Westminster Abbey West Towers - London Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

This London canvas print features the Westminster Abbey West Towers. These old Medieval Gothic churches are truly the work of generations. King Henry III had the old Abbey church pulled down in 1245. The West Towers, however, weren't completed until 1745! There had already been restoration work done on other parts of Westminster Abbey in the intervening years. Even by Medieval standards that is a long time even for a building as grand as this one. That is to say it was not an active construction site for all those years.

I think one of the bigger achievements is that Westminster Abbey looks cohesive. The succession of builders that worked on the Abbey respected the original plans and each addition or restoration was made in an effort to be sympathetic with what had come before. And while the Abbey looks beautiful from all directions, it's the West Towers of Westminster Abbey that most caught my eye. The way the towers reach towards heaven, the rich details and symmetry. It's an amazing sight to see in person which I hope is captured in this London canvas art print. If you need a sense of scale, look at the people on the sidewalk going towards the entrance!

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.
