The Time it Takes to be Created:
To paint your Leonardo da Vinci
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 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. La Belle Ferronniere (Portrait of a Lady from the Court of Milan)
by Leonardo da Vinci
is, therefore, not framed, and will be sent to you rolled up and packaged in a strong and secure postal tube.

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.
La belle ferroniere
is the name used for two Renaissance portrait paintings. The first is thought to be of Lucrezia Crivelli and is attributed by some to Leonardo da Vinci; it is in the Louvre. It is sometimes known as Portrait of an Unknown Woman. The other portrait, of Cecilia Gallerani, which is almost certainly by da Vinci is more often called Lady with an Ermine
The painting's name stems from ferroniere a jewel held to the forehead by a chain worn by women in the Renaissance.
Bernardino de'Conti or Boltraffio may have painted the Unknown Woman portrait. The painting is located in the Louvre museum in Paris, France. The painting was briefly featured in the opening sequence of the 2006 film The Da Vinci Code. The painting had been sold by Sir Joseph Duveen as a Leonardo, and when this was questioned his client sued in a notorious court case, eventually settled for a relatively small amount.
