Home> About The Art

Q: Do you sell paintings or prints?
A: We only sell 100% handmade oil paintings, hand painted by experienced artists. These are oil on canvas genuine masterpieces and each stroke, texture and nuance is created by hand - in the same way the original paintings were created. We use no printing, pressing or technological tricks to create our paintings. 

Q: What's the process? 
A: As we produce paintings, not prints, it is actually quite complicated. You can see a detailed description here.

Q: Are your reproductions copyrighted works? 
A: Every painting in our gallery is either in the public domain or being sold under license from the estate of the artist. There's no need to worry about copyright infringement. If you find on our database a work of art which you suspect as being unlicensed, please notify us immediately.

Q: What's the biggest size I can order?
A: As you'll see on our order form, our largest paintings are 120 inches by 120 Inches (3 meters by 3 meters). However, if you have a special request, our artists can work on even much larger canvases - there is no limit.

Q: Most of your sizes are similar height:width ratios. Can I order something different?
A: Yes. You can request paintings in any size you want. Some customers like to follow the painting's original aspect ratio, keeping the original relation between the painting's length and width. If the size you need does not match the painting's original aspect ratio our experienced artists will extend or reduce some of the painting's background to achieve the best possible result. We can also reproduce detail paintings of a larger original, e.g. Mona Lisa's smile, or a part of the Sistine Chapel. Our artists are very flexible and there is not limit to what they can do. Just let us know what you want.

Q:  I have a photograph. Can you paint it?
A: Of course. Every day, we create original pieces from photographs that our customers provide. We produce portraits recreate wedding photos and even paint beloved family pets. Here is a detailed description of our portrait services. 
We have experience adding detail to a painting from multiple photographs. Perhaps it's detail for a family crest, the writing on a sweatshirt or just a hairstyle. Our artists can use the details that you provide to make your painting capture even more details than the original photograph did.
We can paint color portraits from old black and white photos or damaged photos and can even provide some color correction.
