Welcome to dickblick
Belgian linen is considered by many to be the ultimate surface for oil painting and also among the most archival.
These professional-quality, pre-stretched canvases from Fredrix feature the finest, 5.5 oz pure Belgian linen, primed with acid-free acrylic Titanium gesso to a finished weight of 11 oz for an outstanding painting experience.
Best-caliber stretcher strips are kiln dried to prevent warping, then bolstered with extra bracing for added support, so you know these canvases will stay straight and true over time.
Every Fredrix Pro Series stretched canvas is primed in the USA. Pro Series is available in two profiles: Traditional profile with 7/8" profile stretcher bars and the sturdier Gallery profile with 1-3/8" stretcher bars.

Excellent Quality Canvas
By Dave the Artist
from Ashburn, VA
Comments about Fredrix Pro Series Traditional 7/8” Profile Belgian Linen Canvas:
Great for portrait paintings! Very good quality product. If I knew it was made with stretcher bars sourced from FSC-certified wood or something of the like, as well as organic linen, I would give it a 5.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Makes painting on a reliable surface too easy!
Love this Fredrix Belgian Linen PreStretched Canvas!
By Valeri Arnold-Osley
from Nantucket, MA
Working as a professional artist I am busy with the preliminary work of sketching and prep and do not always have the time to make my own canvases due to deadlines. Being a portrait artist first and an everything else artist as well, working with this prestretched canvas is time saving. It is a somewhat medium smooth surface to work on, for almost anything that you can paint. The prime surface is even and a pleasure to work on. Also, the wood bars are sturdy enough so that the wood will not warp, which can happen with the lesser quality prestretched canvas. I cannot find any drawbacks to Fredrix Professional PreStretched Belgian Linen Canvas

I'm new to working with Linen canvases and I haven't even used this one yet so I can't say much about how I feel about it. I would say that it has good tooth, it is not a super smooth canvas if you're used to that. We'll see how it goes!
from Chicago, IL
Well crafted, good quality linen. I used it to do a portrait painting in oil and I had no problems with it. Like with any canvas that is going to get worked with pressured brush strokes, use the keys that are provided.
great painting surface
Really nice painting surface at a great price. Tightly stretched, much more consistent than other brands.
