Nathaniel Hawthorne Birthplace - Historic Salem Canvas Print
This historic Salem canvas print features a brilliant view of the Nathaniel Hawthorne birthplace. This home was originally located at 27 Union Street in Salem, Massachusetts. In 1958 it was moved to its current location adjacent to The House of Seven Gables, a house made famous by Hawthorne's novel of that name. Hawthorne's birthplace was a home built by his grandfather sometime between 1730 and 1745. It's a pretty classic Georgian style of architecture with its symmetrical arrangement of doors and windows. Nathaniel Hawthorne was born on the second floor on July 4th in 1804 surrounded by extended family who shared the home. The future author spent the first four years of his life in this Salem home until his family moved upon his father's death.
This artwork was inspired by my visit to Salem years ago. It was a sunny winter afternoon and the bare tree branches traced their shadows in the bright warm sunlight. I have always loved the combination of cold winter blue and warm light. There's something warm and comforting about it. Do you agree?

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.
