Choose your product material

We offer a range of various sizes and materials for every product. The following options are available for individualization:

  • Printed acrylic glass with a glossy effect (with real glass coating): An acrylic glass print, often referenced as a print on plexiglass, makes the original into magnificient décor and makes a viable alternative option to dibond and canvas fine art replicas. The work of art will be manufactured with the help of modern UV direct print technology.
  • Canvas: A canvas print, which should not be mistaken with a real canvas painting, is a digital image printed from an industrial printing machine. A canvas has a particular look of three dimensionality. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight. That means, it is easy to hang the Canvas print without the help of additional wall-mounts. Therefore, canvas prints are suited for any type of wall.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): Our poster print is a printed canvas with a slightly roughened texture on the surface. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin between 2-6cm around the painting, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond material with an impressive effect of depth. The Aluminium Dibond Print is the perfect introduction to fine art reproductions with aluminum. The white & bright parts of the artpiece shimmer with a silk gloss but without any glow. The colors are luminous, fine details of the print appear crisp, and you can truly notice the matte appearance of the product.

Additional description by The Metropolitan Museum of Art website (© Copyright - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art -

This composition presents the Flight into Egypt as a continuous narrative. In a tiny background scene the Holy Family emerges from the forest, en route to the contemporary Netherlandish town at the left. In the foreground Mary nurses the Child in a moment of repose on their arduous journey, which the viewer is visually meant to follow. David achieved in this painting a remarkable balance of color and a serene sense of light and atmosphere. His awareness of Italian Renaissance conventions is evident in the pyramidal motif of the Virgin and Child and his use of chiaroscuro to convey the volume of the figures.
