Selectable materials

For every product we offer a range of different materials and sizes. That is why, we allow you to choose among the following options:

  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): A glossy print on acrylic glass, which is often referenced as a print on plexiglass, will transform your original work of art into lovely décor. With an acrylic glass art print contrasts and granular artwork details become identifiable with the help of the granular gradation in the picture.
  • Poster print (canvas material): A poster is a printed canvas with a nice finish on the surface, which resembles the original version of the work of art. It is suited for placing the fine art print in a personal frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm round about the painting, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
  • Canvas: The printed canvas, not to be confused with a painting on a canvas, is a digital copy printed from a UV direct printing machine. A canvas generates the particular effect of three-dimensionality. Your canvas print of this artpiece will let you turn your personal fine art print into a large artpiece like you know from galleries. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is easy to hang your Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. Therefore, a canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
  • Aluminium dibond print: These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with an outstanding effect of depth. Colors are bright and vivid, the details of the print appear clear and crisp, and the print has a a matte look that you can literally feel. The direct print on aluminium is the most popular entry-level product and is a modern way to display art reproductions, because it draws attention on the whole artwork.

Original information about the artwork by the museum (© - The Metropolitan Museum of Art -

Boxing, well known in antiquity, was revived in England in the eighteenth century and afforded entertainment for all classes of society. Humphreys's portrait must have been commissioned by Wilson Braddyll, his manager and promoter, in anticipation of a well-publicized match against Daniel Mendoza, which was to take place on January 9, 1788. The portrait was engraved by John Young in a large folio mezzotint published on January 3. The young boxer is depicted in his defensive stance, on the turf, and wearing breeches, silk stockings, and pumps.
