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. Surrender of Breda (Las Lanzas) 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.
This is one of the most important and problematical works of Velazquez. Despite the probable existence of preliminary drawings (for example, in the National Library, Madrid), the canvas underwent a very complicated process of development in successive stages, as X-rays have revealed (changes in the position of the horse, the central group, the position of the lances seen against the plain and the cloudy sky, etc.). The artist's own interest in this masterpiece is shown by his inclusion, on the far right, of a self-portrait. The surface is divided into four parts in a sensitive proportional modulation that intensifies the general dynamic rhythm. Against this rectangular division, around the central group of Nassau and Spinola, there are two curved banks of figures (with the big horse that is turning away): the general staff and the soldiers. Beyond them is the encampment with other lancers sketched in, and in the distance the city and its burning fortifications in the plain that extends to the distant horizon. All the figures are powerfully individualized portraits; the atmosphere is that of an action-camera shot, with everything caught in motion. It is a sunny day; the scene is inundated with vivid, transparent colours contrasting with the magnificent lances seen against the light, the halberds to the left, the moving shadows on the ground and the kaleidoscope of parade uniforms. There is neither rhetoric nor Spanish hauteur in this work; indeed, considering the time, it is a sort of calm and good-natured timbre that one registers, in part because Velazquez reduced but did not eliminate the original embrace of the victor and the vanquished.
