    About This Print

    Visiting Venice with his wife in 1908 for three months in a bid to overcome a bout of depression Monet was overwhelmed by the beauty of the city, claiming its ‘splendid sunsets are unique in the world'. The work, not completed until four years later in the artist's Giverny studio, shows the view of San Giorgio Maggiore Island at dusk. The island's church is silhouetted against the backdrop of a sunset above the sea. The sky is filled with colour as deep reds merge into orange and then dark blue with the same colours reflected in the sea. Unlike similar works, which study the effects of shifting light patterns, Monet here sought to capture a moment of personal significance, with the painting forming a souvenir of his time in the city.

    In the Design Studio

    We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

    Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

    In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

    Measuring Up

    After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

    Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

    We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

    Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

    Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

    The Last Stop

    In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

    Mounting the Prints

    The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

    Laying the Glass

    Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

    The Final Product

    After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

    Transferring to Canvas

    For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

    Finishing the Canvas Edging

    As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
