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 Luis Egidio Melendez 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 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 Still Life with Salmon, Lemon and Three Vessels 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.

Luis Egidio Meléndez - Still-life with Salmon and Lemon

In the reduction and simplification of composed images, Melendez went back to 17th-century Italian and Dutch models of the school of Caravaggio. and shows influences from Velazquez, whom he undoubtedly observed with filial spirit. Thus the single source of light isolates and exalts every object with its own individual colouration, and scans the connection along the diagonal that meets the trihedral disposition of vases on the left. There is no lack of textural observation and sensitive taste for materials, especially in the meat of the salmon, the difference between the vessels, the translucent lemon peel. The immobile composition has authority and a silent density. It has been pondered and animated in terms of light and colour and has a lasting, intense fascination. In pictures like this, Melendez passed over the recent fashion for the Flemish taste or for Mario dei Fiori, as seen in such immediate precedents as the work of Juan de Arellano or Perez, and returned to the models of Sanchez Cotan, Juan de Espinosa, Pedro de Camprobin and other artists of the first half of the 17th century.
