Select your preferred material
For every fine art print we offer different materials & sizes. Hence, we allow you to choose among the following options:
- Printed poster on canvas material: A poster print is a UV printed canvas with a granular surface texture, that resembles the actual artwork. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin between 2-6cm round about the print to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
- Canvas print: The UV printed canvas applied on a wooden frame. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which means that it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without the support of extra wall-mounts. That is why, a canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
- Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a material with an impressive depth. The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is your ideal start to the sophisticated world of reproductions on aluminum.
- Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating): An acrylic glass print, which is sometimes described as a an art print on plexiglass, will convert the artwork into amazing home décor. The major upside of an acrylic glass fine art copy is that contrasts and also artwork details become more recognizeable thanks to the precise gradation.
Important information: We try the best we can in order to describe our art products as clearly as possible and to demonstrate them visually on the various product detail pages. Although, the tone of the print materials, as well as the print result might differ slightly from the presentation on the device's screen. Depending on the screen settings and the condition of the surface, colors can unfortunately not be printed as realistically as the digital version. Given that all the fine art prints are processed and printed by hand, there may also be slight deviations in the motif's size and exact position.

This charming still life, created just two years after John La Farge took up painting, is primarily a study of color and light. La Farge beautifully renders the effects of sunlight on the white curtain by blending an innovative mix of colors—peach, creamy white, and a light, green-tinged gray—to capture the subtleties of shadow, contour, and light on the fabric. Brushwork, not color or line, distinguishes the curtain from the window ledge and background sky, anticipating modernist art styles such as post-impressionism.
Painted within the year of his marriage to Margaret Mason Perry, Flowers on a Window Ledge may also express the artist's romantic sentiments. Such an interpretation was not lost on critics of the time, one of whom wrote that La Farge's flowers were "burning with love, beauty, and sympathy . . . their language is of the heart, and they talk to us of human love." The setting proves meaningful as well, as the canvas was painted from the window of Hessian House, a Rhode Island inn where La Farge and his wife stayed during the early years of their marriage. Moreover, the white curtain fabric visually evokes a bridal gown; the bowl of pink and red flowers, a bouquet; and the interior setting, the domesticity of marriage.
After a serious illness and a period of financial stress in 1866, the artist stopped producing still-life paintings. When he resumed working, he turned to mural painting and decorative stained glass, considered more conventional artistic practices at the time.
