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 Joachim Patinir 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 7-8 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 Charon Crossing the Styx 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.

Joachim Patinir - Landscape with the Stygian Lake

The art of this master landscapist is based on a knowledge of Bosch, but also of Durer and of Leonardo da Vinci, perhaps through the medium of Metsys.

Amid groups of high dolomitic rocks, the landscape opens out to distant vistas, like topographical air views, following a Leonardesque norm of perspective in which the near view is chromatically rich and full, with the atmosphere becoming progressively more blue as the distance increases. The subject of the painting is clearly a pretext, and the landscape is the hero.

Durer noted in his diary that Patinir was a 'gut landschaftsmaler' - a good landscape painter - thus establishing not so much his specialization as his independent orientation.

In this work, too, the Elysian Fields; Charon in his boat with the damned soul, in the centre; flaming and smoking Tartarus to the right, its entrance guarded by the dog Cerberus - these are only anecdotal elements introduced in a balanced, contrasting mixture that is almost pre-Romantic of a 'blessed shore' of hills, woods and rivers, and a fire that spreads its black soot, but cannot alter the fascinating vision of immensity. There is a magic in these natural elements, the deep amorous spell of a flourishing land that appears to have been caught in a moment of fresh and clear dawn, at the awakening of all things in the visible world.
