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 Francisco de Goya 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 9-10 weeks to complete the process.

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.

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes - The Second of May 1808 in Madrid or The Fight against the Mamelukes

The scene represents the assault of the people of Madrid on Napoleon's Mameluke horsemen and dragoons.

In the ferocity of the mob there was a seeming renewal of Spain's historical conflict with the Moors, just as there would be again against the Moroccans 125 years after 1808. In the city square, amid clouds of smoke, the Madrid partisans attack the forces of repression without quarter; the latter desperately defend themselves against knives and daggers and point-blank gunshots.

The composition appears to begin outside the picture, to the left, and brakes and diverts to the right (interrupted here, too), utilizing the figures of the running horses, terrified by the wheeling sabres, and of the unhorsed Mameluke who is being stabbed.

The scene leaves aside any traditional composition and is presented as an immediate, momentary vision of a violent event, caught and stopped at a climactic instant. The truncated mode of composing the action became a tradition of its own, especially in the following century in France. The colour is contrasting, broken, often sketchy and spasmodic, in keeping with the general precipitous movement. The faces are summary and fugitive. The horses are massively built and accentuate with their heavy galloping forms the multiplication of converging movements which are directed towards the group under assault.

War aroused Goya's imagination and passionate feelings of humanity. Here he was fascinated by a vision of naked ferocity and produced one of the most burningly emotional works in the history of painting.
