Chicago River - Skyscraper Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

This skyscraper canvas print features a portion of the Chicago River. It seems appropriate for a skyscraper print to feature Chicago since many consider this city the birthplace of the skyscraper. Of course, many of those early skyscrapers were diminutive compared to those of today. This Chicago river artwork actually features a range of architecture from quite modern to historic. Also fitting for a city with a long architectural pedigree.

This artwork on this canvas print is based on a photo I took during one of my visits to the Windy City. What attracted me to this scene was the mix of light with skyscrapers casting shadows. It reminded me of a sort of urban corollary to a river valley with surrounding mountains.

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.

Canvas Print Detail Sample

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.
