This creates impressive, rich color hues. With an acrylic glass art print contrasts as well as small artwork details become identifiable thanks to the delicate gradation.
  • Poster (canvas material): Our poster print is a printed canvas with a slightly rough finish on the surface, which reminds the original work of art. A poster print is best suited for placing your art copy using a personal frame. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin 2-6cm round about the painting in order to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
  • Canvas print: A UV printed canvas mounted on a wooden frame. Your printed canvas of this artwork will give you the chance to transform your into a large artwork like you would see in a gallery. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is easy to hang up your Canvas print without the support of additional wall-mounts. Therefore, canvas prints are suited for all types of walls.
  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): An Aluminium Dibond print is a print material with a true effect of depth - for a modern impression and non-reflective surface structure. The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the excellent introduction to fine art prints with aluminum. For the Aluminium Dibond option, we print your selected artwork onto the surface of the aluminum material. The direct print on aluminium is the most popular entry-level product and is a contemporary way to display fine art reproductions, as it puts 100% of the viewer’s attention on the artwork.

Important information: We try the best we can to describe our art products as accurately as we can and to display them visually. At the same time, the tone of the printed materials, as well as the print result might diverge to a certain extent from the image on your device's screen. Depending on the screen settings and the quality of the surface, color pigments can unfortunately not be printed as exactly as the digital version shown here. Given that all art prints are printed and processed by hand, there might as well be slight discrepancies in the motif's exact position and the size.

According to the myth, Prince Paris was asked by Mercury to choose which of the three goddesses, Juno, Minerva or Venus, was the most beautiful.

Paris is here seen lying on the left, having just been awakened by Mercury after a dream, and the three goddesses are standing naked before him. Each of them has individually promised him a gift if the choice falls on her. Juno has promised him power and Minerva success as a warrior, while Venus promised him the most beautiful woman on earth.

The wrong choice The choice has not yet been made in the picture, but we know from the myth that Paris chose Venus and thus physical love. This had terrible consequences. Among the things resulting from it was the Trojan War. So Prince Paris made the wrong choice.

The motif One of the goddesses is staring at the viewer. She is forcing him to make the choice that has not yet been made in the picture and which therefore remains open. The viewer, who of course knows the outcome of the story, is thus encouraged to make a different choice from the wrong one made by Paris. The goddess’ gaze thus emphasises the situation of choice.
