These are lithographs, replicas on thick 100% cotton canvas, the same canvas used by painters to paint oil paintings. Each sheet has been handmade from start to finish by the painter to faithfully reproduce all the richness of colour and texture of the original oil painting. Printed on an Epson 9900, a large format plotter considered the best machine in the world for the production of prints.
BUILT TO LAST
Unlike most of the reproductions on the market, Manuel Sosa's prints are subject to a rigorous manufacturing process in his studio that guarantees the perpetuity of the colours for more than a century, according to laboratory tests. To this end, 12 special or "museum" pigments are used, and not the 4 used in traditional printing, which are ultra-resistant to ultraviolet light and remain unchanged over time, like the original oil paint. They are basically "liquid oils". Any film from a traditional printing press will see its colours fade in months. Manuel Sosa's prints resist time as well as the original, because they are printed with the same chemical components that we find in oil paint tubes.

No. The choice of a frame is a very personal thing according to the decoration of each home. Any "Marquetry" will offer you this service, with multiple frames to choose from. Many customers prefer to mount them on a wooden frame and hang them as they are.
All the reproductions are signed in oil by the author and varnished by hand to improve their protection. They have a white margin of about three centimetres on each side so that they can be stretched on a wooden frame if desired. They are shipped rolled up in a sturdy cardboard tube.
Question: Hello Manuel, received on the day of the date, everything perfect. You can count on one more customer.
One question I would like to ask you as an expert: given its characteristics, would you advise framing it with or without glass?
Answer: In the old days I also printed on paper and in this case it was essential to frame them with glass.
Canvas prints, like yours, are designed to be marked like any original oil painting, using the white margin to be stretched over a wooden frame by the marquet maker. It is then stretched like a drum and can be framed or unframed. The canvas is also protected by a very professional varnish that protects it from ultraviolet radiation, so it can be exposed to the sun for years without being damaged and any small dirt can be cleaned with a simple damp cloth. Canvases, framed in this way, are hardly distinguishable from the original and show their full beauty. To put glass on it would make it look very unattractive and is completely unnecessary.

Answer: Thank you very much for your advice and the corresponding explanation. Indeed, I think it would be appropriate for future customers to give you this information, the reason for asking your advice is that indeed, it looks so real...that a glass would take away the quality, the temptation to "touch" the relief is imminent. I can't imagine seeing the painting and reflections on a glass.
