Courbet painted this view looking out over the English Channel during a visit to Étretat along the coast of Normandy in August 1869. The ocean has receded at low tide, and two small boats are left on the shore. The tranquil composition, with its immense sky towering over narrow bands of water and sand, is unusual for Courbet’s marine paintings of this period, dominated by dramatically crashing waves.

Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without any wall-mounts. Hence, a canvas print is suited for all kinds of walls.
  • Print on acrylic glass: The print on acrylic glass, which is often described as a UV print on plexiglass, will convert the original into gorgeous décor and is a great alternative option to canvas and aluminidum dibond prints. Your work of art is manufactured thanks to modern UV print machines. The great advantage of a plexiglass print is that contrasts and also minor color details become more visible because of the delicate gradation of the picture. The plexiglass with real glass coating protects your custom art print against light and external influences for many years to come.
