"The Beggars" will be custom-printed for your order using the latest giclée printing technology. This technique ensures that the Canvas Print captures an exceptional level of detail, showcasing vibrant and vivid colors with remarkable clarity.

Our use of the finest quality, fine-textured canvas lends art reproductions a painting-like appearance. Combined with a satin-gloss coating, it delivers exceptional print outcomes, showcasing vivid colors, intricate details, deep blacks, and impeccable contrasts. The canvas structure is also highly compatible with canvas stretching frames, further enhancing its versatility.

To ensure proper stretching of the artwork on the stretcher-bar, we add additional blank borders around the printed area on all sides.

Our printing process utilizes cutting-edge technology and employs the Giclée printmaking method, ensuring exceptional quality. The colors undergo independent verification, guaranteeing a lifespan of over 100 years.

Please note that there are postal restrictions limiting the size of framed prints to a maximum of 28 inches along the longest side of the painting. If you desire a larger art print, we recommend utilizing the services of your local framing studio.
*It is important to mention that the framing option is unavailable for certain paintings, such as those with oval or round shapes.

There are five of them in this little picture - five cripples, strangely dressed, with grotesque hats. At the bottom right, a figure walks away carrying an object resembling a sea snail shell. And the cripples are each heading in a different direction on their short wooden prostheses.

The plot of the work, one of Pieter Bruegel the Elder's last, remains a mystery. Perhaps the painter wanted to represent the five layers of society: the king with his cardboard crown, the soldier with his paper helmet, the bourgeois with his beret, the peasant with his hat, and the clergyman with his paper mitre.

Even in this small work Bruegel emerges as an artist of the life of the Flemish peasants whom he so often depicts with their festivities, dances, and traditions. He was also able to paint nature - the Flemish lowlands and its lakes. The series The Months, commissioned by a wealthy financier from Antwerp, proves it. In the five paintings (known today from this series), the life of the peasants unfolds to the rhythm of the seasons and reveals a soulful, living world.
