Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the difference between a canvas print (Giclée) and an oil painting reproduction?
A canvas print is an image printed directly onto canvas with a computer printer using ink at high resolution. An oil painting reproduction is a museum quality oil painting, painted by hand using an experienced artist with oil paint. No printing or digital imaging is ever used.
2. What kind of materials do you use?
Our artists use only the best oil paint and canvas for our museum quality paintings.
3. Does a reproduction look 100% like the original?
It is impossible to create any reproduction that appears exactly like the original, simply because it is done entirely by hand without any computer printing. However we assure that our paintings are extremely close to the original.

4. Can you please explain the qualifications of your artists?
Each and every one of our artists has at least 10 years experience in oil painting reproduction and restoration. In addition to being highly talented, our artists have received many years of academic training in styles and art history. This translates into each artist demonstrating their own individual expertise. For example, rendering a work in an impressionist style can require the technique and experience far different from painting a portrait based on a photograph. By assigning your particular project to the most qualified artist in their specific expertise we can assure the highest quality result.
5. How much time does it take to paint a reproduction?
It depends on the size, style and complexity (i.e.,the number of subjects or detail) in the painting. The entire process typically spans 14-21 days.
