This work shows us what a 17th century pin board looked like. You could even say that the painting is one of the pin boards of that time, because the purpose of the painting was mainly to lead the spectator to believe that he or she was standing in front of one of these boards, also known as letter walls.

This work is, as a large portion of Gijsbrecht’s oeuvre, painted as a trompe l’oeil, an illusion, made to trick the spectator into believing that the objects are real and three-dimensional rather than flat and two-dimensional.

Like today, pin boards were used to keep and display documents, scraps of paper, letters/postcards, drawings and various small objects. This way, the board offers a glimpse of who you are or maybe even more, a glimpse of who you wish to be in the eyes of the world.

Because the letter walls were used to create the contour of an identity, they have often been used as an alternative portrait painting, where the person him/herself is absent and is instead described by an accumulation of objects.

Possible material options

We offer a range of various sizes and materials for every product. We allow you to pick your favorite size and material among the following product individualization options:

  • The canvas print: A canvas print, not to be mistaken with a painting on a canvas, is a digital copy printed on a UV direct printer. It produces a exclusive impression of three-dimensionality. How can I hang a canvas on the wall? Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is easy and straightforward to hang up your Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for all types of walls.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): Our poster is a UV printed sheet of flat canvas paper with a fine texture on the surface. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm round about the print, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): The acrylic glass print, often described as a print on plexiglass, changes the original work of art into beautiful wall decoration and makes a good alternative to aluminium and canvas prints. The work of art is printed with state-of-the-art UV direct printing machines. This creates stunning, vibrant colors.
  • Aluminium dibond (metal print): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with a true effect of depth. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is the perfect start to art prints on aluminum. For our Direct Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your artwork on the surface of the aluminum material.

Important information: We try whatever we can to describe our art products as accurate as possible and to illustrate them visually in our shop. However, the pigments of the print materials, as well as the print result can diverge marginally from the presentation on your monitor. Depending on the screen settings and the quality of the surface, not all color pigments are printed as realistically as the digital version shown here. Because all fine art prints are printed and processed manually, there may also be minor deviations in the exact position and the size of the motif.
