Europa & the Bull
Print on canvas with wood hanging frame. Solid walnut or white oak pieces are compressed together by solid brass ball thumb screws and posts to securely hold the top and bottom of the print. Easy to hang on an included single brass head nail.
+ Solid brass hardware holds prints more securely than magnets. Brass hardware has a vintage patina and is antiqued in small batches with apple cider vinegar.
+ Raw walnut and raw white oak does not have any kind finish so the natural beauty of the wood can shine through. Walnut is finished with organic hemp oil and beeswax. Black Oak is oak wood ebonized with India Ink and finished with organic hemp oil and beeswax. India ink is 100% carbon pigment and completely non-toxic and has zero impact on the environment, unlike water based stains or paints. All wood is sourced from sustainably managed forests.
+ Hang with hemp twine or cork strap. Both included, along with brass rings and a brass head nail. Cork strap colors to choose from are: natural cork, dark brown or black. Cork is a vegan and environmentally friendly alternative to leather. Cork is soft, strong, beautiful and sustainable as harvesting cork does not damage the tree in any way.
+ "Canvas Only No Frame" option is for the canvas print only without the wood hanging frame.
Prints are printed on 370gsm art canvas. I use high quality canvas that will not yellow over time as it does not contain optical brighteners and is acid-free and age resistant according to ISO 9706 (museum standard according to galleries and museum’s longevity requirements).
+ Canvas and wood hanging frame are shipped together but the canvas is not installed to avoid damage to the canvas. Installing the canvas is easy and no tools are required. Simply unscrew the thumb screws from the posts and insert the canvas edge in between the wood rails at top and bottom. Tighten the screws and your canvas is ready to hang. Print is held by the wood below the screws and posts and is not damaged at all.
+ 17" x 24" Raw Walnut + Canvas is pictured with Dark Brown cork strap.
+ shipped in 100% plastic free packaging.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Chicago-born artist Virginia Frances Sterrett (1900-31) was indeed a prodigy: having earned a scholarship with the Art Institute of Chicago at age 16 and her first major commission just three years later.
Although she succumbed to tuberculosis at age thirty, she did complete three major illustration projects: "Old French Fairy Tales" by the Comtesse de Segur (1920), Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Tanglewood Tales" (1921), and an extremely successful edition of "Arabian Nights" (1928). She passed away while completing a fourth assignment, "Myths and Legends" which sadly was never completed.
Her achievement was a delicate fantastic beauty, created with brush and pencil. Almost unschooled in art, she made pictures of haunting loveliness, suggesting magical realms no one ever knew except in the dreams of childhood.
This image is from Tanglewood Tales. You can read the book online here:

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.
Are your wood hanging frames handmade?
Yes! I make my frames with materials sourced from North America that are handmade by me in my workshop. It is relevant to note that Etsy considers frames to be a craft supply and so sellers can list frames that are bought in bulk from China. Rest assured this is not his case in my shop.

My Europa print looks absolutely stunning in my dorm room!! OddNerdVintage was so helpful in answering all my questions about the weight of the frame and how to hang it. I ended up using a command hook as well as command strips on the back to be safe. The frame was super easy to use, coming from the girl who had to put it together on move-in day. Everything is of beautiful quality and I couldn’t be happier!
