We create our paintings with museum quality and covering the highest academic standards. Once we get your order, it will be entirely hand-painted with oil on canvas. All the materials we use are the highest level, being totally artist graded painting materials and linen canvas.

We will add 1.6" (4 cm) additional blank canvas all over the painting for stretching.

High quality and detailing in every inch are time consuming. The reproduction of Andrea del Sarto also needs time to dry in order to be completely ready for shipping, as this is crucial to not be damaged during transportation.
Based on the size, level of detail and complexity we need 8-9 weeks to complete the process.

In case the delivery date needs to be extended in time, or we are overloaded with requests, there will be an email sent to you sharing the new timelines of production and delivery.

TOPofART wants to remind you to keep patient, in order to get you the highest quality, being our mission to fulfill your expectations.

We not stretch and frame our oil paintings due to several reasons:
Painting reproduction is a high quality expensive product, which we cannot risk to damage by sending it being stretched.
Also, there are postal restrictions, regarding the size of the shipment.
Additionally, due to the dimensions of the stretched canvas, the shipment price may exceed the price of the product itself.

You can stretch and frame your painting in your local frame-shop.

Once the painting The Sacrifice of Isaac is ready and dry, it will be shipped to your delivery address. The canvas will be rolled-up in a secure postal tube.

We offer free shipping as well as paid express transportation services.

After adding your artwork to the shopping cart, you will be able to check the delivery price using the Estimate Shipping and Tax tool.

Andrea del Sarto - The Sacrifice of Abraham

Vasari relates that Andrea del Sarto, on the suggestion of a Florentine friend who sold art works to Francis I, King of France, made a beautiful Sacrifice of Abraham (now in Dresden) and executed a smaller but equally perfect replica for Paolo da Terrarossa.

The subsequent vicissitudes of the two pictures become very complicated in Vasari's account, but evidently the version in the Prado is the second one, given its size (a sketch for it is in the Cleveland Museum).
It is undoubtedly a late work, with a certain strength and an ordered quality. Vasari mentions with admiration 'the very handsome and tender child Isaac, all nude, trembling with fear of death', the boy's robes fallen to the ground that are 'real and natural' and finally the unusual landscape.

If the work is read according to such naturalistic standards, the painting is certainly notable. To our sensibilities, however, the bombast in Abraham's gesture is inescapable, even accepting the intention of creating space. Nor is the excessive balance of the somewhat academic design entirely acceptable, even if we recognize a more agitated handling - a Pontormo - like sensibility - in Isaac's face and in some details of the background.

There is an interesting hypothesis that this work was to serve as a pendant to the Charity (Louvre) executed a decade earlier. It is evident that with the relaxation of the stylistic tension that reaches its maximum in a work like the Pieta in Vienna, Andrea del Sarto returned in the last years of his brief and intense career to his youthful tendency towards an archaizing simplicity and a more fervid religious inspiration.
