It was one of the few moments in her brief and troubled life that it was sweet to treasure. Weaving a rose garland as a present for her beloved master Glaucus, the blind servant Nydia resists speaking of her love for him. The scene is based on Sir Edward Bulwer-Lytton's enormously popular historical novel The Last Days of Pompeii (published in 1835), a melodramatic epic set in ancient Roman times, which culminates with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Responding to the 19th-century appetite for things antique, the artist filled his historical scenes with depictions of Roman frescoes and statuary. Dutch by birth, Alma-Tadema made this picture in Brussels for a London art dealer. But the demand for such paintings became so great that he moved to England, where he achieved great financial and social success.

Choose your desired product material

For every art print we offer different sizes & materials. The following options are available for individualization:

  • Canvas: The printed canvas, not to be confused with an artwork painted on a canvas, is an image printed onto cotton canvas. Furthermore, a canvas makes a familiar and comfortable feeling. Your canvas print of your favorite artpiece will provide you with the unique chance to transform your very own art print into a large size collection piece as you know from art galleries. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which means that it is easy to hang the Canvas print without any wall-mounts. Because of thata canvas print is suited for all types of walls.
  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with a true depth effect - for a modern impression and non-reflective surface structure. For your Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your artwork right onto the aluminium composite surface. The bright parts of the artwork shimmer with a silk gloss but without the glare. Colors are vivid and luminous, the fine details of the print are very clear.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): The Artprinta poster print is a printed sheet of flat canvas paper with a slight structure on the surface. It is perfectly qualified for putting your art print in a personal frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin of something between 2 - 6cm around the artwork in order to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Print on acrylic glass: The print on acrylic glass, often referenced as a fine art print on plexiglass, will transform your selected artwork into beautiful décor and makes a great alternative to dibond or canvas prints. The great advantage of a plexiglass fine art copy is that contrasts and small details will be more visible with the help of the very subtle tonal gradation of the picture. Our plexiglass protects your selected art replica against sunlight and heat for several decades.
