Overgaden Above the Water - Christianshavn
The street with the slightly special name is one of the most beautiful in Copenhagen, bringing to mind Amsterdam's similar aesthetics. It was also a Dutchman, Johan Semp, who in 1617 was tasked by Christian IV to begin the construction of a new city. Inspired by Holland, the king wanted an upper and lower town, which is also the reason for the street name. Quite fittingly, the houses in the street have housed many writers, sculptors and painters over time, who have delivered art in the same splendor as the houses' exteriors.
The motif is hand painted by Hannah Jørgensen, who also personally signs every poster that is purchased. The motif is also found in postcards.
It is possible to purchase a quality frame in solid oak if you would like the easy solution. The frame fits perfectly for an A3 poster and has a high-quality closing system on the back, which means that the poster will not slide around when it is inserted. The frame also contains a glass plate, which together with the oak gives an elegant Nordic look. We frame the poster for you, so you don't have to think about anything else but finding the perfect place on your wall. The frame is produced in the EU and using sustainable wood.
