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. The Buffoon called Juan de Austria 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.
In this life-size figure, Velazquez again followed a rigorous standard of perspective. In the space formed by the floor and the wall in the background (open to the right on the scene of a naval battle), the artist traces with "still-life" elements - arquebus, cuirass, helmet, cannon-balls - an oblique cross system. At the centre of the cross, and linked to it by the angular arrangement of the feet and legs, rises the figure of the court jester in ceremonial dress.
It is interesting to note how the cane makes a compass shape with the arquebus on the ground, and how the arms point toward the right-hand corner, which is raised by the helmet. The splendour of the colours of opulent blacks and crimsons, and the rippling brushwork full of animation and unexpected jumps, does not alter the monumentality achieved by the composition, which exalts its subject. At the same time, the character of a simple man decked out in plumes has been preserved.
