The artwork will be manufactured with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct print technology. The great benefit of a plexiglass art print is that contrasts as well as artwork details will be more identifiable due to the subtle tonal gradation of the print.

For your Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print the chosen artpiece right on the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite. The white & bright parts of the original work of art shimmer with a silky gloss, however without any glow. Colors are bright and luminous, fine details are crisp. The print on Aluminum Dibond is one of the most demanded entry-level products and is a contemporary way to display fine art prints, as it puts 100% of the viewer’s focus on the whole artwork.

Please note, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin between 2-6cm round about the work of art, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.

Original artwork description by The J. Paul Getty Museum (© - The J. Paul Getty Museum - The J. Paul Getty Museum)

As was customary for promising Dutch painters in the 1600s, Gerrit van Honthorst traveled to Italy to complete his artistic training. In Rome he fell under the spell of Caravaggio's revolutionary style and adopted his use of realistic figures and dramatic lighting, known as chiaroscuro. In Italy he acquired the nickname Gherardo delle Notti (Gerrit of the Nights) because he painted so many night scenes lit by candles or torches.

This recently discovered painting may have been made as an altarpiece. It shows the Crowning with Thorns, one of the last of the series of events comprising the trial of Christ. His crude features illuminated by a torch, a jeering soldier mocks Christ, who humbly accepts the soldier's derision. In the shadows, another soldier places the crown of thorns on Christ's head, using a cane to protect his own hands. At the left, two dimly lit figures, perhaps Pontius Pilate and an advisor, discuss Christ's fate.
