Stretched Canvas

Museum Heavy Duty Stretched Canvas

Museum is the canvas of choice for artists who want their work to look its best. Made from only the best materials. Museum gives you true gallery quality. Each canvas is stretched by hand for optimum tension.

The corners tailor for a neat finish without cutting the canvas which can compromise the ability to re-stretch the work without tearing. Unbleached cotton is used in Museum Canvases as it is stronger than its unbleached counterpart.

Heavy duty refers to the depth of the stretcher bar, which the canvas has been stretched around. Heavy duty - 1.5” deep x 2” edge.

This range is suitable for larger work up to 84”; the 1.5” profile is especially suited for unframed art work.
