As an artist, one of the best ways to display your talents is on a canvas. But did you know that canvas is a rather recent development in art history?
ORIGIN AND HISTORY
Historically made from tightly woven hemp—the word canvas comes from the Latin cannabis—it came into common usage in the 16th century during the Italian Renaissance. Venetian painters were especially keen on utilizing canvas because it was easier for them to use in a humid environment than frescos (which dried poorly in the lagoon) or wood panels (which absorbed moisture and warped).
They also had a large, cheap supply readily available—given that the material was also used to make sails and the Venetians were known for their naval fleet. Canvas allows photographers and painters alike to professionally have their piece of art on display.
