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 Pierre-Auguste Renoir 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 10-16 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.

Over 20 Years Experience
Only Museum Quality

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.

The Luncheon of the Boating Party
Renoir began work on the Luncheon of the Boating Party in the summer of 1881. It was a subject that he had been "itching" to paint for sometime - a merry group of friends lunching on the terrace of the Restaurant Fournaise at the Isle of Chatou on the River Seine. A friend named Baron Barbier, a good-natured regimental captain who much preferred horses to paintings, volunteered to stage-manage the affair - rounding up all Renoir's friends and even making sure the boats were properly positioned for the background. Then Renoir began to make studies and sketches on the spot. The result is an Impressionist masterpiece, filled with a spirit of "joie de vivre". But the picture marked the end of an era. Shortly afterwards Renoir changed his style.

Boats on the Seine
The boats glimpsed in the background remind us that the friends relaxing over lunch have just returned from the river.

Renoir's future wife
This young woman, shown in a remarkably natural pose, is Aline Charigot, Renoir's wife-to-be. The Restaurant Fournaise was their favourite meeting place at the time.

The Restaurant Fournaise
Sunday-trippers flocked to this restaurant near Chatou. They ate out on the first-floor terrace overlooking the Seine.

Renoir's skill as a painter is shown in this sparkling still-life. The bottles and glasses take on all the colours of the objects around them.

Friends Around the Table
The proprietor
M. Fournaise, the landlord, and his daughter, "the lovely Alphonsine".

The organizer
Baron Barbier, in the top hat, helped Renoir round up all the friends who appear in the painting. He chats with the proprietor's son. The girl drinking is one of Renoir's favourite models, Angele, who talked non-stop while she posed.

The hypnotist
Lestringuez, in the bowler hat-a friend fascinated by the occult and a demon hypnotist - stands with Paul Lhote. Despite being "as near-sighted as a mole", Lhote had a reputation as a ladies' man Here he flirts with the actress Jeanne Samary.

The boating enthusiast
Gustave Caillebotte, in the straw hat, was a talented artist and boating enthusiast. He is listening to the actress Ellen Andree. Behind them stands the journalist Maggiolo.

"The Impressionists reach the summit of their art when they paint our French Sundays."
French critic

We received the painting reproduction of Luncheon of the Boating Party recently and after having it framed, we just hung it on our family room wall alongside our other five paintings from TOPofART. It is stunning and gorgeous. This painting took a long time after ordering, but we're very happy with the results. Michael Orlov's artistic talent is exceptional.

The painting turned out beautiful. We ordered the original size so it took some time but it was well worth the wait. The paint colors are rich and vibrant, excellent quality! This is our second piece from Top of Art. I highly recommend using them. We are very happy with the results!
