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.

View of Delft
This reproduction on canvas of View of Delft by Johannes Vermeer is made in cooperation with the Mauritshuis Museum, where the original painting is hanging. Johannes Vermeer is a Dutch painter from the 17th century. He was baptized in 1632 in Delft and he was buried there in 1675. He is especially famous for his use of natural light. He painted meticulous compositions of interiors featuring one or two figures, mostly women. These are intimate genre paintings in which the subject is engaged in some everyday activity, usually in the light of a nearby window on the left. Vermeer could render the way light plays on objects like few others. In View of Delft, Vermeers emphasis is not on people, but on the architecture of his hometown.
His masterful representation of light and air is also reflected in this painting. As far as we know, Vermeer made no self-portraits. But in this painting it looks like he shows aspects of his personal life. For instance, he sheds light on the Nieuwe Kerk, where he was baptized. Also you can just see the tip of the Oude Kerk, where he was buried. In addition to this cityscape, only 35 other works by Vermeer are known, of which the Milkmaid and the Girl with a Pearl Earring are the most famous.
