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 Giorgio da Castelfranco Giorgione 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 Judith 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.

In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the painting Judith was thought to be by Raphael. Later G. Waagen ascribed it to Moretto da Brescia. In 1866 the Judith was identified by K. Liphart as a Giorgione. This attribution had been proposed a hundred years earlier by P. J. Mariette, but it had apparently received no support at that time.

The Judith was probably executed about the same time as the Castelfranco Madonna.
The Hermitage picture may have served as part of a built-in cupboard or an organ: before the transfer of the painting onto canvas there were visible marks of a lock on the panel. Different publications contain contradictory data on the picture's size: some authors believe that its present size is the original one, others hold that the composition was trimmed at the sides in the course of its transfer onto canvas in the Hermitage. In the engraving by Toinette Larcher (eighteenth century) we see two trees at the right and the whole composition is wider. However, an earlier engraving done by the master who signed himself L. Sa. (seventeenth century) reproduces the composition in its present-day form. Evidently in the Crozat collection the picture had had two lateral extensions added, following which T. Larcher made her engraving. In the Hermitage the extensions were removed, a fact confirmed by archival documents.

Restoration work on the canvas was completed in 1972. This consisted in the removal of a layer of yellow-tinted varnish and of several later overpaintings: the original coli range of the picture was thus revealed. According to entrii in old catalogues, the Judith was brought to France by Fc and later purchased by Bertin, from whom it passed to Cr T. Pignatti voiced the opinion that there is a certain likeness between the head of Holofernes and the artist himself.
