Product materials you can choose

For every product we offer different sizes and materials. Choose among the following product options now to match your preferences in size and material:

  • Poster print (canvas material): Our poster print is a UV printed canvas with a slight finish on the surface, which reminds the original work of art. A poster is used for putting your art copy using a custom-made frame. Please note, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6 cm around the painting, which facilitates the framing.
  • Canvas: A canvas direct print is a printed canvas stretched on a wooden frame. A canvas generates a extra effect of three-dimensionality. Also, a canvas print generates a charming and warm feeling. A canvas print has the advantage of being relatively low in weight, which means that it is easy and straightforward to hang the Canvas print without the help of any wall-mounts. Hence, canvas prints are suited for all types of walls.
  • The acrylic glass print: An print on acrylic glass, which is often labelled as a UV print on plexiglass, will change the artwork into brilliant wall décor. The great benefit of a plexiglass fine art print is that sharp contrasts as well as smaller artwork details will be more exposed due to the granular tonal gradation. The acrylic glass protects your selected art replica against sunlight and external influences for decades.
  • Aluminium print (aluminium dibond): An Aluminium Dibond print is a print material with a true effect of depth. The Aluminium Dibond Print is your ideal introduction to the sophisticated world of fine art replicas made on aluminum. For your Aluminium Dibond option, we print the artpiece onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite. The white and bright components of the original work of art shimmer with a silky gloss, however without the glare.

Original artwork description from the museum's website (© - Art Institute Chicago - Art Institute Chicago)

Fuseli’s unfinished painting depicts the ancient Greek hero Perseus, son of Zeus, a demigod who slew Medusa, the snake-haired Gorgon whose glance turned men to stone. On the ground lies the decapitated body of Medusa, above which the airborne Perseus flees with her head, which retained its deadly power. Medusa’s two sisters, at right, unsuccessfully attempt to stop Perseus.The painting’s source was the ancient Greek poet Hesiod’s the Shield of Heracles (translated into English in 1815), an imagined description in verse of the scenes found on Heracles’s beautifully crafted shield, including Perseus slaying Medusa.
