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.

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:

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.

Velazquez - Portrait of Philip IV

Painted between 1652 and 1653 (according to Lopez-Rey), and in any case before 1655 (when it was engraved by Pedro de Villafranca), this is the prototype from life of numerous half-length portraits of the King (others are in: London, National Gallery; Cincinnati Museum; Vienna, Kunst-historisches Museum; Madrid, Marques de Argiieso; Glasgow, Art Gallery; Saint Petersburg, Hermitage; Madrid, Academia de S. Fernando; Madrid, Istitudo de Valencia de Don Juan; Edinburgh, National Gallery; Bilbao Museum; Turin, Galleria Sabauda; Montreal, Van Home Collection, etc.). It also served for numerous other full-length portraits of Philip in various poses and kinds of dress, executed by the school of Velazquez to satisfy the need for likenesses of the sovereign in offices, embassies and courts.

These works are generally on a high technical level, but lack the burning interior quality that characterizes the paintings by the artist's own hand. Its execution is extremely rapid and generalized, done in a few moments, and mainly concentrated on the head - surrounded by an even, dark grey ground - but also stressed in the white collar and the very simple black silk garment.

The imperious and at the same time perturbed face of the king - who has been posed to show his regality - is caught in a moment that permits an inner uncertainty, a diffident timidity, a defensive haughtiness to come through. The artist has caught these traits by an intuitive sounding of the depths of his subject, which do not appear in the official portraits. The latter have nothing of the hidden penetration of the Spanish ruler's character, and reveal mainly or only his pride, without the psychological complications.
