How do I hang a canvas print on my wall? Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang up the Canvas print without the support of any wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for all kinds of walls.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): An acrylic glass print, often referred to as a print on plexiglass, makes an original into beautiful home decoration. The great upside of a plexiglass print is that sharp contrasts and also image details become more identifiable thanks to the very fine tonal gradation in the picture.

A print poster is suited for putting your art print with the help of a special frame.

General information from the museum (© - Musée Cognacq-Jay Paris - Musée Cognacq-Jay Paris)

The plans outlined in this portrait are barely legible, but they seem however to refer to two of the main buildings executed by Ledoux for the city of Paris. On the place up, left, it is possible to distinguish the project rise office Barrier Reuilly. The right drawing, nailed to a drawing board, is probably just scribbled diagram of the Rotonde de la Villette (1786-1787).

Ledoux, Claude-Nicolas
