  • Printed poster (canvas material): Our poster is a printed sheet of flat canvas with a slight surface structure. A poster print is used for putting your art copy using a personal frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm round about the painting to facilitate the framing.
  • The acrylic glass print (with real glass coating on top): An print on acrylic glass, which is often referenced as a UV print on plexiglass, will turn the original work of art into beautiful décor and offers a good alternative option to canvas and dibond fine art prints. The work of art is manufactured with the help of modern UV printing technology.

Important information: We try our best to depict the products as accurate as we can and to demonstrate them visually on the various product detail pages. Nonetheless, the tone of the printed materials and the printing might differ to a certain extent from the image on the device's monitor. Depending on the screen settings and the nature of the surface, not all colors will be printed one hundret percent realistically. Given that all our art reproductions are printed and processed manually, there might as well be minor differences in the exact position and the size of the motif.

Supplementary description from the museum (© - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - www.metmuseum.org)

In 1861 the marine painter William Bradford made the first of his eight expeditions to the Arctic. This painting, based on photographs and sketches produced during his final trip, in 1869, shows the artist’s steamer, Panther, plying its way through the summer ice along the northern coast of Greenland. Panther was one of numerous vessels engaged in the search for the Northwest Passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. According to Bradford’s journal, the ship’s crew had decided to hunt the polar bear seen in the foreground, “anxious to possess so fine a skin,” but the bear made a parting glance over its shoulder before heading for the water, managing to escape its pursuers.
