Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin of around 2 - 6cm around the work of art, which facilitates the framing.
  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): An Aluminium Dibond print is a print with a true effect of depth. The Aluminium Dibond Print is your perfect introduction to art replicas on aluminum.
  • Canvas: A printed canvas, which shall not be confused with an artwork painted on a canvas, is a digital image applied on a canvas. It has the sculptural effect of three-dimensionality. What is more, canvas produces a lovely and pleasing effect. How do I hang a canvas on the wall? The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang your Canvas print without the help of any wall-mounts. Hence, a canvas print is suitable for all kinds of walls.

Your own replica of the artwork is printed with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct printing machines. This creates the impression of impressive, rich colors. With an acrylic glass fine art print contrasts as well as granular color details will be visible with the help of the fine gradation.

Like the Impressionists, who emphasized light effects, painters of the Hudson River School focused on temporal conditions of the landscape to suggest specific atmospheres. In Rocky Coast, John Frederick Kensett depicted the shoreline on a hazy day, with calm water and gentle waves. The careful treatment of nature by the Hudson River School artists has been linked to the writings of Transcendentalists such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, who wrote in Nature (1836): “Standing on the bare ground,—my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space,—all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball. I am nothing. I see all.” The horizon line of Rocky Coast illustrates this idea, as the uninterrupted water appears infinite, suggesting that the ocean continues beyond the vision of the viewer.
