Between 1877 and 1878, Gustave Caillebotte made a series of paintings focusing on swimmers, fishermen, rowers, and canoers at his family estate in Yerres. In Skiffs, which was exhibited at the fourth impressionist exhibition in 1879 under the name Pésissoires sur L’Yerres (Flat-Bottom Canoes on the Yerres), he adopted the short, broken brushstrokes of Monet and the bold palette of Renoir, but achieved a much different effect: as the rowers zig-zag across the canvas in a bold, diagonal rhythm, they convey a sense of movement, a progression of time and space that reveals Caillebotte’s interest in photography. An avid sailor and boat designer, Caillebotte—perhaps inspired by Japanese prints—adopted a dramatic viewpoint perched above the scene to emphasize the precariousness associated with the easily tipped, flat-bottomed skiffs.

Product materials our customers can choose

The product dropdown menu provides you with the chance to pick your prefered material and size. We allow you to pick your favorite size and material among the following product individualization options:

  • Aluminium dibond (metal print): An Aluminium Dibond print is a print with an impressive depth - for a modern look and a non-reflective surface. For the Aluminium Dibond option, we print the selected artwork right onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum material. The bright & white parts of the artwork shimmer with a silk gloss but without the glow. The colors of the print are luminous, details are clear and crisp. The print on Aluminum Dibond is the most popular entry-level product and is a sophisticated way to display art reproductions, because it puts 100% of the viewer’s focus on the artwork.
  • Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating): An acrylic glass print, often denoted as a UV print on plexiglass, makes your favorite original into brilliant home décor. What is more, it makes a distinct alternative to dibond or canvas fine art prints. The major advantage of an acrylic glass art print is that sharp contrasts and artwork details become visible with the help of the subtle tonal gradation. Our plexiglass with real glass coating protects your chosen fine art print against light and heat for between 4 and 6 decades.
  • The canvas print: The UV printed canvas material stretched on a wooden stretcher frame. A canvas makes a cosy and comfortable appearance. A canvas of this masterpiece will let you turn your customized fine art print into a large work of art. Hanging a canvas print: A canvas print has the great advantage of being relatively low in weight. This means, it is easy and straightforward to hang up the Canvas print without the support of extra wall-mounts. Hence, a canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): The poster is a UV printed flat cotton canvas paper with a slightly roughened surface structure. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm around the artwork, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
