The effects of ageing and antiqueness impart to a painting the charm of authenticity and nobility. Thus, a reproduction of a painting would impart unique style and appearance to any interior.
The process of making our painting reproductions look old and cracked is in absolute conformity with the technology of oil painting, and in no way does it damage the painting.
Please see some examples of art reproductions that have been made to look old in our studio.

The Time it Takes to be Created:To paint your Botticelli Hand-Painted Art Reproduction time is needed. The painting should not be made too hastily, nor should any deadlines be pursued. For the painting to acquire high quality and precision of detail, time is necessary. It also needs time to dry in order to be completely ready for shipping. Depending on the complexity, the level of detail, and the size of the painting, we'll need 4-5 weeks to make the painting.
Should a change of deadlines become necessary, or should your order arrive at a time when we are overloaded with work, then we will notify you by e-mail concerning how much time we would need to complete your painting reproduction.
Shipping:We do not frame our oil painting reproductions. Hand-Painted Art Reproduction is an expensive product, and the risks of damaging a painting stretched on a frame during transportation are too high. The Story of Nastagio degli Onesti II by Botticelli is, therefore, not framed, and will be sent to you rolled up and packaged in a strong and secure postal tube.

The paintings we create are only of museum quality. Our academically trained artists will never allow a compromise in the quality and detail of the ordered painting. TOPofART do not work, and will never allow ourselves to work with low quality studios from the Far East. We are based in Europe, and quality is our highest priority.
This illustration of a scene in a Boccaccio story was commissioned for the marriage of Giannozzo Pucci and Lucrezia Bini (1483), as indicated by the coats of arms; stylistic examination confirms this dating. The series of panels is by Botticelli in concept and design, but the execution is mainly studio work and critics recognize in it the collaboration of Bartolomeo di Giovanni. Botticelli had come back from Rome in 1482 famous for the work he had done there and, overloaded with commissions, was obliged to hire assistants. Certainly the drawing is very fine - "all alive with delicate and pungent graces" (Bettini) - and reflects the narrative ability of the master and his penetrating intuition in translating the original novella. In it, Boccaccio tells the tale of an unrequited lover who changes his lady's mind: he made her visualize hell and the perpetual torment of a cruel woman by the lover who had suffered damnation for her. In the detail reproduced here, the youth is seen pursuing the nude girl; he knocks her to the ground, tears out her heart, throws it to his dogs, then starts the pursuit and torture again, the cycle continuing through eternity. Without question it is the most beautiful of the panels. The view recedes from the shore of Classe to the far distant horizon which divides the scene into two areas equal in size but entirely different in intensity. Vertically, the picture is punctuated at varying intervals by the tall pine-trees supporting their green, mushroom-shaped tops. The elegant figures move amid these geometric coordinates, and the fantastic narration is achieved effortlessly in a play of intricate rhythms.
