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 Tiziano Vecellio Titian 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 Emperor Carlos V on Horseback is ready and dry, it will be shipped to your delivery address. The canvas will be rolled-up in a secure postal tube.

Titian - Charles V on Horseback

Titian's portraiture was particularly intense in the second half of the decade 1540-50. During his Roman sojourn in '45, the Pope had sat for him several times. An unforgettable page in his career is the Paul III and His Nephews, a psychological study of three personalities, of a world, of an epoch.

It is not surprising that the Emperor called Titian to Augsburg - where he had convoked the Diet and was staying with his splendid court and the feudatories of his vast empire - to serve as official portraitist. To handle the numerous commissions, Titian had brought with him his son Orazio, Cesare Vecellio and an able follower, Lamberto Sustris.

The portrait of Charles V, however, was executed by Titian himself, and in quite a short time - from April to September 1548. It is a portrait commemorating the Battle of Mulberg of 1547, in which the Emperor had defeated the Protestant princes.

The image of the Emperor, however, is not that of a victorious hero. It is the symbol of a strength of will that commits the individual to contend against enormous forces, that goads him on, consumes him. We do not know how much awareness there was in the artist in creating this historic interpretation, but there is no ambiguity in the reading of the picture, and his splendid series of portraits of famous people assures us that Titian possessed the ability to penetrate men and human events. The colours are darkling, perhaps emphasized by restorations that followed the damage incurred in a fire in the 18th century. The brushwork that builds up the sumptuous armour, the severe face, is laid on heavily. The heraldic disposition of the knight on horseback is exemplary.
