Big Ben Clock - Unique London Canvas Print
The subject of this unique London canvas print is the brilliant Gothic Revival architecture of the "Big Ben" clock tower. This amazing piece of Victorian engineering must be among the most recognizable buildings in the world while at the same time no one ever seems to call it by its proper name. As any Anglophile can tell you "Big Ben" is the name given to the main bell. The tower itself in recent years was named for Queen Elizabeth II. But that hasn't stopped anyone from looking at the clock tower and saying, "Look kids, Big Ben, Parliament..."
This unique canvas art highlights the architecture of the tower itself and its towering presence over Westminster Bridge. This image was based on photos from one of my trips to London where, following a race of some sort, the bridge was open to pedestrians instead of cars. That provided a somewhat different perspective of the bridge.
The colors of this canvas print are somewhat muted compared to my other work but I loved the vintage style it gives this "Big Ben" clock artwork.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
