Artwork description as provided from the museum (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

In the first quarter of the nineteenth century Montmartre was still a picturesque suburb of Paris, where about forty windmills could be seen. Michel loved this stretch of land and painted many views of it throughout his career. The detailed observation and the rather precise technique of this picture suggest that it was done around 1820.

The painting titled The Mill of Montmartre was painted by the male painter Georges Michel. The painting has the size: 29 x 40 in (73,7 x 101,6 cm) and was painted with the medium oil on canvas. This piece of art can be viewed in in the art collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, New York, United States of America.

Possible material choices

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

  • Printed poster (canvas material): A poster print is a printed flat canvas paper with a slightly rough surface texture. Please note, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin 2-6 cm round about the print, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond (metal print): Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an impressive effect of depth. The Aluminium Dibond Print is the perfect start to reproductions on aluminum. For your Direct Aluminium Dibond print, we print the selected artwork onto the aluminium composite white-primed surface.
  • Acrylic glass print: The acrylic glass print, which is sometimes referred to as a UV print on plexiglass, changes your favorite original artwork into beautiful home decoration. In addition to that, it makes a good alternative to dibond or canvas fine art prints. Your artwork is manufactured with modern UV direct printing machines. This makes vivid and impressive colors. With an acrylic glass fine art print sharp contrasts and minor color details will be exposed because of the very fine tonal gradation.
  • Canvas: The canvas print is a printed cotton canvas stretched on a wooden frame. It produces a plastic look of three dimensionality. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight. This means, it is easy to hang the Canvas print without any wall-mounts. A canvas print is suited for any type of wall.
