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 Bruegel the Elder 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 Triumph of Death by Bruegel the Elder 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 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.
