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 Sir Edward Burne-Jones 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 Annunciation 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.

Over 20 Years Experience
Only Museum Quality

The paintings we create are only of museum quality. Our academy graduated 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.

Annunciations became something of a stock-in-trade for Burne-Jones: the same subject, along with a Nativity, had been commissioned from him in 1862 for a bible produced by the Dalziel brothers, and on numerous subsequent occasions for stained glass. In this version, the expulsion from Eden frieze on the wall was derived directly from a stained-glass design. Sketches for the composition are in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, and the original cartoon re-worked in watercolour in the Castle Museum, Norwich. The oil, which was originally in the George Howard collection, was modelled by Sara Prinsep's niece Julia. In 1878 she had become the wife of the writer Leslie Stephen, and was appropriately painted while pregnant with her first child, Vanessa Stephen, later Bell (herself destined to become an artist, and the elder sister of Virginia Woolf), who was born on 3 May 1879. Having decided against a career in the church, the myth and mystery of his art became a substitute for religion in Burne-Jones's life. He created a highly personal adaptation of the Christian view of life, in Lord David Cecil's words, making it 'a search for spiritual salvation to be achieved with the help of the specifically Christian virtues of charity, humility and mercy', yet despite the gravity of his religious subjects, and especially his church stained-glass work, Burne-Jones's mythological works are invariably more deeply felt and convincing.
