portraits such as this one were in vogue: El Greco seems to have made a specialty of them during his years in Rome (1570–77).
