Transform your living room into a French museum
These masterpieces are not mass produced?
each one is created one brush stroke at a time.
As an art lover, I would stand in the Musee d’Orsay all day, hypnotized by the tiny brush strokes and sublime swirls of color. And part of me always wanted to bring home a Picasso, Matisse or a Van Gogh. But then there was always that issue of price. I never seemed to have an extra $100 million lying around. Now I don’t need it.
Officially, I’m not an art historian. But I’ve been to some of the finest museums in the world and have to say that the detail and craftsmanship in these paintings is remarkable. If you’ve ever stood face to face with a true masterpiece, you know that there’s no substitute for real oil paint on canvas. These reproductions are created one brush stroke at a time, by classically trained artists, using the same “impasto” technique of the original masters. There’s no computer manipulation and no assembly line. In fact, it takes at least 10 days before the paintings are even dry enough to handle.
Each masterpiece reproduction is a genuine, hand-painted oil on canvas, set into a 23" x 18" antiqued-gilded frame.

Not close enough to original
While the copy I received is a fairly good painting on its own it doesn’t resemble the original Monet enough. Certain details such as the mooring poles are inaccurate. The yellow in the background on the left of the painting are blobs of color rather than integrated into the background. Looks almost like sails for the gondolas which are also not correctly painted. The water is painted ok but not like the original or even the copy shown on the website. Windows on the church building not shown in correct area and in one place where no windows are depicted on original at least not that large. I’m a little disappointed in this copy. Should adhere closer to the original.
