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 Opera Orchestra 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.
The bassoonist in the centre of this group is Desire Dihau, a friend of Degas who had commissioned his own portrait from the artist. Degas chose to paint him among his fellozv-musicians during a performance at the Paris Opera, and adopted a viewpoint in the stalls, close to the orchestra pit. As a result, the floodlit dancers on the stage are dramatically cut off by the top edge of the picture.
