Historic Centuries-Old Style Called Triptych Reborn with Prints On Canvas

Triptych is a work of art that is similar to panel paintings, three to be exact, which is why it’s divided into three sections. The three even hand crafted panels that are hinged together and can be arranged in different ways freestanding. It is therefore a type of “polyptych”, the term for all multi-panel works. The middle panel is generally the largest and it is flanked by two smaller related works, however today there are many triptychs that use equal-sized panels like the ones on our website. The multi-panel form arises from early Christian art, and was a popular standard format for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards. Its geographical range was from the eastern Byzantine churches to the Celtic churches in the west. Today, however, triptychs are a popular interior design go-to element to make any space look special.

Modern Photographic Triptych Printed On Canvas At MakeCanvasPrints

A photographic triptych is a common style used in modern commercial artwork. The photographs are usually arranged with a plain border between them. The work may consist of separate images that are variants on a theme, or may be one continuous larger image split into three panels. Just about any landscape photos look great, or any photo with a wide format. Then again, you could always turn our template sideways in our customizer, and make the image span 3 panels vertically instead. The arrangement could also be staggered at a diagonal for a more playful design.

Queenie creates vibrant scenes with common house hold items such as linen and baby toys. You can also cut out shapes using felt, that can be found at a local crafting store.

How to Make Your Own Triptych Canvas

make your own triptych canvas

We are excited to share with you our new product, the triptych canvas. The triptych canvas set is stretched over 3 8×10 canvases totaling 24” x 10”. The three canvases are stretched on a 1.5 inch frame and come ready to hang on the wall. We already made the measurements for you so that it is easy for you to make your own triptych canvas. Without having to put in the guesswork of where the photos have to line up, it is a simple four step process.

Panoramic Triptych

Panoramic photos work great as a triptych canvas, since these photos tend to be longer in length than the standard photo. Landscapes are the most popular panoramic type photo and are compatible with the triptych canvas look. Breaking a landscape photo into three panels is a great way to add an extra design element to the image. This wouldn’t work as well as a photo with a single subject matter, such as a portrait, but if done right, it can still be done. Another type of image that would work well as a triptych canvas is abstract art. This look is often found in modern homes with large artwork on the walls. The canvases we have set up as triptych are smaller in size, but still can be compatible as small abstract art hanging in an office.

Make Your Own Triptych Canvas with Ease

Like we said earlier, the guesswork is done for you, so that you can make your own triptych canvas with ease. The images will be fully wrapped around the frame, and the measurements have already been made. When side-by-side, the canvases will line up evenly and the images will align perfectly. Therefore, the edges of the canvas will not be left blank, but will also have the images seamlessly carrying over to the next canvas. The gallery wrap look of the triptych canvas can be easily designed by you.
