The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the excellent start to fine art prints made with aluminum. For the Direct Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print the favorite artpiece onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite. The bright & white parts of the artwork shimmer with a silky gloss, however without any glare. The direct UV print on Aluminum Dibond is the most popular entry-level product and is a truly stylish way to display art prints, because it draws attention on the artwork.
  • The canvas print: The printed canvas material mounted on a wooden stretcher frame. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is easy to hang the Canvas print without the help of extra wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suitable for any kind of wall.
  • The acrylic glass print: An print on acrylic glass, often named a plexiglass print, will transform the original into marvellous home décor and is a viable alternative option to canvas or dibond fine art prints. With an acrylic glass art print sharp contrasts and small image details will be recognizeable due to the very fine gradation.
  • The poster print (canvas material): The poster print is a UV printed sheet of canvas with a granular surface texture, that resembles the original artwork. The print poster is used for framing your art print with the help of a customized frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin of approximately 2-6cm around the print in order to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.

This canvas, first exhibited in 1799, was sold by the artist in 1808 to his biographer, John Knowles. It illustrates a passage from Paradise Lost (II, 622–66) in which the hellhounds surrounding Sin are compared to those who "follow the night-hag when, called, / In secret, riding through the air she comes, Lured with the smell of infant blood, to dance / With Lapland witches, while the laboring moon Eclipses at their charms." "Night-hag" is an epithet of the Greek goddess Hecate, who presided over witchcraft and magical rites.
