Hanging your canvas print: The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without any wall-mounts. That is why, canvas prints are suited for all kinds of walls.
  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): An Aluminium Dibond print is a material with an outstanding depth - for a modern look and a non-reflective surface. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is the best introduction to art reproductions manufactured on aluminum. For our Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your selected work of art onto the aluminium white-primed surface. This print on Aluminum Dibond is the most popular entry-level product and is a stylish way to display art reproductions, because it puts the viewer’s focus on the replica of the artwork.
  • The poster print (canvas material): The poster print is a UV printed canvas with a fine surface texture. It is excellently appropriate for putting your art print using a custom-made frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin 2-6 cm round about the print motif, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, often referenced as a UV print on plexiglass, will transform the original into wonderful wall décor and forms a viable alternative to canvas and dibond fine art replicas. Our acrylic glass protects your selected art print against light and external influences for between 4 and 6 decades.

Notes from the Curator: American art achieved cosmopolitan status in the decades following the nation’s centennial with figure paintings such as The Trial of Constance de Beverly by Toby Rosenthal (1848-1917). Although a scene set in the time of Henry VIII (1491-1547) the large canvas resonates of the 19th century and serves as a barometer of cultural taste. Rosenthal was one of the earliest American expatriate artists to achieve international fame. Prussian-born, he grew up in San Francisco but returned to Europe to enroll in the Royal Academy in Munich. There he was introduced to the academic belief in the superiority of history painting. Under Karl von Piloty, Rosenthal learned how to depict stories of an uplifting, moral character in dramatic, yet easily understood terms. While he lived in Germany, Rosenthal received his most significant commissions from Americans. In 1879 the San Francisco industrialist Irving M. Scott requested a scene from Marmion (1808), a romantic narrative poem by Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832). The tale was a favorite of Rosenthal’s patron, whose enthusiasm reflected the popularity of the Scotsman’s writings with the middle-class reading public. Scotts’ influence on 19th-century pictorial arts was equally pervasive, for beginning in the 1820s, his novels revolutionized history painting in Europe and America by providing artists with stories of a human character that had mass appeal. The Trial of Constance de Beverly was a late example of such painting. Marmion is a tale fraught with all the elements of a bestseller: romance, danger, abandonment, and death. The story concerns Constance de Beverly, a beautiful young novice who is seduced into leaving the convent by Lord Marmion, a handsome but eventually faithless suitor. Rosenthal chose not to delineate a romantic episode, but to focus on the tense courtroom drama as Constance awaits her fate at the hands of a clerical tribune. In quite operatic fashion befitting medieval revival novels and history paintings, Rosenthal depicted the moment when a monk plucks Constance’s cloak from her shoulders to reveal her clothed as Lord Marmion’s page: in the background two monks gleefully prepare the niche where she will be bricked-up alive for breaking her religious vows. Rosenthal brilliantly exploited the romantic elements of gothic literature by heightening the sinister, almost ghoulish character of the scene through a cavernous setting, brownish-black palette, tenebrous lighting, and theatrical facial expressions. Rosenthal sought complete accuracy in the details of the setting and costume. He did depart dramatically from the story, however, by omitting Lord Marmion from the trial scene. By doing so, Constance becomes the main protagonist, standing center stage, a heroine despite the tragedy of her situation. Painted during a period when most women still had little control of their own lives, Rosenthal’s Constance was someone who determined her own destiny. After winning a gold medal at the 1883 Munich International Art Exhibition, the painting was exhibited in San Francisco to great acclaim. Saved from the city’s 1906 earthquake and fire through quick thinking, it has remained in California ever since.
