It is perfectly qualified for framing the art print with a special frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin 2-6cm round about the print in order to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Acrylic glass print: A glossy acrylic glass print, often labelled as a fine art print on plexiglass, transforms an artwork into gorgeous décor. In addition, the acrylic art print forms a distinct alternative to dibond or canvas fine art replicas. The acrylic glass protects your selected fine art print against sunlight and heat for many more years to come.

General specifications by The J. Paul Getty Museum (© Copyright - The J. Paul Getty Museum - The J. Paul Getty Museum)

Symmetrically composed with high cliffs and dark trees framing an aperture of sky at the end of a gorge, this landscape features a single birch tree standing brilliantly green.

Even without human figures or animals, Böcklin's painting seems decidedly more symbolic than descriptive. Is this a representation of life's brevity or its eternity? Its meaning is veiled; the artist was noted for his ability to conjure mood through landscape without clear narrative content.
