The magnificently frescoed monastery of San Benedetto, about thirty miles east of Rome at Subiaco, was built during the Middle Ages as a pilgrimage site. The presence of the reigning pontiff during a visit of 1834 imparts the gravity of contemporary history to this picturesque costume piece. He is shown emerging from the Sacro Speco, the cave venerated as the one in which Saint Benedict lived as a hermit about A.D. 500. Montessuy sought to establish his reputation with this, his first such masterwork, at the Paris Salon of 1844. There is no more complete expression of the penchant among Lyonnais artists for surface description than this painting.

Pick a art print material variant

For every product we offer different materials & sizes. The following options are available for individualization:

  • Canvas print: The canvas direct print is a printed canvas mounted on a wood frame. A canvas has the unique look of three-dimensionality. How can I hang a canvas on the wall? Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is quite simple to hang the Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. Therefore, canvas prints are suitable for all types of walls.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a material with a true effect of depth, which makes a contemporary impression with a surface , that is not reflective. The Aluminium Dibond Print is the best introduction to art replicas on aluminum. The bright and white parts of the artpiece shine with a silk gloss, however without the glow.
  • Print on glossy acrylic glass: An acrylic glass print, often named a plexiglass print, will convert your original work of art into décor. Your work of art will be manufactured with the help of modern UV direct print technology. This makes stunning, vibrant color tones. The major upside of an acrylic glass fine art copy is that sharp contrasts and also color details become more identifiable thanks to the very fine tonal gradation in the picture. The plexiglass with real glass coating protects your chosen art print against sunlight and external influences for many years to come.
  • Poster print (canvas material): Our poster is a UV printed flat canvas paper with a granular finish on the surface. A printed poster is perfectly suited for framing your art replica with the help of a custom-made frame. Please note, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6 cm round about the artwork to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
