Artistic Canvas (unframed) VS Artisanal Museum Warp on Fine Wood

A an oil painting is created on canvas. The canvas is made out of linen or other cloth material. It does not have a board or a frame on the back in its natural form. It looks something like a thick blanket. 

 

An oil painting can be shipped in 2 ways.

 

1 - artistic canvas with the painting rolled up in a tube

Its just a loose canvas without the skeleton frame on the back. Its rolled up carefully and placed into a hard tube. such method is the safest and the most economical way to transport an artwork. We provide free shipping for this method all over the globe. The size of the package is small and it does not take much space . This decreases the chances of outside damage almost to 0. The paint will not crack or get damaged in any way as well. Please refer to the photos below for more details

 

2 - Artisanal Museum Warp on Fine Wood

When a canvas is stretched ,its mounted onto a wooden skeleton frame just like in the image below. The staples are not visible and are present only on the on the rear side. The sides of the painting are painted so it can be hung as it is without a decorative frame. The painting does not need a hanging wire, the middle of the top stretcher bar can be hung onto a longer nail or screw, longer paintings can be hung with 2 screws or nails .  We use the best fine wood for the frames. The frames are hand made by specialist carpenters and a lot more  durable and resistent than stadard stretcher bars.  Our frames always withstand shipping to far destinations and chnages in the enviorment. This kind of frame will last for a very long time. 

 

You can add stretching to a painting during checkout, right before you click “add to cart” . You have an option called “painting”. There you will find 2 options “Artistic Canvas (Most Popular Choice ) Free” and “Artisanal Museum Warp on Fine Wood” . If you forgot to order stretching during checkout, you can add it here.

I already have 4 paintings of Leonid Afremov and I can't describe the joy they bring. It is a sheer delight to the eye simply staring at them. They possess a depth and an incredible power, for each of them tells a story so truthful and brilliant that you are submerged in it.Thank you Mr. Afremov for your talent and for the amazing feeling you incorporate in your works!
