Goethe inspirational calligraphy print

About this Print

This well known inspirational quote from the German Philospher, Goethe, was originally written on vellum (animal skin) in Sumi which is a Japanese ink in a Roman style letterform.  This calligraphy print makes a great gift for both young and old.

The artwork is available as a canvas print which has been flat bed scanned and reproduced on cotton art canvas, varnished and stretch framed ready to hang. 

It is also available mounted or framed in our range of frames.
