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 Velazquez 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. Equestrian Portrait of Don Gaspar de Guzman Count-Duke of Olivares by Velazquez 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 picture commemorates the royal favourite and minister and political author of Philip IV's victories. We see here the Count-Duke seated on his rearing horse. In the background, on the left, there is an infantry battle. The position of the horse, in the classical and humanist tradition, and the commanding pose of the figure, as in other equestrian portraits, are conventions imposed by the theme. But in carrying it out, the artist transformed and individualized its character. Starting from the sword, and passing through the arm and baton of command, a rapid zigzag is traced, which sums up the broken movement of the figure and the axis of the entire picture, from below to above and from one end to the other: and mobilizes it completely, aided by all the other indications of movement. A feeling of motion animates every phase and every point and is echoed in the landscape which is dramatically rich in changes in level and in raking light and shade, as well as in the sky, full of tumultuous clouds and torn by luminous breaks. The smoking battle adds a sharp, even tragic note to the breathless action of the composition, which is coherently accompanied by the bursts of colour and by the broken and unexpected patterns of the brushwork.
