Please bear in mind, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin 2-6cm round about the artwork, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • The canvas print: The printed canvas, not to be confused with a painting on a canvas, is a digital copy printed onto cotton canvas fabric. Further, a canvas generates a familiar and pleasant effect. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which means that it is quite simple to hang up the Canvas print without the support of additional wall-mounts. That is why, canvas prints are suitable for all types of walls.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a material with a true depth. A non-reflective surface make a contemporary look. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is the excellent introduction to the sophisticated world of art replicas on aluminum. For your Aluminium Dibond option, we print your work of art onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum material.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, which is often named as a print on plexiglass, will convert the original work of art into brilliant décor. Our acrylic glass protects your selected fine art print against sunlight and external influences for decades.

Disclaimer: We do all that we can in order to depict our products as precisely as possible and to exhibit them visually in our shop.

What does the original description of the Art Institute Chicago write about this work of art created by Jacques Louis David? (© - by Art Institute Chicago - www.artic.edu)

The volatile events of the early years of the French Revolution make it impossible to determine with certainty the date of Jacques-Louis David’s warm, fresh portrait of Adélaïde de Pastoret. They also probably account for the portrait’s unfinished state. David, a renowned Neoclassical painter, was at the time an ardent revolutionary; Madame de Pastoret was the wife of a staunch royalist. The sittings must have occurred after the birth, early in 1791, of her son, who is portrayed asleep by her side, and before her brief imprisonment during the Reign of Terror in 1792. Here David completed the stippled, almost monochromatic underpainting but did not create the stark, enamel-smooth surface that is characteristic of his finished paintings. He did not even get far enough to place a needle and thread in Madame de Pastoret’s hand. Nevertheless, this large portrait of unaffected domesticity captures the youthful mother with charm as well as dignity and displays David’s skill as a portraitist. Objecting to David’s revolutionary ideals, Madame de Pastoret (who became the Marquise de Pastoret in 1817) refused the painting during the artist’s lifetime. After David’s death, she had her son, by then an adult, purchase the portrait from the artist’s estate.

This over 220 years old work of art Madame de Pastoret and Her Son was created by the male French artist Jacques Louis David. The beyond 220 year old original was made with the absolute size: 129,8 × 96,6 cm (51 1/8 × 38 in) and was painted with the technique oil on canvas.
