The Time it Takes to be Created:To paint your Caspar David Friedrich 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 Cross in the Mountains by Caspar David Friedrich is, therefore, not framed, and will be sent to you rolled up and packaged in a strong and secure postal tube.
You can check the price for shipping of the order on the shopping cart screen.
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 Cross in the Mountains
This stunning altarpiece stirred up a great controversy when Friedrich exhibited it in 1808. The idea of a devotional landscape painting was anathema to many of his contemporaries, and arguments between supporters and opponents of the painting raged in the newspapers for over two years. Friedrich's most vehement critic, Freiherr von Ramdohr, thought it a "veritable presumption, if landscape painting were to sneak into the church and creep on to the altar".
When Friedrich designed the Cross in the Mountains as an altarpiece, he was breaking one of art's most sacred conventions. Traditionally, a religious story or aUegory had been told exclusively through the human drama. The figures were immediately recognizable by their attributes - from a simple halo to a palm branch - and the biblical narrative was made explicit through rhetorical gesture and expression. Even in Friedrich's time, it was felt that the imagery of landscape painting was too unfamiliar and obscure for devotional purposes.
