What kind of fine art print material do you favor?

In the product dropdown lists you can choose your individual size and material. The following sizes and materials are the options we offer you for individualization:

  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): This is a metal print manufactured on aluminium dibond material with an impressive effect of depth. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is your best introduction to reproductions with aluminum.
  • Acrylic glass print: The acrylic glass print, often labelled as a plexiglass print, will turn your favorite original into brilliant wall decoration. Your artwork is being manufactured thanks to the help of state-of-the-art UV direct print machines. This makes vibrant, deep color shades. The major advantage of an acrylic glass fine art copy is that sharp contrasts as well as small artwork details become exposed due to the very fine tonal gradation.
  • Poster (canvas material): The poster is a UV printed sheet of flat cotton canvas with a fine structure on the surface, that reminds the actual masterpiece. It is qualified for putting the fine art print with the help of a custom-made frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of approximately 2-6 cm around the work of art, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • The canvas print: The printed canvas material stretched on a wood stretcher frame. A canvas generates the particular look of three-dimensionality. How do I hang a canvas print on my wall? Canvas Prints have the advantage of being low in weight, which means that it is easy and straightforward to hang your Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. Because of thata canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.

Important note: We try the best we can to depict the products as closely as possible and to display them visually. Still, the pigments of the print products and the imprint might vary slightly from the representation on the device's monitor. Depending on your screen settings and the nature of the surface, not all color pigments can be printed as realistically as the digital version on this website. Bearing in mind that all art reproductions are processed and printed manually, there might also be minor variations in the size and exact position of the motif.

Painted slightly after the artist’s Young Woman Peeling Apples, this scene reveals Maes’s increasing interest in anecdotal, domestic detail as he moved further out of Rembrandt’s shadow. Here, he shows a young mother absorbed in the meticulous work of lace-making, while her baby looks boldly out at the viewer from his high chair. As in many of Maes’s other works, the color red—on the mother’s bodice, baby’s hat, and tablecloth—provides a unifying element.

This artwork was made by the artist Nicolaes Maes in the year 1656. The version of the artwork measures the following size: 17 3/4 x 20 3/4 in (45,1 x 52,7 cm).
