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 Pieter Bruegel the Elder 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 Triumph of Death 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.

The Triumph of Death by Bruegel the Elder
In relation to the print Dulle Griet, 1564, this work may be dated between 1560 and 1566-69. The subject is derived from the Apocalypse and Ecclesiastes, but is not religious in intent or theme. It was conceived and executed for an emphatically secular reason. It is in fact connected with the massacres under the Spanish domination, and the "beggars" revolt. The work, like others, was inspired by their resistance. The oppressors, too, are snatched up by death. Companies of the dead crowd around the wagon into which a howling mob is chased by Death on horseback; even kings and cardinals are carried off in the end. There are cadavers everywhere, spectres and skeletons in heaps, while in the background battles and fires rage, and on the right, gallows with their hanging burdens rise against the sky. There is no verbal equivalent for these images; in the apparent tangle, each detail is clear - a single voice in the terrible chorus. The images are locked in a composition which advances in great successive "compass turns" from the epicenter on the left towards the right, like a calculated landslide. It is reinforced by all the convergences from above and below, in an immediate and decided knot, so that there is nothing episodic in the many elements of the scene; the concentration is intense and absorbing. It is difficult to forget the scorching tragic climate that the artist has caught in this exceptional work.
