  • Poster print on canvas material: The Artprinta poster is a printed canvas paper with a granular surface structure. It is best suited for placing your art replica using a custom-made frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin between 2-6cm around the print in order to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond: Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an outstanding depth. For our Direct Aluminium Dibond print, we print the artwork onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite. This direct print on Aluminum Dibond is one of the most popular entry-level products and is an extremely sophisticated way to display fine art prints, as it puts 100% of the viewer’s attention on the whole artwork.
  • The canvas print: The canvas print is a printed cotton canvas stretched on a wood stretcher. Furthermore, a printed canvas generates a cosy and comfortable feeling. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight. This means, it is easy to hang your Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. Therefore, a canvas print is suitable for all types of walls.
  • The acrylic glass print: An print on acrylic glass, often referenced as a an art print on plexiglass, will change the artwork into wonderful décor and offers a great alternative to dibond and canvas art prints. The artwork is made with the help of modern UV direct print machines. The great advantage of an acrylic glass print is that sharp contrasts and small artwork details become visible with the help of the very fine gradation of the print.

What does the website of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art state about the 19th century work of art created by James Abbott McNeill Whistler? (© Copyright - Los Angeles County Museum of Art - www.lacma.org)

Living an expatriate existence, James McNeil Whistler worked primarily in Europe, first in France, then in England. Yet, he was the single most influential American artist of the nineteenth century, not only in Europe, but also in the United States. His achievement lies at the heart of the late nineteenth-century Aesthetic movement, which prized the idea of "art for art's sake." His argument that art is neither didactic nor natural was a necessary prelude for the development of the radical modernist movements of the twentieth century, primarily abstraction. No American artist of any stature after the Civil War escaped his influence. Whether landscapes, seascapes, or figure studies, Whistler's paintings are marked by his attention to the visual effects of the surface, in particular, by great variations in glazing and texture. The subject matter is often secondary, a point that he calls attention to by titling the paintings with musical terms (Nocturnes) or abstract color phrases (most famously, the portrait of his mother is Arrangement in Grey and Black). The majority of his subjects are women, elements of an ongoing investigation of what constituted the concept of the "beautiful." While many were commissioned portraits, Whistler also used young working class women selected for the pictorial effect, in what the eighteenth century called "fancy pictures." Blue and Coral: The Little Blue Bonnet is a fancy picture from the end of Whistler's career and represents his mature style. It is the largest of his oval portraits and is one of his most finished works from this period. Whistler was an experimental artist even late in life. Many of his paintings were executed thinly, in glazes, as in The Little Bonnet. The costume is deliberately sketchy — the sitter's body and hat are depicted for their colors rather than for any accuracy of detail. Her face, on the other hand, is quite fully rendered and emerges out of the dark tones of the picture with great delicacy. This balance of the human interest of the subject and the purely abstract effects of tone and texture is the hallmark of Whistler's most successful portraits. Whistler is also represented in the museum by over 150 of his famous etchings and lithographs. View more works by Whistler in LACMA's collection.
