St. Paul's Cathedral Dome - London Canvas Print
This London canvas print features a mixed media painting of St. Paul's Cathedral Dome. This London landmark has stood for generations. It was constructed in the late 17th century following the fire of 1666 which destroyed much of London including the predecessor to the current cathedral. The dome was the crowning achievement of architect Sir Christopher Wren. But it was controversial in his time. It was unlike other English architecture of its day and some considered it "too Catholic" for their taste. So determined was Wren he had much of the dome built under wraps and out of sight. Today it's truly hard to imagine the London skyline without St. Paul's Cathedral dome.
The artwork on this square format canvas art captures a brightly lit day with sunlight illuminating the lines of the dome and all its details. A beautiful choice of prints that is suited for Anglophiles, people who love London, and of course those of us who admire brilliant architecture.

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.
