Art print materials that you can select:

The product dropdown menu provides you with the chance to choose a material and a size of your choice. The following sizes and materials are the options we offer you for individualization:

  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating on top): An print on acrylic glass, often referred to as a UV print on plexiglass, will turn the original work of art into wall décor. Your artwork is printed with the help of modern UV printing technology. The major upside of an acrylic glass fine art print is that contrasts and minor color details will be recognizeable due to the very fine gradation.
  • Poster (canvas material): Our poster print is a UV printed canvas paper with a fine surface structure, that reminds the actual work of art. It is designed for putting your art replica using a special frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin of around 2-6cm around the print in order to facilitate the framing.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a print material with a true depth, which makes a modern look by having a non-reflective surface.
  • Canvas: A printed canvas material stretched on a wood stretcher frame. It makes a unique impression of three dimensionality. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which means that it is easy to hang up the Canvas print without any wall-mounts. That is why, canvas prints are suited for any type of wall.

Disclaimer: We try all that we can in order to depict the art products as closely as possible and to demonstrate them visually in our shop. Nevertheless, the colors of the printed materials, as well as the imprint might diverge marginally from the image on the device's monitor. Depending on the settings of your screen and the condition of the surface, not all colors can be printed as realisitcally as the digital version shown here. Given that our art reproductions are printed and processed manually, there may also be slight differences in the motif's exact position and the size.

The painting is a fragment from a large altarpiece commissioned for the church of the hospital of Saint John the Baptist in Toledo. It depicts a passage in the Bible, Revelation (6:9-11) describing the opening of the Fifth Seal at the end of time, and the distribution of white robes to "those who had been slain for the work of God and for the witness they had borne." The missing upper part may have shown the Sacrificial Lamb opening the Fifth Seal. The canvas was an iconic work for twentieth-century artists and Picasso, who knew it in Paris, used it as an inspiration for Les Demoiselles d’Avignon.
