Description from the museum's website (© Copyright - by Rijksmuseum - Rijksmuseum)

The Greek philosophers Democritus and Heraclitus were considered to be polar opposites. In contrast to the old, melancholy Heraclitus (the nearby pendant), Democritus appears as a young, laughing hedonist. He points to the distance, as though that is where the folly of mankind is found. Together, the pair of paintings conveys a moralizing message: whether you laugh or cry, the world remains incurably foolish.

Fine art print materials which we offer:

For every fine art print we offer a range of different materials and sizes. In order match your personal requirements perfectly, you can choose among the following product customization options:

  • Printed poster on canvas material: A poster print is a printed sheet of flat cotton canvas paper with a fine surface structure. It is particularly suited for framing your art copy with the help of a special frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin of around 2-6cm round about the painting, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond (metal print): An Aluminium Dibond print is a material with an impressive depth. The colors of the print are luminous, fine details of the print are crisp. The direct UV print on Aluminum Dibond is one of the most popular entry-level products and is an extremely stylish way to showcase art prints, because it draws focus on the artwork.
  • Canvas: The printed canvas, not to be confused with an artwork painted on a canvas, is a digital copy printed on a UV direct printing machine. Hanging a canvas print: Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which means that it is easy to hang up the Canvas print without any wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suited for all kinds of walls.
  • Glossy acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): A glossy print on acrylic glass, often labelled as a print on plexiglass, will turn the artwork into beautiful wall décor and offers a distinct alternative option to dibond and canvas prints. With an acrylic glass art print contrasts and small painting details become more exposed due to the subtle gradation. The plexiglass with real glass coating protects your custom fine art print against light and external influences for many decades.

Important note: We try all that we can in order to depict the art products as accurately as it is possible and to demonstrate them visually. Nevertheless, the pigments of the print products, as well as the print result can diverge to a certain extent from the representation on the screen. Depending on the screen settings and the nature of the surface, color pigments may not be printed 100% realistically. Because the art reproductions are processed and printed by hand, there may also be slight deviations in the size and exact position of the motif.
