3. Print

4. Frame



A chromogenic print (huh?!) In other words: a digital print on special photographic paper at no extra cost (don’t say we’re not good to you).

Fine art paper
Special (oooooh) art paper giving a rich matt finish used on either Hahnemuhle or Epson fine art. N/A for canvas or plexi glass. Frame is advised with fine art paper to protect the edges.


Decide to go bare without a frame, or choose between high quality black, white, or our special frame. 'Special' because it was explicitly chosen by our team to suit the artwork best and bring out its loveliest features. Note that not all frame options are available for every artwork.

Artwork description

Deeply inspired by the mysteriously, moody works that define Edward Hopper’s oeuvre, Joost Wensveen has created a series for The Public House of Art that honours the American master. Situated between an open door and a closed door, Wensveen’s sitter occupies a psychological purgatory that is universally understood. When you come to a fork in the road, never worry about a road less travelled by, as there is no wrong direction when you stay true to your destiny.
