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. Danae receiving the Golden Rain 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.
From letters between Titian and the court of Madrid, it has been established that this Danae was executed in 1553. The painting takes up again a subject done in 1546 (now in Naples).
The figure of the young woman is posed reclining on a bed, and her beautiful body, recalling elegant Mannerist proportions, turns with a lazy rhythm towards us; her glance is directed up to the cloud, from which Jove pours a shower of gold down on his beloved mortal. In place of the classic cupid, we find here the disagreeable figure of an old servant who avidly holds out her apron to catch some of the coins - a sad figure that appears in many of the seduction scenes of the time.
A comparison with the earlier version, which was painted in Rome, gives us some light on the development of Titian's taste. In 1546 he appears to be engaged in an effort that is classic in tone and the composition works to suggest space. In this version it is the colour imbued with light which resolves the problem of form. The light, descending fantastically from the cloud, is not only a part of the plot, but a great stylistic solution.
