Gerstaecker Studio XL Stretched Block Canvases
1. Rectangular formats
2. Square formats
Gerstaecker Studio XL Stretched Block Canvases stand out for their deep profile of 45 x 45mm. They are ideal for gouache, oil, acrylic and tempera.
Gerstaecker Studio XL Stretched Block Canvases are 380gsm, 100% cotton. They are primed with a low-absorbency universal primer. As the canvas is stapled to the back of the frame you can include the sides in your artwork should you so wish. The frame is made from high quality wood from sustainable forests and the profile is in one single piece, in contrast to other frames of this size where the profiles can consist of 2 pieces glued together. This gives our Studio XL range complete solidity and optimal stability.
Gerstaecker Studio XL Stretched Block Canvases can easily be hung without further framing due to the stability of the thick stretchers. Sizes larger than 80cm have a support bar for increased strength, and from 80cm x 80cm there is a strengthening cross-support.
Price per canvas or pack of 2 or 3.
I ordered three and they were all delivered damaged. The next dleivery, one was clearly damaged, so I refused the whole delivery.
The last three were in one piece.
These have been excellent canvases; strong, true, taut canvas.
I like the 4.5cm depth on this size as well.
So, I will probbaly buy more in the future and be ready for some damaged ones.
Quality control needs to improve as boxes were clearly damaged and when you pulled back the damaged cardboard you could see the 'cut' in the canvases easliy.
I really hope Great Art are able to revert to a better manufacturer, because these canvases are no longer suitable for professional artists.
I put this down to bad luck and re-ordered 4 frames this year. One month later and several phone calls the canvases arrived poorly packed, subsequently damaged the ones which were not damaged were poorly stretched and very badly put together. Consequently I am now late producing a commission.
