These children are up to mischief: they are teaching a cat to dance to the music of a shawm, a 17th-century wind instrument. While they are clearly enjoying them-selves, the cat screeches in protest, joined by a barking dog. The old man at the window angrily rebukes the children: should they not be learning something rather than giving dancing lessons to a cat?

The print on aluminium is the most popular entry-level product and is a truly modern way to display art reproductions, since it draws focus on the artwork.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): The poster print is a UV printed canvas with a fine structure on the surface. A print poster is excellently suited for placing your art replica in a personal frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm around the work of art to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Acrylic glass print: The acrylic glass print, often referred to as a plexiglass print, will turn your favorite original work of art into lovely décor. The artwork is custom-made with the help of modern UV direct printing machines. The real glass coating protects your custom art replica against light and heat for several decades.
  • Canvas print: The printed canvas, which should not be mistaken with a canvas painting, is an image applied on a canvas. Further, a canvas print generates a cosy, pleasant ambience. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight. This means, it is easy to hang up your Canvas print without the support of any wall-mounts. Hence, a canvas print is suitable for all kinds of walls in your home.
