Owl Canvas Art Prints

The use of canvas as a medium for works of art has been popular since antiquity. The Roman author Pliny the Elder, who lived from 23AD to 79 AD referred in his writings to a portait of the emperor Nero which was painted on a canvas of more than 30 metres (equivalent to 98.42 feet) in dimension. However, few canvas paintings prior to the 14th century have been preserved, mainly because, prior to that time, canvas was mostly just used for inconsequential subjects like flags or festive decorations. Their relative lack of noteworthiness determined that they did not survive over the centuries.

One particular work of art on canvas which has been preserved over the ages is a french oil painting known as a Madonna with angels which was painted around 1410 and is now kept in the Gemaldegalerie in Berlin. As well as being early days for a canvas work of art, this is also an early date for an oil painting. Still at that time the most popular method continued to be to paint on wood panels until the 16th century in Italy and the 17th century in the North of Europe.

Amongst those who led the change from wood panel painting to canvas artistry were a renaissance painter from Northern Italy called Andrea Mantegna and other Ventetian artists. They had at their disposal the canvas used for Venetian sails which they considered to be the very best quality. They put the canvas to use as a base on which to paint their art and a whole new fashion began.

From the Renaissance period onwards the use of canvas became evermore popular, such that it can be considered to be one of the biggest successes in the history of painting. In places like 16th century Venice, canvas surpassed painting on plaster for being more resistant to the cold and humidity of winter.

But the main comparative advantage of canvas as opposed to both previous mediums at the time (wall and wood panel paintings) is its lightness of weight, which enables it to be easily transported and also allows large sized paintings to be created with lighter supports. In this way, its acceptance expanded. Somewhat ironically it is these advantages which also allowed painted art to become war booty, as happened with the taking of the castle of Prague by the Swedish in 1648, during the Thirty Years War, the plundering of Italian paintings by the Napoleonic armies and the theft of paintings by Nazi troops during the second world war.

Thanks to its longevity, durabilty and portability, canvas continues to be the most favoured base for painting and art prints like the lovely owls on this page. For prints in particular, canvas gives a special true-art quality which brings a print as close as possible to an actual original work of fine art.
