The Time it Takes to be Created:

To paint your Goya 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 6-8 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.


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 3rd of May 1808 in Madrid by Goya is, therefore, not framed, and will be sent to you rolled up and packaged in a strong and secure postal tube.

The reproduction of a painting with oil on a canvas - the process of painting in pictures step by step
The paintings we create are only of museum quality. Our academy trained 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.

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes - "The Third of May 1808" or "The Executions"

The scene represents an episode in the reprisals of the French troops. A mass execution is taking place. Three dead bodies lie in the blood; a monk and five men on the left are receiving the volley. Near them, coming up along the wall illuminated by a lantern, is another file of the condemned. It is night; against the dark sky, a church and some houses; in the foreground, circled with penetrating light and cast shadows, the brutal, merciless execution.

Our attention is attracted by the figure of the condemned man in a white shirt with his arms raised who is defying the killers, bent over and absorbed in taking aim, while the monk prays and other men make despairing gestures. It is an evocation terrible in its incisiveness, almost premonitory of more recent episodes of ferocious and indiscriminate massacre. And certainly, without a great ethical force, a profound intuition of man's barbarism, Goya could not have expressed with such Homeric gravity this supreme moment in which the millennial cult of violence and death is celebrated. His human participation in the event is grasped in the picture's atmosphere of a tragedy that has been suffered.

This is not the case in Manet's Execution of Maximilian, which was inspired by Goya's work. In Manet's painting a sort of sceptical detachment prevails, with the interest in the pictorial problem serenely dominating all else; a feeling that has no part in this terrible, fulminating epic of modern barbarism.
