For every product we offer a range of different materials and sizes. Choose among the following product options now to match your preferences in size and material:

  • The acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): A glossy print on acrylic glass, often denoted as a plexiglass print, will transform your favorite original artwork into wonderful décor and forms a good alternative to canvas or dibond fine art replicas. Our plexiglass with real glass coating protects your custom art print against light and heat for many decades.
  • Canvas: The UV printed canvas material applied on a wood frame. A canvas has a extra effect of three dimensionality. A canvas print produces a attractive and comfortable ambience. Canvas Prints have the advantage of being relatively low in weight, which means that it is quite simple to hang up the Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suited for any type of wall.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): Our poster is a printed flat canvas with a fine texture on the surface, that resembles the original work of art. Please bear in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm round about the print motif, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Metal (aluminium dibond print): Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an outstanding depth. A non-reflective surface make a modern look. This print on aluminium is the most popular entry-level product and is a contemporary way to display fine art reproductions, because it draws attention on the replica of the artwork.

Original information about the work of art from the museum (© - Statens Museum for Kunst (National Gallery of Denmark) - Statens Museum for Kunst (National Gallery of Denmark))

The Swedish artist C.G. Pilo became a court painter in the Danish royal household in 1747, the same year that Frederic 5. was anointed King. Pilo remained court painter until he left Denmark again in 1771.

In 1660 the Danish monarchy went from being an elective monarchy to absolutism, and Danish kings were anointed rather than crowned.

The anointing ceremony During the ceremony, the king’s brow, chest, and right wrist were anointed, and indeed Pilo made reference to these specifics by letting the king’s brow catch the light and letting his right hand be ungloved.

An illustration of the monarch's immortality The objective of the anointing was mainly to illustrate the immortality of the monarch irrespective of the fact that the ritual marked the accession of a new person to discharge the duties. The Crown was to be displayed in all its constancy and immutability. That is why King Frederic 5. is shown in a posture similar to the steps of the minuet, and Pilo presents both the symbols of the Throne and the details of the anointing ceremony.

The setting for all this pomp and circumstance appears to go beyond any specific site: the undulating patterns of the anointing curtain is repeated in the folds of the ermine cloak, which in turn merges with the profusions of clouds and draperies in the background.
