Canvas Stretched

Stretched Canvas or canvas stretched over stretcher bars is one of the oldest painting supports. It is the innovation that made painting more portable and to some extent more decorative. The wooden panels and walls (even cave walls) that came before tended to be a more permanent part of the structure. The trend in stretched canvas is for the staples holding the canvas to the stretcher bars to be hidden in some way so that the canvas can be hung without the need for a frame. Many of these canvases are painted right around the edge to ease the transition from the wall into the painting.
