Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which means that it is quite simple to hang your Canvas print without the help of additional wall-mounts. That is why, a canvas print is suitable for any kind of wall.
  • Print on glossy acrylic glass: A glossy acrylic glass print, which is sometimes labelled as a UV print on plexiglass, will change the original work of art into great wall decoration. With a glossy acrylic glass art print contrasts and small details will be more identifiable with the help of the delicate tonal gradation of the print.
  • Printed poster on canvas material: The poster print is a UV printed flat canvas with a slight surface structure. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin between 2-6 cm round about the print to facilitate the framing.

Original artwork description from the museum's website (© - Rijksmuseum - Rijksmuseum)

According to tradition, the surgeon of Admiral van Nes was keelhauled: this was a severe punishment whereby the condemned man was dragged beneath the ship’s keel on a rope. It served as a terrible warning to all mariners. Hundreds of men are eagerly watching the spectacle. Some are pointing at the surgeon, who hangs from the foremast of the warship, hand and feet bound, as he is hoisted overboard.
