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 Buffoon Diego de Acedo 'The Cousin' 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.

Velazquez - Don Diego de Acedo

The dwarf is represented in his function as secretary of the Council of the Signet, or Privy Seal. The figure and the books, papers and inkwell stand out undisturbed by the landscape background, with its threatening sky above a broken line of distant mountains. By setting him in a grandiose triangular composition, Velazquez has made of his deformed subject a hero (in fact, Don Diego was wounded at Molina in 1643, in the attempted assassination of Olivares), austere and pensive in his chaste garb, expressive of a penetrating and inquiring humanity. The still-life also elevates the subject, the intact whiteness of the books making a vigorous but contained contrast with the black hat and garments.
