For every product we offer a range of different materials & sizes. The following sizes and materials are the options we offer you for individualization:

  • Aluminium dibond: This is a metal print made on aluminium dibond material with a true effect of depth, which creates a fashionable impression thanks to a surface structure, which is non-reflective. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is the perfect introduction to art replicas with aluminum.
  • The poster print (canvas material): Our poster print is a UV printed canvas paper with a nice texture on the surface. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of approximately 2-6cm round about the work of art, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • The acrylic glass print (with real glass coating on top): The print on acrylic glass, which is sometimes described as a plexiglass print, will turn your favorite artwork into amazing décor and offers a distinct alternative option to canvas or dibond art prints. The great upside of a plexiglass fine art copy is that contrasts as well as painting details become identifiable with the help of the very subtle tonal gradation. The acrylic glass protects your selected fine art print against light and heat for many decades.
  • Canvas print: A printed canvas mounted on a wood stretcher frame. A printed canvas of your favorite work of art will give you the opportunity of turning your art print into a large size work of art like you know from art galleries. Hanging your canvas print: Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is easy and straightforward to hang your Canvas print without the help of extra wall-mounts. Because of thatcanvas prints are suitable for all kinds of walls.

The scene is taken from literature, specifically the poem Cupid Stealing Honey by the classical Greek poet Theocritus.

The story behind the painting The poem tells the story of how Cupid complains to his mother, Venus (the goddess of love), of how the bees sting him because he has stolen their hive. He wonders that creatures so small can inflict so much pain. Venus laughs and tells him that their stings can be compared to the wounds that he himself inflicts on all those hit by his arrows. The brief ecstasy of love may soon be replaced by suffering and heartbreak. A sign in the top left corner refers to Theocritus’ poem.

The painting's affiliation with Philipp Melanchton Seen in the light of the fact that Cranach did illustrations for Luther’s version of the Bible and was closely associated with the inner circle of the Reformation, it is interesting that the poem was published in the name of Philipp Melanchton. Melanchton devised his own version of the teachings of Luther and founded Philippism, a movement that came to be of great importance in Denmark.

The painting was in 1759 transferred from the Kunstkammer at Gottorp Castle to the Royal Collection together with other works, making it the largest Cranach collection outside German-speaking countries.
