In the product dropdown lists you can choose your prefered size and material. We allow you to pick your favorite size and material among the following product individualization options:

  • Poster on canvas material: The poster is a printed canvas with a slightly rough structure on the surface. The print poster is optimally appropriate for placing your art print using a custom frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin between 2-6cm around the artwork, which facilitates the framing.
  • Aluminium print (aluminium dibond): An Aluminium Dibond print is a material with an outstanding effect of depth. For your Direct Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print the favorite artwork on the aluminium composite surface. The bright and white sections of the artpiece shimmer with a silky gloss, however without any glare.
  • The canvas print: A canvas print, which should not be mistaken with a canvas painting, is a digital image printed from an industrial printer. It creates a plastic effect of three-dimensionality. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is easy to hang the Canvas print without any wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for all kinds of walls.

What does the website of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art state about this 17th century work of art from the painter Guido Cagnacci? (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

The subject, from Plutarch's Lives (1st century A.D.), is Cleopatra's suicide by an asp bite following the defeat of her beloved Mark Antony at the battle of Actium. It provided Cagnacci with an erotically charged and emotionally engaging action that appealed to the Baroque imagination, whether in poetry, theater, or painting. Although Cagnacci’s picture is indebted to the example of Guido Reni, its flagrant sensuality is utterly singular. Cagnacci made a trip to Rome in the company of Guercino, where Caravaggio’s example of painting directly from the model proved transformative. The model here may be the artist’s mistress.
