High quality and detailing in every inch are time consuming. The reproduction of Jacopo Robusti Tintoretto 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 Moses Saved from the Waters 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.
After adding your artwork to the shopping cart, you will be able to check the delivery price using the Estimate Shipping and Tax tool.

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.

With six other biblical scenes - Judith and Holofernes, Susanna and the Elders, The Queen of Sheha before Solomon, Esther before Ahasuerus, Joseph and Potiphar's Wife, The Purification of the Midianite Virgins (unfortunately damaged and repainted) - it made up the decoration of a ceiling in a palace in Venice, where Velazquez bought them, during his second Venetian sojourn, for Philip IV.
The centrepiece must have been the Purification of the Midianite Virgins, as the Spanish historian, Palomino de Castro, clearly states; the other rectangular canvases formed a frieze around it. The decorative sumptuousness of the paintings, the illusionistic perspective frameworks and the rich colour call for a fairly early dating: the years between 1550 and 1555, when Tintoretto came closest to Paolo Veronese. This work in particular, with its harmonious rhythm of the figures linked by broad curvilinear cadences echoed by the branches bending over the group in which Moses is at dead centre, reminds us of Veronese's modules.
Though these stem from Mannerism, they are quieted by the instinct for equilibrium typical of Paolo, in whom Tintoretto found inspiration at this moment. We are far from the violence of the first perspective experiments inspired by Mantuan examples, which Tintoretto had carried out in the notable series of ceiling paintings for a Venetian palace - a series that is now in the Galleria Estense, Modena.
