How can I check the size of the artwork?
The dimensions of the painting are specified on the artwork page, indicated in centimeters. If you want to know the dimensions in other lengths, there are div. find converters on the internet. Any further questions, or would you like to receive a calculation from me? Please feel free to contact me!
Is the image on the site an accurate representation of the artwork?
The image is an accurate representation of the artwork, but has no contract value (the color reproduction of your screen may differ slightly). There are high-quality color photos on this website that give you a very good impression of the actual painting. The detailing and stratification of course only come into their own in reality. Feel free to view the feedback from art collectors. They tell me that the work is even more beautiful in real life!
Does the painting need to be framed?
All my paintings are ready to hang. The sides of my paintings are painted in the same shades as the work itself. This gives a beautiful spatial effect. A solid professional suspension system has been installed in the frame.
