The moon is our world's faithful companion, circling around the planet in a steady orbit that never ceases to catch our attention. Our selection of canvas prints on the theme of the mRead moreoon offer a stunning range of different views. A painting can immortalise its special moments: the slow descent of its silver disk into a churning sea, or the chink of the new moon peeking through some wispy clouds.

Silvery muse for poets through the ages

Paintings and poetry from the classical world depict the moon as a goddess. She is quieter and more approachable than the fiery sun god Apollo, but full of mystery and grace. Part of her charm lies in the changing shadows that sometimes hide her countenance from sight. She passes through her phases week by week: full moon, crescent moon, and everything in between. In some paintings, wolves and mad dogs howl at the moon, perhaps because they are devastated by her constant disappearance. There are some canvas prints that show the moon's special place in the astrologer's map of the night sky, and others that reflect the moon's mysterious influence on the tides of the sea. The moon doesn't care what we think, however. She is never one to stay the same for long, and that is why a canvas print is such a source of joy in a modern house. You can gaze upon her lonely beauty and reflect on the vast infinity of space and the place of human beings on their blue planet, guarded by its tiny moon.

Footprints on the moon

When the first astronauts landed on the lunar surface and left their footprints in the dust, everyone here on earth had to catch their breath for a moment and ponder the astounding achievements of modern science. Musicians, artists and photographers have been inspired by these adventures beyond our atmosphere, celebrating the courage that it takes to go to the dark side and back, viewing sights that human eyes have never seen before. A canvas print with an image of the moon will provide inspiration for young and old to find out more about the wonders of outer space. Scientific progress requires minds that are curious and hearts that are not afraid to push the boundaries of our present knowledge. A painting that captures the wonderment of the moon will certainly inspire these positive feelings and encourage us to greet each new night with a sense of awe and some deep appreciation for the comfortable home that we have made for ourselves here on earth.
