Pick your material

In the dropdown selection right next to the product you can select your prefered material and size. Thus, we allow you to choose among the following options:

  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with an outstanding depth effect. The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the excellent start to the sophisticated world of art prints with aluminum. For your Direct Aluminium Dibond option, we print the chosen work of art right onto the aluminium composite white-primed surface. The bright and white components of the original work of art shine with a silk gloss but without any glow.
  • Canvas print: The canvas print, not to be mistaken with a painting on a canvas, is a digital image applied on a canvas fabric. It generates the sculptural look of three-dimensionality. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight. This means, it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. A canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
  • Printed acrylic glass with a glossy effect (with real glass coating): A glossy acrylic glass print, which is sometimes labelled as a plexiglass print, will convert your favorite original artwork into amazing décor. The artwork is being custom-made with modern UV print technology. The major advantage of a plexiglass print is that contrasts and small color details become more exposed due to the very subtle gradation.
  • Poster on canvas material: The Artprinta poster print is a UV printed sheet of canvas paper with a slightly roughened structure on the surface, that resembles the original version of the masterpiece. Please note, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin of around 2-6cm around the painting, which facilitates the framing.

Important note: We try to depict the art products as accurate as possible and to illustrate them visually. Although, the colors of the print products, as well as the print result can vary somehwat from the image on the screen. Depending on your screen settings and the nature of the surface, colors can unfortunately not be printed as exactly as the digital version shown here. In view of the fact that all the fine art prints are printed and processed manually, there may also be slight variations in the exact position and the size of the motif.

What does the curator team of the The J. Paul Getty Museum say about the 19th century artwork made by Jean-François Millet? (© Copyright - by The J. Paul Getty Museum -

"[A]s I have never seen anything but fields since I was born, I try to say as best I can what I saw and felt when I was at work," wrote Jean-François Millet. At the Salon of 1863, Man with a Hoe caused a storm of controversy. The man in the picture was considered brutish and frightening by Parisian bourgeoisie. The Industrial Revolution had caused a steady exodus from French farms, and Man with a Hoe was interpreted as a socialist protest about the peasant's plight. Though his paintings were judged in political terms, Millet declared that he was neither a socialist nor an agitator.

A religious fatalist, Millet believed that man was condemned to bear his burdens. This farmer is Everyman. His face is lit, yet composed of blots of color that give him no individuality. He is big and dirty and utterly exhausted by the backbreaking work of turning this rocky, thistle-ridden earth into a productive field like the one being worked in the distance. A tribute to dignity and courage in the face of a life of unremitting exertion, Man with a Hoe was long considered a symbol of the laboring class.
