This is a beautiful canvas print of the Temple of Apollo at Sunset.

Temple of Apollo was constructed between 431 and 420 BCE. The Temple was burnt down in 423 BCE. It was then restored and the roof was decorated with a gilded copper quadriga (chariot pulled by four horses).

Years later, the temple lost its roof once again due to a severe thunderstorm. The temple's original wooden ceiling had caved in, and there was no chance to restore it any longer. The temple, unfortunately, fell into decay.

In another fire in 165 BCE, the temple suffered more damage as most of the sculptures were destroyed. Restoration work started immediately after the fire, but it took 240 years to complete. Today you can see that a lot of parts are missing from the main building and only 7 columns of 15 columns still stand.

Care instructions

  • To maintain the appearance of your canvas, gently sweep it with a soft, dry cloth or a light feather duster for routine dusting.
  • For more thorough cleaning, lightly dab the canvas with a moist, clean cloth, taking care to apply minimal pressure.
  • Protect your artwork from fading by keeping it out of locations that receive continuous direct sunlight.
  • Steer clear of harsh chemicals and rough cleaning tools, as they can harm the canvas and cause the ink to deteriorate.
  • Handle your canvas delicately during cleaning and allow it to air dry naturally—avoid soaking or directly spraying it with water.
  • Ensure your canvas is not displayed or stored in areas prone to high moisture or humidity to circumvent mold growth and prevent the stretching frame from becoming distorted.
