The Time it Takes to be Created:To paint your Pierre-Auguste Renoir 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 8-9 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.
Shipping: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. Odalisque (An Algerian Woman) by Renoir is, therefore, not framed, and will be sent to you rolled up and packaged in a strong and secure postal tube.
You can check the price for shipping of the order on the shopping cart screen.
The paintings we create are only of museum quality. Our academy graduated 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.
Renoir met Lise Trehot when he was in his early twenties and she was just 16: her sister lived with Renoir's friend and fellow-artist Jules LeCoeur in Marlotte village.
The artist was attracted by the young girl's dark, pretty features and rounded figure. She soon became his favourite model - and mistress. He painted her more than 20 times between 1865 and 1872: in that year, the couple parted and Lise married. She never saw Renoir again.
Renoir delighted in painting Lise in different guises. In The Odalisque he painted her as an Algerian harem-girl with an inviting look in her eye. Her exotic, sumptuous dress and openly seductive pose are afar cry from the demure post-master's daughter in the real live.
