William Turner: Painting "The Fighting Temeraire" (1838/39) in a frame

So passes away world glory: HMS Temeraire was a ship with 98 cannons, used during the Trafalgar battle. Here Turner shows it tugged by a steamer to the shipbreaking yard in the explosive red shades of the sinking sun.

Original: Oil on canvas, National Gallery, London. 

The giclée edition presented here was created in the famous Dietz print-shop directly on high-quality real art canvas of 100% cotton. Subsequently, the canvas is traditionally stretched on a wedge frame. So, in case of possible fluctuations of room temperature and air humidity, it can be re-tensioned. A high-quality framing rounds out perfectly the aspect. This picture is serially numbered on the backside. 

Dietz giclée edition on real art canvas. Limited to 990 exemplars, in high-quality solid wood framing, Format 88 x 68 cm.

English oil and watercolour painter (1775-1851). He painted mainly landscapes, history paintings and seascapes.

From a young age William Turner reached the highest technical perfection and was considered one of the most important artists of Great Britain appointed to the Royal Academy, and nine years later he was one of their members.

Experimentation with new techniques and the intensive study of Goethe's colour theory solved together with extensive travels for Turner is an important change of style. Boldly he left the established rules of pictorial tradition and subject realism and devoted himself intensively to the effects of light and movement.

For its completely new painting Turner received much criticism. But his close observation of nature and the flowing light in the paintings of the great romantic paved the way for the Impressionists and for the development of modern painting.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.

The mental attitude which spilled over from literature and philosophy to visual arts, established in about 1800 but which failed to produce its own style in visual arts.

The art of Romanticism was determined by content, relevant attitude to life and the sensations triggered by it. Inwardness and feelings, imagination and dream, world and nature, the power of myth and striving into infinity became central themes. The specific area of Romantic art lies in the painting and drawing. The landscape, as a theme that is constanly turned to, always moves to the forefront: man and nature are in relationship with each other, reflect the moods. Besides a new nature feeling there was a renewal of the religious attitude and a return to the past, tradition, history, old legends, fairy tales, as well as to the art of old masters and epochs. Especially in the case of Germany these was strongly national-oriented art.

Main representatives in Germany include among others: C.D. Friedrich, P.O. Runge, J.A. Koch, M. v. Schwind, and also the Nazarene group of artists. French Romanticism, which was characterized by other trends than the German, is represented mainly by the art of Delacroix.

The Romantic period lasted until around 1830.
