Materials our customers can pick from
We offer a range of different sizes and materials for every product. Hence, we allow you to choose among the following options:
- Canvas: The UV printed canvas material applied on a wooden frame. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight. This means, it is easy to hang up your Canvas print without the help of additional wall-mounts. That is why, canvas prints are suited for all kinds of walls.
- Metal (aluminium dibond print): An Aluminium Dibond print is a material with a true effect of depth, which creates a modern impression thanks to a surface structure, which is not reflective. The Aluminium Dibond Print is your ideal introduction to prints produced on aluminum. Colors are luminous in the highest definition, the fine details are clear and crisp.
- The poster print (canvas material): A poster is a UV printed flat canvas with a fine structure on the surface, which resembles the actual version of the artwork. Please note, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin 2-6cm round about the painting to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
- Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, which is often described as a plexiglass print, will transform the original artwork into beautiful décor and offers a good alternative to canvas or aluminium dibond fine art replicas. The work of art is made with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct print technology. The real glass coating protects your selected art replica against light and heat for many years to come.

Supplemental description from the museum's website (© Copyright - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)
Several artists ventured portraits of Mathilde Desportes, including the popular academician Jean-Jacques Henner (1829–1905), but her husband, Auguste Cuoq, found most of them unacceptable. This likeness was among those he rejected, reportedly because he felt that it did not adequately convey his wife’s beauty. Courbet appears to have finished the picture to his own satisfaction in 1857, the date he assigned it in the catalogue of the solo exhibition he mounted in Paris in 1867.
