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 Giovanni Battista Tiepolo 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 The Immaculate Conception 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.

Giambattista Tiepolo - The Immaculate Conception

On March 31, 1762, Tiepolo left for Madrid with his sons Domenico and Lorenzo, on the invitation of Charles III, to fresco the throne room. This demanding commission was successfully carried out and the Venetian was asked to decorate other halls. Then there seems to have been a halt in Tiepolo's production in 1765-66, and in 1767 the painter asked the court for more work. Despite the obvious hostility of the King's Confessor, Padre de Electa, and the manifest rivalry of other painters - among them Mengs - he obtained an order to execute seven large canvases for the church of S. Pascual de Aranjuez.

The Immaculate Conception belongs to this series, which is religious not only in iconographic theme but also in interior motivation. The subject was not new to Tiepolo. He took up again the iconography of the altarpiece now in the museum of Vicenza: a representation of the Virgin as a celestial being crushing underfoot a serpent that is attacking the earth, while angels adore her. A stylistic comparison throws light on the evolution of Tiepolo's style in the last years of his career.

In the Vicenza altarpiece, datable about 1735, the Virgin is solidly constructed, following a module of Piazzetta's. Her white garment seems to emit flashes, and the violence of the light and shade also throws the soft limbs of the cupids into strong relief. In the Madrid picture, all violence is gone. Light emanates without combustion and discreet little angels lean adoringly from the soft cloud. The ascending motion of the Virgin is accentuated, and around her the mantle swells and palpitates, like a sail filling with wind. A very fine sketch for the painting is in London, in the collection of Lord Kinnaird.
