Giclée printing: Watch the video
We print the reproductions on museum-quality canvas of 380g. Printing a Giclée is done with the utmost precision. 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. This technique guarantees over 100 years of colour permanence. The end result is characterized by great fineness and image depth, very high sharpness, detail and deep colours.

Varnish: Watch the video
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.

About the original artwork
Young Sick Bacchus

This reproduction on canvas of Young Sick Bacchus by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio is made with the greatest possible care to ensure that the colours are very close to the original painting. The Young Sick Bacchus is an early self-portrait by Caravaggio, painted around 1593. We can recognise Bacchus, the god of wine and festivity, by the crown of ivy leaves on his head. This was a sacred plant, believed to prevent him from intoxication. However, Bacchus does not look as festive as he is normally portrayed. When Caravaggio painted this work he had just moved to Rome, but was struck by illness which incapacitated him for six months. It was most likely that he made this self-portrait during his illness.

This is shown by the yellowish color of Bacchus’ skin and white of the eye, his blueish lips and the decaying grapes he holds. However, his sensual pose and the presence of ripe peaches and grapes, indicates that a possible recovery lies ahead.
