How did Oosterwyck most break the mold? Very few women were professional artists during the 1600s. She did not follow the traditional pattern seen with most women artists in history who either had a father, uncle or husband who worked as an artist. This connection often proved necessary given that women were generally not permitted to study in art schools or work in artists’ studios as independent artists. Kept out of artistic institutions, only familial access opened side doors which allowed women to cross the threshold of the art world. In addition to being a talented painter, she was also a savvy businesswoman. She chose to remain single to devote her life to art.
Print on canvas fabric with wood poster hanger. Solid walnut or White Oak pieces are compressed together by vintage brass ball thumb screws to securely hold the top and bottom of the print. Easy to hang with brass ring and your choice of twine.
+ Solid Brass Hardware holds prints more securely then magnets. Brass ring prevents twine from wearing and breaking.
+ Walnut and white oak wood are sourced from sustainably managed forests.
+ Print and assembled poster hanger are shipped together but the print is not installed to avoid damage to the print. Installing the print is easy and no tools are required. Simply unscrew the thumb screws from the posts and insert the print edge in between the wood rails at top and bottom. Tighten the screws and your print is ready to hang.
+ Walnut is sealed with hemp oil and white oak is unfinished. I don't use stain, paint or varnish to finish the wood to allow the unique and beautiful qualities of each to shine through. Please note that walnut and white oak are natural materials and so there may be varitions to wood grain and tone. Walnut ranges in tone from medium warm brown to dark brown and white oak ranges from a light neutral brown to tan color. See second to last photo for options.
+ Includes your choice of hemp, black or bakers twine with brass ring for hanging. If you do not choose a twine, hemp is the default option. See last photo for options.
+ 17" x 22" size in Walnut is pictured with Hemp Twine.
+ shipped in 100% plastic free packaging - cardboard box, tissue paper, kraft paper and kraft paper tape with cornstarch adhesive.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you make your poster hangers with brass hardware instead of magnets?
Gluing metal to wood is notoriously difficult and requires some heavy duty toxic glue to get them to stay firmly in place. Even then the magnets are not likely to stay glued as wood is a natural material that expands and contracts with the heat and moisture. Eventually they will fall out and then all you are left with are some sticks! Additionally, magnets can lose their strength over time. Brass hardware will never fail.
I do not offer wholesale as I find that business model works best for mass produced goods and my products are not mass produced! I am a one person shop so I prefer to offer my best price all the time to everyone.
