Stretched to perfection
It's the ultimate surface, expertly stretched by hand. The faultless, finest grade cloth is primed with highly pigmented Gesso and is beautifully responsive to every brushstroke. The linen surface has greater strength and longevity compared to a cotton canvas. Ideal for use with oil and acrylic paints.
Built for endurance, with solid spruce wood stretcher bars that are kiln-dried for strength and rigorously tested for warp-resistance. No other surface comes close.
For the ultimate surface, choose Winsor & Newton canvas.
Profile Depth: 19mm.

If you've every bought pre-stretched canvases you may have been suprised to find a small bag of wooden pieces attached to the back of the canvas stretcher. Many people wonder what they are actually for! These wedges can be inserted into the slots in the back of your canvas stretcher, and are used to tighten up the canvas fabric to stop it from loosening. The tension of your canvas will depend on how firmly and deeply you insert the wedges into the slots.
Winsor & Newton linen canvasses have the edge on quality for me. Always well stretched and taut. Peter Clark (Chislehurst, United Kingdom) on 29 May 2020
