Canvas is an extremely durable fabric, being the basis for all manner of items, from tents and backpacks to shopping bags and shelters. It also happens to be the fabric for painting on. It is extremely durable and its plain woven finish had made it the perfect backdrop for the world’s greatest painters!
Modern canvas is made from cotton or linen with a small amount of PVC added, but historically, canvas makers used hemp and other locally sourced plants. The material differs from denim and other heavy woven fabrics because of its weave, either ‘plain’ or ‘duck’. The duck variety is simply, more tightly woven and comes from the Dutch word for cloth.
Canvas replaced wooden panels as an oil painting material in the 15th century, originally in Italy, and picture framing was a must for the new revolution. Its unique quality allows it to be stretched across the frame without wrinkling or warping and once covered with oil paint, it can remain in top condition for centuries.
Picture frames originated in Egyptian times but took off in the 14th and 15th centuries, primarily in churches as a way of protecting oil paintings. They became more and more elaborate and, in some cases, completely dwarfed the pictures inside!
