Which is your preferred product material?

In the dropdown menu next to the product offering you can pick your individual size and material. The following options are available for individualization:

  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): The acrylic glass print, which is sometimes referenced as a UV print on plexiglass, will transform an artwork into magnificient home decoration. In addition to that, it offers a great alternative to dibond or canvas prints. Your own version of the artwork will be printed with modern UV direct print machines.
  • Aluminium dibond print: Aluminium Dibond prints are metal prints with an outstanding depth. A direct Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the perfect introduction to fine art reproductions made with alu. The bright and white sections of the original artpiece shimmer with a silk gloss, however without the glow. Colors are luminous and vivid, fine details are crisp and clear.
  • Poster print (canvas material): A poster print is a printed canvas with a slight surface finish. It is designed for framing the fine art print with a custom frame. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin between 2 - 6cm round about the work of art, which facilitates the framing.
  • Canvas print: The canvas direct print is a printed cotton canvas mounted on a wooden stretcher. It has a sculptural look of three-dimensionality. A printed canvas produces a soft and comfortable effect. How can I hang a canvas print on the wall? Canvas Prints have the advantage of being relatively low in weight. That means, it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without any wall-mounts. A canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.

Giulio Romano and workshop

In a canvas filled with half-naked, twisting bodies, the story of Bacchus's birth unfolds in a typically wry Mannerist commentary on the perils of passion. On discovering that the chief god Jupiter had impregnated the young mortal Semele, his wife, Juno, hatched a plan to end the love affair. Disguised as Semele's nurse, and knowing that Jupiter's lightning and thunder were lethal, she persuaded Semele to ask Jupiter to visit "in all his glory." Here, as Semele gives birth to Bacchus, who is caught by nymphs, she herself is consumed by flames. From the top of the clouds, Juno looks apprehensively at her thunderbolt-carrying husband.

Giulio Romano and his workshop originally painted this scene as part of an erotic series of mythological love stories for Federico Gonzaga, duke of Mantua. Giulio probably did not execute the series by himself, though he likely designed them and painted selected parts.

This artwork was created by Giulio Romano. The more than 480 year old original creation was painted with the absolute dimensions: 126,4 × 79,4 cm (49 3/4 × 31 1/4 in) and was made with the technique of oil on panel.
