The Time it Takes to be Created:To paint your Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas 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 6-7 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 Bellelli Family by Degas 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 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.
Degas focused on a limited number of themes, and explored them obsessively.
Dancers were among his favourite topics and he was fascinated by the young ballerinas of the Paris Opera, both on stage and in the rehearsal rooms, as in Two Dancers on Stage and The Dancing Class. Even though fixed on canvas, his figures seem to be moving.
The masterpiece of Degas' early years is the life-sized portrait of The Bellelli Family. Painted in the tradition of the Old Masters he so admired, it achieved a new sense of immediacy, which is still more striking in The Opera Orchestra painted 10 years later.
Degas began this magnificent portrait of his aunt Laura and her family when he visited them in Florence when he was in his mid-20s. Composed from a number of studies, it evokes the tension between the unhappily married couple. Laura - haughty and detached - is pregnant, but dressed in mourning for her father, whose portrait hangs behind her. Her husband sits in isolation, in his armchair.
