Original information about the artwork from the museum (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

This church, with its fine Gothic tracery, was founded in 1369, deserted in 1546, and later embraced as a motif by German Romantic artists. Carus visited in August 1820, making a drawing (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden) that served as a study for the painting. It depicts a vista through two windows—one on either side of the ruined choir—toward a pale morning sky and distant hill. In its starkness and opposition of dark and light, and with young trees referring to the cycle of life, the image invites both hope and meditation.

Select your art print material option

For every art print we offer a range of different sizes & materials. Select your preferred size and material among the following options:

  • Poster print (canvas material): Our poster is a printed canvas with a slightly rough texture on the surface. Please note, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin 2-6cm round about the print, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond: Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an impressive depth. The non-reflective surface creates a modern look. The colors are luminous and vivid, details appear clear and crisp, and you can truly notice the matte appearance.
  • Printed acrylic glass with a glossy effect (with real glass coating on top): An acrylic glass print, which is sometimes denoted as a an art print on plexiglass, changes your selected original artwork into brilliant décor. The work of art is being printed with state-of-the-art UV direct printing machines. The great upside of a plexiglass art print is that contrasts and also smaller details will be more exposed because of the fine tonal gradation in the picture. The plexiglass with real glass coating protects your chosen art replica against light and external influences for many years to come.
  • Canvas: The UV printed canvas mounted on a wooden stretcher frame. Canvas Prints have the great advantage of being low in weight, which means that it is easy to hang up the Canvas print without the help of any wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for any type of wall.
