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 American Gothic is ready and dry, it will be shipped to your delivery address. The canvas will be rolled-up in a secure postal tube.

The painting depicts a farmer standing beside his daughter in front of a Gothic-style house. The farmer holds a pitchfork, while the daughter stands beside him with a somber expression on her face. The painting is set against a backdrop of rolling hills and a cloudy sky, creating a sense of isolation and timelessness.
"American Gothic" is widely regarded as a commentary on rural life in the Midwest region of the United States. The Gothic-style house in the painting is based on a real house in Eldon, Iowa, and the figures in the painting are said to represent the values and traditions of rural America. The painting's title, "American Gothic," is a nod to the Gothic architectural style of the house, as well as a reference to the Gothic literary tradition, which often explores themes of isolation, death, and the supernatural.
"American Gothic" has been interpreted in many different ways over the years, and it continues to inspire discussions and debates about its meaning and significance. Nevertheless, it remains one of the most famous and beloved images of 20th-century American art, and it is widely recognized as one of Grant Wood's greatest masterpieces.
