Hans Paus art prints and posters

Born in 1959, Dutch artist Hans Paus' paintings are inspired by the primal landscapes of his native region, Twente, and impressions from his global travels. Paus didn't start painting till he was nearly 30, but this didn't hamper his inherent passion for modern art, and it’s only been since 2005 that Paus has found the freedom to pursue his art professionally.

Characterized by neo-impressionism, Paus uses a range of techniques in his work, developing a recognizable style in which the principal aim is to catch and intensify the atmospheric landscapes with light and colour. Giving a contemporary twist to the traditional impressionistic style, Paus paints breathtaking spectacles of rich vast landscapes. A peaceful sensibility emanates from the linear division between land and the horizon in his paintings. But Paus is far from just a pretty picture painter – his quiet impressionistic dabs also reflects a darker and more passionate energy in his Scarlet Landscape series.

Paus paints with a “wet on wet” technique, where layers of wet paint are applied to previous layers of wet paint, a signature technique used by the medieval Dutch masters Jan Van Eyck and Rogier van der Weyden. Despite the thick layers, Paus succeeds in giving the impression of a smoothly set up painting. During the process of painting, the passionate artist abstracts his landscapes in such a gradual manner that there is never a break between the original source and the newly created image.

Striving for a poetic intensity, Paus describes his paintings as being “optimistic, with a lust for life”. To date, Hans Paus has exhibited in various prestigious international galleries and his original paintings and limited editions are sold all over the world.

More about framing

Exploded-product

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
