Moreover, it makes a good alternative option to canvas and aluminidum dibond fine art prints. Your artwork is manufactured with the help of modern UV direct print machines. This makes sharp and rich colors. The major advantage of a plexiglass fine art print is that contrasts as well as image details become recognizeable with the help of the fine tonal gradation.

A canvas print has the advantage of being relatively low in weight. That means, it is quite simple to hang the Canvas print without the use of extra wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for any kind of wall.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): The poster is a printed sheet of canvas with a fine surface structure. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin of something between 2 - 6cm around the painting to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with a true depth.

The compositional system of "Venus and Cupid" is a painting back the same content of Nicholas Knüpfer that originated from the English collection Cook and was auctioned at Sotheby's London of 2008. Since the image of the Kremser Schmidt reversed created against the model, the conclusion is obvious that the artist has used a reproduction of graphics for its interpretation of the theme.
