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 Self-Portrait by Vincent van Gogh 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.

Self-Portrait

This reproduction on canvas of Self-Portrait by Vincent van Gogh is made in close cooperation with the Krӧller-Müller Museum, where the original painting is hanging in the Van Gogh Gallery. In February 1886, Vincent van Gogh goes to live with his brother Theo in Paris. There he meets painters like Camille Pissarro, Paul Gauguin and Emile Bernard. Inspired by their work, he begins experimenting with different styles and with bright, light colours. Vincent wants to become a portrait painter and make enough money to make a living out of this. Because he didn't have enough money to pay for models, he painted a lot of self-portraits.

'Because if I can manage to paint the coloration of my own head, which is not without presenting some difficulty, I'll surely be able to paint the heads of the other fellows and women as well'. For Van Gogh a portrait must express something of the subject's emotional state. In this self-portrait the colours are fairly subdued, it is dominated by soft blue and green tints. The rapid brushstrokes are exuberant and give this self-portrait a lively and dynamic character.
