Hahnemühle FineArt Papers Print E-mail

Hahnemühle FineArt has been making art papers in Dassel, Germany since 1584. With over 400 years of tradition and experience, their papers have a world-wide reputation for quality that is second to none.

Inspirational Arts stocks the widest range of Hahnemühle FineArt papers available in Ireland. Hahnemühle Digital Fine Art media comes in three different ranges: matt, lustre and canvas.


These papers charm with their quality, their colour precision and their ability to render subtle detail throughout the tonal range. This Matt range was developed to meet the needs of two groups of people:

  • Artists with an appreciation of traditional art papers who intend to reproduce their paintings, etching or drawings with a high degree of colour fidelity.  These papers have a similar appearance and feel to traditional art papers that have been used by printmakers for hundreds of years.
  • Photographers who prefer the subtle rendering of a matt finish to a lustre finish.  These papers, especially the highly regarded Photo Rag®, are similar to the art papers used in the first hundred years of photography.



The Lustre range has been developed specially for high quality photographic reproduction. These papers carry forward into the digital age many of the characteristics of traditional, fibre-based darkroom papers.

The range extends from subtle lustre (satin) to mid-lustre (pearl) to high-lustre (glossy ‘baryta’) finishes.



The Hahnemühle FineArt range of artist canvases offer a choice of structures and finishes. These canvases are made from 100% cotton, or a mixture of cotton and polyester, to suit a variety of tastes.
