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 Diego Rodriguez de Silva Velazquez 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 Forge of Vulcan 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.

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.
