Classic Canvas

It's the ultimate surface, expertly stretched by hand. The faultless, finest grade cloth is primed with highly pigmented Gesso and that is beautifully responsive to every brushstroke. Built for endurance, with solid wood stretcher bars that are kiln-dried for strength and rigorously tested for warp-resistance. Wood Keys are also included to achieve the correct canvas tension. No other surface comes close.

For the ultimate surface, choose Winsor & Newton canvas.
