The product material options

We offer a range of various sizes and materials for every product. Pick your favorite size and material among the following options:

  • Printed poster (canvas material): The Artprinta poster is a printed cotton canvas paper with a slightly roughened finish on the surface, that reminds the actual artwork. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin of approximately 2 - 6cm round about the painting, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • The canvas print: The UV printed canvas mounted on a wooden stretcher frame. A canvas generates a extra impression of three-dimensionality. A canvas of this masterpiece will let you turn your into a large artwork. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight. This means, it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for any type of wall.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a print material with a true depth - for a modern look and non-reflective surface structure. For the Direct Aluminium Dibond print, we print the favorite artwork right on the surface of the aluminum material. The white and bright components of the original artwork shimmer with a silk gloss, however without the glare.
  • The acrylic glass print: An print on acrylic glass, which is often described as a an art print on plexiglass, transforms your original into lovely décor and makes a distinct alternative option to dibond or canvas fine art prints. Your own copy of the work of art is being custom-made with the help of state-of-the-art UV printing machines. It makes deep, intense color shades.

What does the The Metropolitan Museum of Art write about the work of art created by Willem Kalf? (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

The Chinese porcelain bowl and Turkish carpet in this still life would both have been luxurious imports, here nonchalantly placed with wine and fruit on a wooden table. The bowl, a lemon peel spilling over its lip, balances on a piece of bread, animating the static arrangement of the objects. According to Gerard de Lairesse, a painter and writer of the next generation, Kalf "surpassed others in still life," although "he never . . . knew how to explain his images, why he depicted this or that, but simply [painted] whatever took his fancy."

In 1659 Willem Kalf made this baroque work of art with the title Still Life with Fruit, Glassware, and a Wanli Bowl. The 360 year old work of art was made with the size - 23 x 20 in (58,4 x 50,8 cm) and was painted on the medium oil on canvas. Furthermore, the artwork is included in the The Metropolitan Museum of Art's digital art collection. With courtesy of - The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Maria DeWitt Jesup Fund, 1953 (public domain). Also, the artwork has the following creditline: Maria DeWitt Jesup Fund, 1953.
