What does the curator team of the National Gallery of Art state about this 17th century artwork painted by Peter Paul Rubens? (© - by National Gallery of Art - National Gallery of Art)

Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640), one of the greatest masters of the 17th century, painted this masterpiece as a young artist in Rome. Rubens depicted a moment of high drama in this popular Greek myth that was famously recounted in Ovid's Metamorphoses (c. 8 AD). Phaeton, the Sun-god Apollo's son, had begged and begged his father to allow him to drive the Chariot of the Sun across the sky. After Apollo finally conceded, his worst fears were confirmed: the rash youth had neither the strength nor the experience to control the chariot and keep it on its regular course through the heavens. The horses bolted in an erratic pattern, so that Earth either froze because the Sun Chariot was too far away, or it was scorched by the Sun's heat. At left, the Horae, butterfly-winged female figures personifying the seasons, which represent the harmony and order of the universe, are reacting in terror as Earth below bursts into flame. Even the great astrological bands that arch through the heavens are disrupted. Outside the picture frame, Jupiter, the supreme god, has just unleashed a thunderbolt aimed at Phaeton in order to save the universe from complete destruction. As the chariot disintegrates and the horses tumble apart, Phaeton plunges to his death.

What materials can I select?

The product dropdown menu gives you the possibility to choose your favorite material and size. You can choose among the following product customization options:

  • Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating): A glossy print on acrylic glass, often referenced as a UV print on plexiglass, changes the artwork into beautiful décor. The artwork is manufactured with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct printing technology. With an acrylic glass art print contrasts plus artwork details become more identifiable due to the very fine tonal gradation of the print. The plexiglass protects your selected fine art print against sunlight and heat for many years.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): The Artprinta poster print is a printed canvas with a slight surface structure, that reminds the actual work of art. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin 2-6cm around the print motif in order to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
  • Aluminium print (aluminium dibond): Aluminium Dibond prints are metal prints with an outstanding depth. The Aluminium Dibond Print is the ideal introduction to fine art reproductions on aluminum. For the Aluminium Dibond option, we print the favorite artpiece on the surface of the white-primed aluminum. The colors are luminous in the highest definition, the fine details appear crisp and clear, and you can perceive a matte appearance of the art print surface.
  • The canvas print: A canvas print, not to be confused with a real painting on a canvas, is an image applied onto cotton canvas. It has the special impression of three dimensionality. A canvas of your favorite masterpiece will give you the chance to turn your personal into a large collection piece like you would see in a gallery. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which means that it is easy to hang your Canvas print without any wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suited for all kinds of walls.
