Diego Rodriguez de Silva Velazquez (1599-1660)


Prado Museum Madrid Spain

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 Velazquez 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. The Forge of Vulcan by Velazquez 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 reproduction of a painting with oil on a canvas - the process of painting in pictures step by step
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.

Velazquez - The Forge of Vulcan

In this canvas of his early maturity, Velazquez still shows his attraction to the compositions and smooth constructions of domestic interiors that have their origin in Caravaggio.

To this tradition also belongs the composition with its diagonal counterpoised planes and directional thrusts forward and to the background, all tied together in a solid framework. The axis of the picture is central, with oblique ramifications and displacements in all directions, converging and diverging at the same time, arresting the internal structure at the extremity of connection and equilibrium.

The grace and bearing of the anatomically precise nudes, the easy freedom of the gestures, the varying reactions of the personages in the circuit of the mimed dialogue, the changing colours under the daylight and sunny illumination - all show the artist's sensitivity to the style of Rubens, whom he had met in Madrid in 1628. Velazquez, however, does not diverge from his own temperament of earthy fullness and community with the real world; he rejects emotional transports and bombast of any sort. Even the presence of Apollo, crowned with laurel, his head radiating light, does not alter the familiar character of a scene in a forge.
