The product material choices

In the product dropdown menu you can choose your prefered size and material. The following options are available for individualization:

  • Aluminium print (aluminium dibond): An Aluminium Dibond print is a print with a true depth. A non-reflective surface structure creates a contemporary look. For the Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print the favorite work of art on the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite. The white & bright sections of the original work of art shimmer with a silk gloss, however without the glow. The colors of the print are bright and vivid, details of the print appear clear and crisp.
  • Canvas: The canvas print is a printed cotton canvas stretched on a wooden stretcher. It produces the particular impression of three-dimensionality. A canvas print of your favorite artwork will allow you to transform your customized art print into a large work of art. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which means that it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. That is why, a canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): A poster is a UV printed flat canvas paper with a granular texture on the surface, that reminds the original version of the work of art. It is excellently suited for framing the art replica using a custom-made frame. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm round about the work of art to facilitate the framing.
  • The glossy acrylic glass print (with real glass coating on top): An acrylic glass print, which is often described as a UV print on plexiglass, will turn your favorite original into décor and makes a good alternative option to canvas and aluminidum dibond art prints. The work of art will be manufactured with the help of modern UV printing machines. It creates vivid and deep color hues. Our acrylic glass protects your chosen art replica against light and external influences for decades.

Important legal note: We try all that we can in order to depict our art products with as many details as possible and to illustrate them visually on the product detail pages. Please keep in mind that the pigments of the printed materials, as well as the imprint can differ slightly from the presentation on your monitor. Depending on the screen settings and the condition of the surface, not all colors are printed as exactly as the digital version shown here. Because the art reproductions are printed and processed manually, there may as well be minor variations in the motif's exact position and the size.

Constant Mayer specialized in sentimental scenes of everyday life yet he also displayed a fidelity to nature that harmonized with the detailed landscapes painted by contemporary artists known as the Pre-Raphaelites. The young woman’s black dress, solemn disposition, and wedding ring signal a state of mourning. A church steeple in the background symbolizes her faith and purity, while the vegetation and stonework in the foreground suggest that she stands near her loved one’s grave. The golden lighting, low vantage point, and the figure’s windblown hair contribute to the air of introspection. Executed just after the Civil War, Love’s Melancholy resonated with the American public, who likely came to know the painting through a color reproduction that was produced and distributed by 1869.
