Welcome to dickblick
Artists' Canvas from Winsor & Newton is a range of back-stapled, 13/16" profile stretched canvas that is manufactured to the highest quality standards. Made with heavyweight 8 oz natural cotton duck, these canvases feature a medium grain surface. They are ideal for all techniques, including heavier applications of color, and can be used with oil, water-mixable oil, acrylic, and alkyd paints.
Artists' Canvas is triple-coated with acid-free sizing and two coats of highly pigmented acrylic primer specially developed by Winsor & Newton. Balanced absorbency and tooth prevents sinking of oil colors and improves adhesion.
These canvases feature frame construction with kiln-dried, ¾" stretcher bars. Tailored corners and excellent tension are achieved by hand stretching each canvas. In addition, ample canvas on the back allows for restretching. The 13/16" (21 mm) deep, staple-free edges can be painted to display finished paintings with or without a frame.
Shipping Note — Due to manufacturer distribution restrictions, Winsor & Newton products cannot be shipped to addresses outside of North America.

BLICK'S - W&N Cotton Canvas a good deal
from Southeastern Coastal VA
Comments about Winsor & Newton Winsor & Newton Artists’ 13/16" Profile Cotton Canvas:
My order arrived very quickly as expected from BLICK. The canvases were packaged well and in good condition. Very satisfied. Have used lots of these W&N cotton canvases in the past and I've always found them to be a great deal compared to lesser quality canvases. I've read many negative reviews in the past about these W&N canvases, as well as negatives for FREDRIX canvases also. People need to realize that hardly nothing is made the way it used to be - nor is it made in the US any longer. And, unless you willing to spend the big $$$ for quality pre-stretched canvases, you'll have to deal with it. Either that, or buy canvas rolls and stretch your own on to stretchers or hardboard panels. Another improvement I'll do is applying gesso to any mass manufactured canvas I buy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Traditional, high quality stretched canvas
use for oil paintings, solid foundation/backing, can count on the quality.

By Mac Senior
from Prescott, AZ
So happy Blick still carries this Brand. True old school stretched canvas. Square edges, no warping.Takes acrylic and oil paints well. Rugged. stands up to brush scrubbing and painting knives. Still have several of those original 35 year old paintings hanging in my home and studio.

Great Price for good value
from Morro Bay, CA
I already pained a picture on one of the canvases and it looks great on this canvas. I was lucky to find Blick canvases. I will come back for sure for more items.
Quality canvas at a good price
By Pam, aspiring artist
I want my work to be archival, and I know with Winsor Newton, my canvases are excellent quality at a reasonable price.

knots in the stretcher strips
from linco, NE
I've purchased a few of these in the past and found the stretcher strips to be of poor quality. The two that I have now are ridiculously warped where the knots appear in the wood. none of my other pre-stretched canvases have warped. I attribute this to the fact that no other manufacturer that I have dealt with had this level of knots in their wood.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I assumed this would be a smooth texture with the word Profile in the description. I have a really hard time painting on a rough texture; on the other hand if you like a rough texture this is a very well made canvas with a nice tight surface.
from Johnstown, Ohio
I got these for my bf who is really getting into painting and he loved them. They work really well with acrylic paints and I would tell others they're great to use as well!

This was the first canvas I had ever purchased. I was very pleased with my choice. It is of really good quality for the price. Sturdy and took the paint very well. I will surely buy again.
