3. How to order an oil portrait painting?
First scan your photo(JPEG format) and send it to our email address as an attachment. It's preferable that the photo is with the highest resolution possible, so we do not miss any details. If you have any specific requirements, please send us an email. We'll answer as quickly as possible to discuss and give you instructions on how to proceed with ordering. If you are not satisfied with your oil portrait, you could send the canvas back for correction.
4. Ordering an original painting
Browse through the original pictures gallery of contemporary artists. Note: You can only choose from the originals that are present. We can not change sizes or anything, since the paintings are finished and complete. However, if a work has already sold, you can have a similar version at the same or different size. There is a constant renewal in the author works gallery, so if not today, you can find a painting of your choice later, just stay in touch.
5. Wholesale/discounted paintings
You want to buy Art but you are on a budget? Then our wholesale section is the right place for you. We offer real hand painted works at affordable discount prices. Each painting in this section is a master recreation of an earlier original which has already sold. The painting is not an exact copy although the original artist will paint it as close to original as possible. The artwork will also bear the artist's signature and will be delivered with a certificate of authenticity.
6. About the painting process.
Our Fine Art Reproductions are entirely handmade without use of artificial methods. They are painted on linen canvas with oil paints of the highest French quality. Our painters are graduates of art schools, and every one of them is a master in a particular field, which gives us the opportunity to reproduce to the highest point of perfection the style and the technique of the original old master. We have acquired those abilities for a long creative period and that's the reason why our handmade reproductions are the best, bearing the spirit of the original Great Masters.
7. Why are the fine art reproductions unframed?
There are some reasons for not framing the paintings, but the basic one is because every house has its own interior design and the frame of a painting has to fit in well with the whole interior, so you can make the best choice for a frame. There are many frame shops where you'll be advised and helped in selecting the best frame for your room or office.
The other crucial reason is safety. Our paintings are transported rolled in secure post-tubes. We wouldn't want to be responsible for a damaged painting, which traveled stretched on a frame.
8. Travel expenses and time to deliver.
Shipping is worldwide. The paintings are delivered in strong post-tubes. Travel expenses are fixed- 40 USD. Shipping tax is a one time charge and does not depend on the number of paintings you have ordered, for example if you order three paintings at a time, you will be charged only one shipping. We do not ship to PO Boxes, but only to an exact street address. In order for the paintings to reach the highest quality and get dry, the painter needs at least 3-4 weeks. Time depends on the complexity of the painting and we inform you about the stage of completion of the reproduction.
9. Refund Policy.
Our Reproductions Gallery wants you to be delighted with your purchase. If you are not completely satisfied - for any reason - with a painting you received, return the item undamaged within 20 days of receipt for correction or a full refund. Under no circumstances will a refund be granted after this time.
The refund will NOT include shipping costs, duty or customs fees (if applicable). To apply for this, the oil painting should be in the original condition and packaging with no signs of damage, plus anything included within. The credit will be applied once the painting has been received and it's condition checked.
To request a return, you must have good reasons for that. Please contact us by e-mail, explain the problem, and you will be given instructions on how to proceed.
Any customer returning items totaling a value greater than $450.00 will be charged a 25% restocking fee.
All paintings must be returned in their original condition (undamaged).
10. Special services.
We offer services which are not very common. For instance you can order fine art reproductions paintings that could be really hard to distinguish from the original masterpieces. The painting will bear every mark of the original and also be surface-cracked for an absolute similarity. However there is an additional charge for this, and it must be a subject of an additional discussion. Choose your painting and contact us. We will answer within 24 hours.
