Just before Christmas we received notification of a new canvas from one of our favourite manufactures, Hahnemühle. This tied in nicely as we were looking to improve our canvas range at the time. Daguerre is a beautiful canvas, but it isn’t perfect — a reason why we introduced Leonardo last year — heavy blacks have never sat perfectly on it’s surface coating and stretching its 400gsm weight over our frames isn’t always straightforward. With Art Canvas Smooth, Hahnemühle have solved these issues and produced a fantastic canvas, ideal for fine art reproductions.
Art Canvas Smooth has a natural white surface, it’s warmer surface produces a perfectly coloured print with strong colours and deep blacks without any blocking or loss in detail.
It is a 370gsm canvas, the lighter weight making it much easier to stretch on to our conservation quality stretcher frames, giving you a better quality finish every time.
We’re really pleased with Art Canvas Smooth and we’re introducing it as a replacement to Daguerre from today. If you’d like a free sample, please reply with your address and we’ll put one in the post to you.
