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. Venus and Adonis 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.
The work is mentioned in a letter from Titian to Prince Philip and was enthusiastically praised by Ludovico Dolce in his dialogue on painting (1557). Titian's creation is not only a complex of images that are beautiful in themselves and full of vitality, as Dolce, with his fully naturalistic Renaissance taste, understood, but it is a dramatic concept achieved with great stylistic coherence.
The possession of a rich and subtle command of colour, the ability to bend the substance of the colour to the most intense tonalities and the most refined nuances, permit Titian to place his figures in open space and articulate their contrapuntal movements - the impatient movement of the young hunter, the tender gesture of Venus, who attempts to hold him back, are almost a presage of the imminent tragedy. And meanwhile there are the dogs, "so naturally painted they seem to sniff, bay and be full of eagerness to confront any wild beast" (L. Dolce).
Titian explained to Philip II that he had represented Venus from the back to distinguish her from the Danaé, which was to be its companion piece. Very likely, however, the painter has taken up a Hellenistic Maenad motif, echoed for example in the famous bas-relief of the Ara Grimani, which could be admired in the Venetian palace of the same name in the S. Maria Formosa district.
