The Windmill - London Soho Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

The subject of this London Soho canvas print is "The Windmill." I stumbled over this sight on my last night in London years ago. I was wandering around Piccadilly Circus and this bright red glow caught my eyes. And I guess as you can see from the sign, it makes the term "red light district" rather literal. I didn't know anything about the history of The Windmill International at the time. It turns out the club opened in the 1930's and was known for not closing even during the Blitz.

Originally known as The Windmill Theatre, the strip club on Great Windmill Street lasted for nearly 90 years but has been closed in recent years with plans to renovate and reopen as a cocktail club. As it stands, this London canvas art print depicts a little bit of London history in Soho.

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.
