Our portrait canvas is made of 100% of original cotton which has a very smooth texture and close weave. Perfect for paintings require a lot of details. Double fill refers to two threads being twisted together to make this canvas stronger, more durable thread. Every artwork surface varnished with semi-gloss acrylic coating to enhance appearance, brushstrokes are more clearly defined, more details apparent. The coating also protects and preserves the artwork from dirt and dust, extending its lifetime and keeps it from fading.
Giclee prints are created typically using professional 8-Color to 12-Color ink-jet printers. These modern technology printers are capable of producing incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets.
The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
Giclee prints are advantageous to artists who do not find it feasible to mass produce their work, but want to reproduce their art as needed, or on-demand. Especially for artwork with fine textures, it represents the details very well, makes perfect reproductions of masterpieces.
Vincent van Gogh was primarily a self-taught artist. He started his career copying prints and studying drawing manuals with the belief that a great painter had to first master drawing. He created over 1,000 drawings, 150 watercolors, 10 graphic works, 9 lithographs and an etching, not to mention his 900+ paintings in his short career.

Van Gogh has influenced generations of young artists worldwide since his time. Today we can see his impact in painting, in poetry, in song and in video.
