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 Titian 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. Emperor Carlos V on Horseback by Titian 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.
Titian's portraiture was particularly intense in the second half of the decade 1540-50. During his Roman sojourn in '45, the Pope had sat for him several times. An unforgettable page in his career is the Paul III and His Nephews, a psychological study of three personalities, of a world, of an epoch.
It is not surprising that the Emperor called Titian to Augsburg - where he had convoked the Diet and was staying with his splendid court and the feudatories of his vast empire - to serve as official portraitist. To handle the numerous commissions, Titian had brought with him his son Orazio, Cesare Vecellio and an able follower, Lamberto Sustris.
The portrait of Charles V, however, was executed by Titian himself, and in quite a short time - from April to September 1548. It is a portrait commemorating the Battle of Mulberg of 1547, in which the Emperor had defeated the Protestant princes.
The image of the Emperor, however, is not that of a victorious hero. It is the symbol of a strength of will that commits the individual to contend against enormous forces, that goads him on, consumes him. We do not know how much awareness there was in the artist in creating this historic interpretation, but there is no ambiguity in the reading of the picture, and his splendid series of portraits of famous people assures us that Titian possessed the ability to penetrate men and human events. The colours are darkling, perhaps emphasized by restorations that followed the damage incurred in a fire in the 18th century. The brushwork that builds up the sumptuous armour, the severe face, is laid on heavily. The heraldic disposition of the knight on horseback is exemplary.
