Claude Monet F.A.Q.
Some of the most frequently asked questions are listed below. We hope the answers will give you detailed information and facilitate you. You may ask all other questions without hesitation here
How do you make your paintings?
Our reproductions are handmade with oil on canvas of high quality. In our team of painters each one is a past master in his particular field and this gives us the opportunity to reproduce to the limit of perfection the style and the technique of every original old and modern master. Of course we have acquired these abilities for a long educational and creative period and this is the reason why our handmade reproductions express the human element, the spirit and the sense of the Great Masters.
Are your paintings framed?
There are three basic reasons for not framing the paintings. Every house has its different style and design and the frame of the painting has to go well with the whole interior so you will be the one who will make the best choice for it. There are frame workshops all over the world and you will be advised and helped there in selecting the frame mostly suiting to your house.
The second reason is related with the post expenses of a framed painting. All the companies selling paintings do not transport them framed because of the high expense for post taxes which sometimes exceed the basic price of the paintings.
The next reason - safety. Our paintings are transported rolled up in secure post tubes. You can imagine the risk of damaging and breaking of the painting when it is stretched on a frame.
If you have chosen a painting on a round frame you have to be consulted in your local frame workshop about the possibility a frame of this type to be made. Don't worry if they don't make round frames we should correct the format by painting the necessary parts according to the rectangular size.
How and when will my painting be delivered?

The paintings must not be rushed as they need time for reaching the high quality and precision and also for getting dry in order not to be damaged when transported.
