Classic with nails: See here how we varnish, stretch and handcraft a Dutch Art Giclée Canvas Reproduction in our unique style classic with nails. After stretching the Giclée canvas print on 2 cm thick stretcher bars, we finish the sides of this reproduction of Ice Scene by Hendrick Avercamp in a traditional way; we use custom-made nails and hammer them in by hand for that old fashioned look.


Giclée printing: Our reproductions are printed on museum-quality canvas of 380g. We use a Giclée print technique that guarantees over 100 years of colour permanence. The HDR inks are sprayed on the canvas layer by layer, with 800 nozzles per colour x 10 channels for a total of 8000 nozzles.

Varnish: We then apply several coats of varnish by hand to make the colours come to life and to protect against moisture and UV light. The canvas is stretched by hand on stretcher bars made with timber from sustainable forestry.

Want to save on shipping costs? We can also deliver your canvas unstretched, rolled-up and placed in a tube for shipping. See here how we package your reproduction. For more information and prices contact us.

Ice Scene

This reproduction on canvas of Ice Scene by Hendrick Avercamp is made in cooperation with the Mauritshuis Museum, where the original painting is hanging. This is a typically Dutch scene. Everyone is out on the ice after a couple of days of hard frost. You see a frozen village canal edged with farms, windmills and a haystack. In the distance behind the liftbridge, you can just make out the town, despite the mist. It's busy on the ice. Everyone is enjoying themselves; young and old, rich and poor. People are skating, sledging and playing a game called 'kolf', a forerunner of today's ice hockey. But wintertime is not all fun and games. Work goes on as well. On the left, a woman is doing the washing in an ice floe. The water must be freezing cold.

A little further on an old man is carrying an enormous bale of straw. The winter brings dangers too. On the far left a couple of people have fallen through the ice but somebody is already running up with a ladder to save them. Just in front of the bridge, some people have slipped over. The woman has fallen in such an unfortunate position that you can see her bare bottom. This icy scene filled with stories is by Hendrick Avercamp, a deaf painter from the city of Kampen. Despite his handicap he trained as a painter and was the first Dutch painter to specialize in winter landscapes – with great success.
