Mezzetin, a stock comic character of the Italian commedia dell'arte, became an established performer on the Paris stage. Various players were engraved in his costume, which by about 1680 comprised a striped jacket and knee-britches, a floppy hat, a ruff, and a short cape. Mezzetin was by turns interfering, devious, and lovelorn, but not languorous. His head and his large, angular hands are extraordinarily expressive.

This artwork titled Mezzetin was painted by the rococo master Antoine Watteau in 1718. The piece of art has the following size: 21 3/4 x 17 in (55,2 x 43,2 cm) and was manufactured with the technique of oil on canvas.

Canvas prints are suitable for any kind of wall.
  • Acrylic glass print: The print on acrylic glass, often referenced as a plexiglass print, makes an artwork into décor. Above all, it forms a great alternative option to dibond and canvas prints. The artwork is made with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct print machines. The effect of this are rich and deep colors. With an acrylic glass art print sharp contrasts plus minor painting details will be more exposed because of the delicate tonal gradation in the picture. The plexiglass protects your selected fine art print against light and external influences for up to 60 years.
  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an impressive depth effect, which makes a contemporary impression thanks to a non-reflective surface. A direct Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the best introduction to art reproductions with aluminum. The colors of the print are vivid and luminous, the details of the print appear very clear. The UV print on aluminium is the most popular entry-level product and is a truly stylish way to display art, because it puts all of the viewer’s attention on the artwork.
