The Swedish portraitist Wertmuller worked in Paris until the upheavals of the French Revolution drove him to Madrid and then Philadelphia. In early November 1794 he completed his first portrait of Washington, which he replicated many times. With its fussy lace ruff and powder-speckled coat, Wertmuller's portrayal of Washington was both admired and condemned. Some proclaimed it the finest likeness of the president, while others, who preferred the work of Peale, Stuart, and Trumbull, deemed it overly precious and not at all like him.

The material choices

In the product dropdown lists you can select your individual material and size. Pick your favorite size and material among the following options:

  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with an outstanding depth - for a modern look and non-reflective surface. For your Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your selected artwork onto the aluminium composite white-primed surface.
  • The canvas print: A UV printed canvas material applied on a wooden stretcher frame. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight. This means, it is quite simple to hang your Canvas print without the help of extra wall-mounts. That is why, canvas prints are suited for any kind of wall.
  • Print on acrylic glass: The acrylic glass print, which is often described as a print on plexiglass, changes your favorite artwork into beautiful home decoration. The work of art will be manufactured with modern UV direct printing machines. This creates intense, sharp print colors. The great upside of a plexiglass art print is that contrasts plus granular details become more visible thanks to the subtle tonal gradation in the print.
  • Poster print on canvas material: The poster print is a printed sheet of canvas paper with a slightly rough texture on the surface. It is perfectly qualified for putting your art replica with a custom frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin between 2-6 cm round about the print, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
