Canon and Mauritshuis museum tie up for art print production on Arizona


In celebration of World Art Day, Canon USA announces its collaboration with Canon Production Printing and the Mauritshuis museum in the Netherlands, helping to pay homage to the enduring legacy of Johannes Vermeer’s 1665 masterpiece ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’, through a mega-sized 3D-printed reproduction, currently on display in the Mauritshuis Museum in the Netherlands. This unique reproduction of Girl with a Pearl Earring, the largest elevated print of this kind in the world, was created using Canon’s elevated printing technology. This technology, which is used in PRISMAelevate XL software, enabled Canon Production Printing to create the unique enlargement on the Arizona flatbed printer, using UV ink to build layer-on-layer. Mauritshuis, in collaboration with Canon Production Printing, embarked on a journey to unveil the original beauty of Vermeer’s renowned artwork as it looked when it was first created over 359 years ago.
