Stonebreakers

Stonebreakers is a breathtaking 165 × 257 cm oil on canvas by the famous - and infamous - 19th-century artist Gustave Courbet. The original painting was made in 1849 but was destroyed in a bombing during World War II. Gustave Courbet is one of the most important painters of all time. Courbet's production was entirely out of the norm, paving the way for the early Modernists. He became his own dealer and became a model of independence to every artist. His works still impress to this day with their realistic yet gestural brushstrokes.

Stonebreakers was painted on a large rectangular canvas. The work perfectly exemplifies the artist's method at the time. He was walking along a road, going to a place where he intended to make a landscape, when he saw the two men at work. Surprised and somewhat fascinated with the scene, he asked them to pose for him. Throughout his career, Courbet addressed many social themes and had active participation in the Paris Commune, and Stonebreakers is a significant artwork that exemplifies the social aspect of his work. Courbet sought to represent reality beyond the idealism he perceived in Academic works.

Stonebreakers features two working men. The one at the right is older and has a darker complexion, probably tanned because of his time under the sun. The audience can see him through his profile, and the hat projects a low shadow on his face. He is on one of his knees and holds a long hammer. On his right side is a steel pot with a spoon and small white rocks in front of his legs, which resulted from his labor. The rock around this area is white, and Courbet captures its texture with perfection.

There is a shovel fallen in front of the man on the left. He holds a big bowl with many rocks broken by his colleague. The men's clothing is white, gray, yellow, and brown. Beyond them is a vast green field; on the two extremities, there is an area with different colors: yellow on the left and deep green on the right. Over the vast field, a dark, deep shadow covers most of that area and creates a strong contrast to the two figures at work.

Experienced Artists

All our artists have at least 15 years of experience. We only hire qualified artists with advanced degrees in Fine Arts who have completed a dissertation in European or American art.

We only use the highest quality oil paint and finest available canvas. We insist on sourcing our materials from brands that have been in business for at least a century or more.

Our most senior artists, those who have at least 25 years experience, carefully examine each and every painting that comes out of our studio. No order is shipped before it meets our standards, which are the highest in the industry.

Always Hand Painted

Some companies claim to be selling handmade paintings when in fact they use printing presses and screening methods to speed-up the reproduction process and lower costs. We've been selling genuine handmade online since 2003!

Finest quality stretching, gallery wrap or framing

Purchasing without a frame
(unstreched canvas)

When purchasing a painting on its own, it will arrive rolled inside a secure tube with an extra 1.5" of white canvas on all sides so you can easily frame it in any local frame shop.

Purchasing a frame

You may choose to purchase your painting framed, in which case, it will arrive "ready to hang". We offer more than 20 beautiful models, all hand finished and expertly assembled by our experienced framers.

Note that for safety reasons we can only frame up to a certain size. Once the maximum size is reached the framing option is automatically disabled.

purchasing-img
Purchasing a Stretching Service

If you are planning to frame your painting yourself, use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service, meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.

Purchasing a Gallery Wrap

If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.

Door to door fully insured courier delivery

All orders ship with UPS, FedEx or DHL and will arrive directly to your home or office. A tracking number will be emailed to you as soon as the order leaves our studio so you can track it online. All orders ship express and usually arrive within 4-5 days from the shipping date. Due to shipping restraints, many of our framed, stretched, and oversize paintings may take 6-21 days for arrival depending on the safest route determined by the postal service.
