First Class Professional Grade Belgian Linen Canvas with Medium Rough Texture

The Claessens name is synonymous with fine linen all over the world. Victor Claessens started his company in 1906 when he began producing top-quality artist linen canvas. The scarcity of this type of linen canvas in post World War II New York is what motivated Utrecht's founder, Norman Gulamerian, a Brooklyn-based painter, to start his business, now known as Utrecht Art Supplies, to source this fine linen canvas from Belgium. Now, more than a century after Claessens was founded, the company still makes its linen canvas in the original building where Victor Claessens started. His descendents have made a conscious choice to keep a small-scale approach to artist canvas manufacturing and to honor the traditional methods for treating and preparing the canvas surface. The result is a museum quality linen canvas without equal.

Based on a relationship that goes back decades, Utrecht and Claessens have teamed up to produce an exclusive line of single weave, double oil-primed linen for oil painting. This Type 880 medium rough texture linen canvas is one of the 3 types in this exclusive line.

  • Type 880 - superior Belgian linen, expertly prepared.
  • Heavy weight linen ideal for artists desiring a slight texture in finished works.
  • Texture: Medium Rough, Single Weave, Pronounced Tooth
  • Finished Weight* per square yard: 18 oz
  • Raw canvas weight per square yard: 11 oz
  • Threads per square inch: 64

This exclusive line of Claessens canvas from Utrecht is also available in a lighter weight, smooth texture linen, the Type 820 and a medium textured, medium weight linen, the Type 850.
