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

  • Metal (aluminium dibond print): Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an outstanding depth, creating a modern impression with a surface structure, which is non-reflective. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is your perfect start to art prints manufactured with aluminum. For our Aluminium Dibond option, we print the selected artwork onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum. The bright and white parts of the work of art shimmer with a silky gloss but without the glare. The colors are luminous, the fine details are clear and crisp.
  • Print on glossy acrylic glass (with real glass coating): A glossy acrylic glass print, which is often denoted as a UV print on plexiglass, changes your chosen original artwork into wall decoration and makes a great alternative to canvas and aluminidum dibond fine art prints. The real glass coating protects your selected fine art print against light and heat for decades.
  • Canvas print: The printed canvas material mounted on a wood stretcher frame. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is easy and straightforward to hang up your Canvas print without the help of any wall-mounts. Because of thata canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
  • Poster on canvas material: A poster print is a printed sheet of cotton canvas with a slight texture on the surface. Please note, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin 2 - 6cm around the artwork to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.

In an 1876 review, a sarcastic critic referred to participants in the second Impressionist exhibition as "five or six lunatics—among them a woman—a group of unfortunate creatures." Berthe Morisot is the woman to whom he alluded. Morisot, an original member of the group, showed in seven of its eight exhibitions and contributed financially to sustain the impressionist movement. The Mother and Sister of the Artist, one of Morisot's largest works, was exhibited at the Salon of 1870 and perhaps again in 1874 at the first Impressionist exhibition.

The painting, a family portrait and an intimate domestic genre scene, was begun when Morisot's sister Edma Pontillon stayed with her family in the winter of 1869–1870 to await the birth of her first child, a pregnancy discreetly disguised by Edma's loose white morning robe. Anxious about sending the painting to the Salon, Morisot solicited Manet's advice, and on the last day for submissions he visited the Morisot home. Morisot's correspondence reveals that, rather than offer verbal suggestions, Manet extensively repainted the figure of the artist's mother. Manet's suave shorthand, seen in the mother's features and black dress, differs obviously from the nervous refinement of Morisot's touch in her sister's features, the floral upholstery, and the reflections in the mirror over Edma's head.
