Old Holland Claessens Oil Primed Stretched Belgian Linen Canvas

The perfect stretched linen when only the very best will do!

Old Holland canvases are made exclusively from Claessens Linen, crafted from woven natural flax from Belgium. They grow, sort, and process the materials needed with the greatest care. These are truly natural products, with small differences in their color, composition, and non-mechanical surface feel, leading to a beautifully unique end product. Old Holland Claessens Oil Primed Belgian Linen Canvas features 100% Belgian linen prepared with two coats of oil primer and then stretched around robust 13/16" stretcher bars and back-stapled to the frame for optimum strength.

Both Old Holland and Claessens have over a century of craftsmanship behind their names, and are both considered leaders in their specific fields. The production of an canvas for Old Holland using Claessens linen is still inspired today by the proven techniques and methods from the times of the great Flemish and Dutch Masters. Experts and internationally renowned artists alike appreciate the qualities of an Old Holland Claessens canvas.

First the canvas is double sized and then carefully primed by knife with Zinc White bound in linseed oil. The canvas is then naturally air-dried for three days. It is then sanded with the utmost care and a final coating based on Titanium White is applied with knife and roller to achieve the typical surface expected from Claessens oil-primed canvas.

  • Highly revered Claessens oil priming
  • Prepared with two coats of oil primer

Old Holland Claessens Oil Primed Stretched Belgian Linen Canvas is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pin holes. I've never tried these before. With a product name like Old Holland, you're expecting the best. Instead, I was disappointed. Each canvas has minuet pin holes all over. It seems the first glue layer is too thin. I covered the back of the linen with acrylic gesso in hopes it keeps the oil from seeping through and rotting. I will not order these again. I'm staying with the Masterpiece stretched linen. ..it's the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good linen but don't like the stretcher bars. As of writing this review I still haven't painted on the canvases but there are a few things about the stretcher bars that bug me. That said the canvases are tight as a drum so these my not be as much of an issue. First thing is they have a cross brace which I hate. I haven't figured out if it's easily removed yet though. Second the stretcher bars are almost flat with very little lip to raise the canvas off the surface of the bar around the edges. The reason why I don't like these two aspects of the stretcher frame is that paint brushes can get hung up on the edges of the cross brace (these are not recessesed by much at all) and leave a straight line of paint or more paint at these points. The same goes for the inside edges of the stretcher bars themselves. As I said these canvases are tight as a drum so this may not be a problem and maybe I can remove the cross brace which I've done with other canvases but for right now I'm a little wary of trying them. Having the Claessen's linen is a real plus though and will make me give them a serious try.
