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 Rogier van der Weyden 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 Descent from the Cross 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.

Rogier van der Weyden - Descent from the Cross

This marks the moment of the artist's maturity and is one of the most monumental conceptions. The scene, as in contemporaneous sculpture, directly relates to theatrical performances.

The space is a narrow stage on which the sculptural figures are compressed in twos - threes at the centre - that do not protrude beyond the architectural setting. Walls close off the stage. The ground is rocky and has flowers growing in it. The composition moves from St. John to the Magdalen on the right.

In this large curve, the fainting Madonna and the lifeless body of Christ inscribe two big, repeating ellipses, moving laterally and arrested above by other curves moving in the opposite direction. This web of agitated motion (to which other associated elements are connected) also has repercussions from front to back in the entangled and embracing figures. The complex thus organized in a narrow space, within a reduced volume, assumes an agitated, dramatic quality through the containment of geometric and volumetric rhythms. This is reinforced by internally connected flows and returns, which require a visual itinerary that is continuous, but rich in breaks and contrasts.

To this compositional drama is added the plastic elements of the figures and the drapery - restless and fragmented - as well as the discontinuous rhythm of the distances both aboye and below of the intersecting solids and voids. The artist does not spare sumptuous and brilliant notes in the grandiose composition, which achieves by stylistic means a rare power of tragic representation.
