Further, the acrylic glass print makes a viable alternative to aluminium and canvas fine art replicas. Your artwork is being printed with state-of-the-art UV direct printing technology.
  • Canvas: The canvas direct print is a printed canvas mounted on a wooden stretcher. It has a sculptural effect of three-dimensionality.

Original artwork description from the museum (© Copyright - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Clothing the naked is one of the Seven Acts of Mercy traditionally promoted in Catholicism. Sweerts, a Catholic artist from the Spanish Netherlands, reduces the theme to a fraught confrontation between two individuals, one opulently dressed, the other nude and seemingly wary of the garments offered to him. He painted this image, most likely for a Catholic patron, while living in Amsterdam and engaged in regular fasting and other acts of devotion. In 1662 the artist joined a group of missionaries bound for Persia, although he was later dismissed from their company for his erratic behavior.

This more than 350 years old masterpiece Clothing the Naked was painted by the baroque painter Michiel Sweerts. The version of the artwork has the size: 32 1/4 x 45 in (81,9 x 114,3 cm). Oil on canvas was applied by the European artist as the medium of the work of art.
