House Of The Seven Gables - Black And White Salem Canvas Print
This black and white Salem canvas print features the historic House Of The Seven Gables. This Salem landmark was made famous by Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel, The House of the Seven Gables. Built in 1668 Colonial Massachusetts, the building was already old in Hawthorne's time. In fact, the house had been remodeled and added on to several times by the time the book was written and, in fact, no longer had seven gables. Hawthorne's inspiration was its historical appearance rather than the way it looked in his time. In the 20th century there were attempts to restore the appearance of the House of the Seven Gables to be more in line with Hawthorne's depiction in his novel of the same name.
Regardless of history and whether or not the house looks exactly as it did, I found it to be an amazing place to visit. There's a real presence to the structure and the light of a sunny winter day really made for a striking black and white canvas print.

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.
