Welcome to dickblick
Double-primed with acrylic gesso, Masterpiece Sausalito Cotton Canvas has a stiff surface texture designed to stand up to aggressive painting techniques, including heavy paint applications and impasto work in oil and acrylic.
The heavyweight 12 oz 100% cotton Sausalito canvas is back-stapled for a clean, professional look. With folded corners and an uncut selvage, artworks can be easily re-stretched if desired. Staple-free edges are perfect for frameless presentation.
Stretcher bars use a superior tongue-and-groove bracing system, eliminating the need for glue, staples, or any other materials that prevent expansion of the entire frame. Canvas 16" x 20" and larger is cross-braced for additional strength and tension, both in the canvas and on the frame. Corners and braces can be keyed to maintain a precise stretch over time.
Masterpiece Sausalito Cotton Canvas is available in three profiles:
• Monet Pro — 1-1/2" profile with a 1/2" relief between the bar face and canvas back.
• Vincent Pro — 7/8" profile with a 5/16" relief between the bar face and canvas back.
• 3D Pro — 2-1/2" profile with a 1/2" relief between the bar face and canvas back.
Monet Pro Sausalito Value Pack
Contains three 1½" profile canvases in your choice of popular sizes, including 8" × 10", 9" × 12", and 11" × 14".
Vincent Pro Sausalito Value Pack
Contains three 7/8" profile canvases in your choice of popular sizes, including 8" × 10", 9" × 12", and 11" × 14".

Best in class
from Brooklyn, NY
Purchased a 24 x 30 inch Monterrey (7 oz. canvas) Monet (1.5 inch stretcher depth). Arrived in perfect condition, which is a plus (stretched canvases don't always). Canvas is quite taut, which is great. Corners well done with plenty of spare material for restretching if needed. The canvas is lightweight but there were no imperfections. Others call the tooth medium, but in my experience for cotton canvas it is on the fine side, which I personally prefer. Heavy duty stretcher/crossbars, and joints are keyed. Sustainably sourced wood. Top rate, professional quality. Very good value for the price. Wish they sold larger sizes. Looks like 30 x 40 inches is the max. Hope Masterpiece will reconsider.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By The Oil Painter of St. Paul

A GREAT value! I have used Masterpiece stretched canvases for about 4 years now, always purchasing them in store. I had some concerns about ordering them on line and not being able to look them over for any irregularities. They all were perfect when I received them and would not hesitate to purchase again on line. All were stretched squarely on the frame, the canvas was taught and there are no flaws in the canvas. For this weight, primed canvas, there isn't a better value that I have seen on the market.

this is a masterpiece canvas what more can be said.it has the look and feel of a really good canvas.
Just what I wanted
from Commerce Township, Michigan
I am doing bead embroidery and wanted to display my small little pieces on a Canvass. Since I have 10 Beaded Embroidery pieces, I ordered 10 canvasses. They look cute as a button and was exactly what I wanted. The Quality is excellent.
I like the tooth on the Sausalito canvas but there isn't a lot of difference between it and the Monterey. If I wanted a canvas for heavy or impasto work this would be my choice because it is heavier weight but for lighter work I prefer the Monterey.
Nice tight stretch!
By Garden Artist
from Salem, Va.
I like the texture and nice tight stretch but not the dry chalky feel of these canvases. I will probably have to recoat them with a less absorbent gesso.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

fairly good canvas
I've done quite a few paintings using this canvas and in general, the quality is quite good.One time I got a canvas with a broken back stretcher bar, but after I reported it they replaced it without any hassle.I will definitely be buying these again in the future.

Poor quality wood, good canvas
from Richmond, Ca
Blick has been great with customer service returns, and was great with this product return too. Both medium sized Masterpiece Vincent Pro canvases i got were poor quality - one severely bowed crossbar, the other one cracked at cross joint and had a glue-patched wood knot. The cotton quality and priming looked good. There aren't many other brand options available for reasonably priced stretched canvas with corner wedges and cross braced medium sizes, in 7/8" stretcher. I would give them another try if I could see them first but the local Blick doesn't stock them.

I use oil paints on these canvases and I absolutely loves them. I've made the mistake of buying cheaper brands and I'm always disappointed. I now only buy Masterpiece canvas, specifically Vincent. They are great! Also, I save a lot of money buying them online.
