The effects of ageing and antiqueness impart to a painting the charm of authenticity and nobility. Thus, a reproduction of a painting would impart unique style and appearance to any interior.
The process of making our painting reproductions look old and cracked is in absolute conformity with the technology of oil painting, and in no way does it damage the painting.
Please see some examples of art reproductions that have been made to look old in our studio.

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 4-5 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.
Shipping: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. Prince Baltasar Carlos as a Hunter by Velazquez is, therefore, not framed, and will be sent to you rolled up and packaged in a strong and secure postal tube.

The paintings we create are only of museum quality. Our academically 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.
Dress, with Two Dogs. The composition is learned, but simple. Restricted above by the branches of an oak tree, in the lower part of the canvas the figure of the prince and his arquebus is composed in an angular form directed upwards, while the big dog to the left closes off the figure and encircles it. This simple composition, however, is related to a double diagonal directed towards the background to the right and the tree trunk; and in correspondence there are all the levels of the distant landscape divided by valleys and slanting ridges. With a perceptible release, the figure of the prince arrests this falling movement, as if it had energetically overcome some opposing force. In this case, too, the work has the immediate appearance of splendid representation affirming the majesty of kings; but going beyond the required theme, the artist has made the painting into a locus of forces just subdued, of momentary equilibrium between intense pulls, expressing a tension shown throughout, from the format to the manner of painting, which is extraordinarily rich in flowing colour and contrasts. Also unusual is the way the figures are cut so that they seem taut and compressed at the same time. Abandoning traditional ideas of completeness, the artist crops them (see the dog on the right) as if they had been unexpectedly seen and recorded, a kind of vision that will be understood and taken up by the great French Impressionists, beginning with Manet, to express the instantaneous look of modernity.
