Frequently Asked Questions

Quality Reproduction Art

How close to the original will my reproduction be?
It is our goal to achieve reproductions that are as close as possible to the original. Our artists have experience and expertise in the full spectrum of styles, ranging from traditional, renaissance, romantic and impressionist through to abstract and modern art. But remember these reproductions are hand-painted and some variation from the original is possible.

What is the process and quality of the reproductions?
Every painting is done on 100% cotton artist canvas using the highest quality oils. On delivery you will be able to see, touch and feel the brush strokes of our artists and smell the scent of the oils.

The reproductions are NOT:

  • Prints-on-canvas
  • Print transfers
  • 'Texturised' prints-on-canvas
  • Lithographs
  • Giclee prints

What kind of guarantee do you offer?
We require a deposit of 50% of the quoted reproduction price to set the order in motion and only make a request for the balance and the cost of p&p once you have received it. If on receipt of the painting, the reproduction is not to your satisfaction within reasonable limits**, we ask that in the first instance you contact us. If the matter can not be mutually resolved, just return (WITH INSURANCE) the painting to us WITHIN 15 DAYS OF RECEIPT and we will refund your initial deposit.

** We ask the customer to appreciate that the paintings are hand-painted oil on canvas reproductions (not photocopies from the original and then projected onto canvas) and that there will be minor variations from the original. Also for many masterpieces the colours have now faded, the older the more likely the case, whereas with our reproductions being freshly painted the colours can be more vibrant.

How much will the painting cost?
We do not show the cost of any of the paintings shown in our Artists A-Z or Best Sellers. This is because prices vary according to the size of canvas and the level of complexity/detail in the painting itself. Once you have decided on a painting and size, simply click on the "Add to Request Quote" below the large image of the painting. We endeavour to reply on the same day. The standard canvas sizes are listed alongside the "...Request Quote" button but usually within reason we can accommodate any size that a customer requires.

How are the paintings posted and how much are the postage/shipping prices?
The paintings are posted/shipped wrapped in protective plastic sheets and rolled up within an extremely sturdy tube. The postage/shipping prices vary according to the canvas size but, as a guide, for a 24" x 36" (60 x 90 cm) picture the postal/shipping prices (including insurance) are :

U.K.: £8.00
Elsewhere: to be advised

Why do you supply the paintings unframed?
The paintings are delivered in a tube unstretched and unframed. A painted canvas is not liable to import duty in most countries but with a frame is often liable. The customer is best suited to choose the style/material/colour of the frame to match the décor of the room intended to house the painting.
