Poussin is the painter-philosopher of the 17th century. His works were mainly created in Rome, a place dominated by the Italian Baroque with its focus on sensuousness and effect. In sharp contrast to this style, Poussin’s clear imagery stands out.

An interest in classical stoicism The period’s interest in thought and enlightenment took many forms, one of them being a keen interest in classical stoicism, a school of philosophy focusing on reason and moral argument.

In the writings of the ancient scholar Lucian, stoicism presented itself in the story of Eudamidas’ exemplary friendship with two other citizens in Corinth who assumed responsibility for his mother and daughter after his death as stipulated in his will.

A portrait of Eudamidas' friendship Poussin’s picture of the dying Eudamidas dictating his will to a scribe presents this ideal friendship with imagery as clear as the value of Eudamidas’ friendship is obvious.

The pinnacle of pathos organised rationally The figures are clearly rendered in local colours that make them stand apart from their surroundings. From Eudamidas’ face, contorted in pain as it is, to the doctor’s absent-minded expression as he places a hand on his patient and onwards to the daughter’s careworn face, the artist gives us clear directions on how to interpret the events in the picture. It represents the very pinnacle of pathos, yet it uses rationally organised means to do so.

Materials you can choose

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

  • Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating on top): A glossy print on acrylic glass, which is often labelled as a print on plexiglass, will convert the original into beautiful wall décor. The artwork is manufactured with modern UV direct printing technology. The great benefit of a plexiglass art print is that contrasts as well as minor color details will be identifiable with the help of the very subtle gradation of the picture. The real glass coating protects your custom art print against light and external influences for several decades.
  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond material with an impressive depth. A direct Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is your best introduction to prints on aluminum. The white & bright components of the original artwork shine with a silky gloss, however without glow.
  • Canvas: The printed canvas material applied on a wood stretcher frame. A canvas produces a plastic impression of three-dimensionality. How can I hang a canvas on the wall? Canvas Prints have the advantage of being relatively low in weight. That means, it is quite simple to hang the Canvas print without the support of additional wall-mounts. Because of thatcanvas prints are suitable for all kinds of walls.
  • Poster print (canvas material): Our poster is a UV printed sheet of cotton canvas paper with a slightly roughened structure on the surface, which reminds the actual artwork. It is excellently suited for framing your art copy with a personal frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of something between 2 - 6cm around the print motif, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
