In the product dropdown selection you can choose your favorite size and material. Thus, we allow you to choose among the following options:

  • Poster on canvas material: Our poster is a printed canvas paper with a granular surface texture. It is best suited for framing the art replica with the help of a custom-made frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin of approximately 2-6cm around the print motif, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond (metal print): This is a metal print made on aluminium dibond with an impressive depth effect. A direct Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the perfect start to the sophisticated world of fine art replicas manufactured with aluminum. For your Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your chosen work of art onto the surface of the aluminum composite. The bright parts of the artpiece shine with a silk gloss but without glare. The direct UV print on aluminium is the most popular entry-level product and is an extremely stylish way to display artworks, as it puts the viewer’s attention on the whole artwork.
  • Acrylic glass print: An print on acrylic glass, often labelled as a plexiglass print, will change your favorite original work of art into home décor. The acrylic glass protects your chosen fine art print against light and external influences for up to six decades.
  • Canvas: The printed canvas, which shall not be confused with a real painting on a canvas, is a digital replica printed from an industrial printing machine. A printed canvas of your favorite artwork will give you the unique chance of transforming your customized art print into a large size artwork like you would see in a gallery. Canvas Prints have the advantage of being relatively low in weight, which means that it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without any wall-mounts. That is why, canvas prints are suited for all types of walls.

Please bear in mind that the colors of the print materials, as well as the printing may vary to a certain extent from the representation on the monitor. Depending on your settings of your screen and the quality of the surface, colors might not be printed as realistically as the digital version.

Supplementary description by the museum's website (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

A native of Philadelphia, Jennings spent his career in London in the circle of Benjamin West. He painted an allegorical history painting to celebrate the new building for the Library Company of Philadelphia, based on instructions he received from the Library’s founder Benjamin Franklin, and its directors, most of whom were Quakers and active Abolitionists. This recently discovered study captures the vision for the finished painting (Library Company of Philadelphia), including the figure of Liberty, surrounded by symbols of the arts and sciences, whose feet rest on severed chains as she gestures toward a group of freed slaves. In the distant landscape freed blacks, one of whom plays a banjo, dance around a Liberty Pole. This is the first known painting before the Civil War era to address the issue of the abolition of slavery in the United States.
