This London canvas print features a Peter's Hill view of St. Paul's Cathedral. This approach to St. Paul's from the river used to be known as St. Peter's Steps and prior to the blitz of World War II would have been a much different landscape from what I've heard. This area was still the London of Charles Dickens' day up until much of it was bombed. The image of the dome of St. Paul's rising from the smoke is still a powerful image all these years later. I wonder how different this view would be without the war?
London is not a static city. Despite it's tourist trade, it's a living breathing place that continues to build alongside the old. So whatever might have been, the approach to the 17th century is filled with the modern. And that contrast is one of the things I personally love about London. When St. Paul's Cathedral was built, it was cutting edge. So it seems fitting that it should be surrounded by modern architecture. At least that's my take on it.
This view up Peter's Hill is a slice of London. From the architecture to the crowds enjoying a sunny day to take in the sights. Maybe this canvas art reminds you of your own time in London?

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!

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.
