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 Narcissus by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio 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.

Narcissus

This reproduction on canvas of Narcissus by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio is made with the greatest possible care to ensure that the colours are very close to the original painting. Narcissus shows the Greek myth about the beautiful man Narcissus who, whilst walking in the forest, falls in love with his reflection in a pond. However, every time he reaches out to his reflection, it disappears. He pines away beside the pond, unable te embrace his reflection, and eventually dies. Caravaggio portrays Narcissus hunched over the pond, his hand cupping the water possibly in an attempt to embrace his reflection.

As we see more often in Caravaggio’s work, the background of the painting is dark, whereas Narcissus is bathed in light, almost like an actor in a play. He has a look of melancholy on his face, almost as if he knows the impossibility of his desire.
