This painting reproduction will be completely painted by hand with oil paints on a blank linen canvas. We add additional 1.6" (4cm) of blank canvas above the offered size which will be used to stretch the canvas on a stretcher-bar.
The Time it Takes to be Created:
To paint your Titian
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 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.
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. Pieta
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 the order on the shopping cart screen.
The paintings we create are only of museum quality. Our academy trained 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.
is the last painting by the Italian master Titian (c. 1575-1576). It is housed in the Gallerie dell'Accademia of Venice.
The picture represents, over the background of a larger niche in Mannerist style, the Madonna supporting the body of Christ, with the help of a knelled Nicodemus. The latter is probably self-portrait of Titian, represented as if he saw his also upcoming death in the Christ's face. On the left, standing and forming an ideal triangle, is Mary Magdalene.
Another small self-portrait, together with his son Orazio, is showed in the base of one of the columns surrounding the niche. The picture is generally considered Titian's last: an inscription in the lower part of the picture informs that it was finished by Palma the Younger.
The dark and mellow colors, and the general unfinished appearance, contribute to give the picture a spectral, disquieting atmosphere.
