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 Surrender of Breda (Las Lanzas) 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.

The Surrender of Breda
This is one of the most important and problematical works of Velazquez. Despite the probable existence of preliminary drawings (for example, in the National Library, Madrid), the canvas underwent a very complicated process of development in successive stages, as X-rays have revealed (changes in the position of the horse, the central group, the position of the lances seen against the plain and the cloudy sky, etc.). The artist's own interest in this masterpiece is shown by his inclusion, on the far right, of a self-portrait. The surface is divided into four parts in a sensitive proportional modulation that intensifies the general dynamic rhythm. Against this rectangular division, around the central group of Nassau and Spinola, there are two curved banks of figures (with the big horse that is turning away): the general staff and the soldiers. Beyond them is the encampment with other lancers sketched in, and in the distance the city and its burning fortifications in the plain that extends to the distant horizon. All the figures are powerfully individualized portraits; the atmosphere is that of an action-camera shot, with everything caught in motion. It is a sunny day; the scene is inundated with vivid, transparent colours contrasting with the magnificent lances seen against the light, the halberds to the left, the moving shadows on the ground and the kaleidoscope of parade uniforms. There is neither rhetoric nor Spanish hauteur in this work; indeed, considering the time, it is a sort of calm and good-natured timbre that one registers, in part because Velazquez reduced but did not eliminate the original embrace of the victor and the vanquished.
