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.

This painting reproduction will be completely painted by hand with oil paints on a blank linen canvas. We add additional 1.6" (4cm) of blank canvas above the offered size which will be used to stretch the canvas on a stretcher-bar.
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. The Burial of Christ 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 canvas was commissioned by Philip II in 1559 and was sent to him in the same year. It has capital importance in the development of Titian's style. The portrayal of the tragedy, which the painter had masterfully achieved in epic form in a youthful work now in the Louvre, is here shown in terms of a living, suffering participation to which the pictorial language is extraordinarily appropriate.
It is significant that the bearded Joseph of Arimathea, who supports the body of Christ, is more than probably a self-portrait. Knowingly composed, the figures are distributed in a fan-like scheme and are racked by spasms of grief. But it is the colour that controls all the elements, starting from the livid body of Christ and from the white shroud falling over the side of the tomb, which is decorated with bas-reliefs. The last are the only unessential, ornamental notes in this tragic group. The bloodless body of Christ and the weight of His listless arm are unforgettable.
Unforgettable, too, is the figure of the Magdalen. Most extraordinary, however, is how colour creates the individual figures, so that the space is reduced, attenuated and leaves us breathless. Dvorak rightly suggested that in this moment Titian, "renouncing the intoxication of the senses of his youthful works, had sought to find himself in a higher and more remote region of the spirit."
There is much to say about Titian's sense of religion, which is not to be confused with any didactic or pietistic zeal of the type that activated Counter-Reformation policy in the arts and was urged on him by some patrons - as exemplified in a canvas in the Prado titled Spain Succouring Religion which in fact consists of two feminine beauties counterpoised, one richly dressed, the other nude. Yet a dramatic concept of humanity in terms of its myths and its history, and of the nature that seems to echo it, is more and more apparent in the works of the last period, from the late Entombment and St. Lawrence, also in the Prado, to the St. Sebastian in St. Petersburg and Apollo and Marsyas in Kormeriz, Czech Republic.
