While always focusing on achieving the finest quality in art, 1st Art Gallery provides fantastic paintings created by artists from around the world! We are committed to high-quality standards and dedicated customer service and require the same level from our collaborating artists.
We work with various artists worldwide who create masterpieces in the comfort of their studio and with the best materials available. Every artwork begins with a blank canvas and is entirely hand-painted to near perfection.
Real Oil Paint, Real Brushes, Real Artists, Real Art.
The Certificate of Authenticity, which arrives with every painting, provides an assurance and verifies the authenticity of the hand-painted fine art reproduction you purchased. Our artists are classically trained and have at least 15 years of experience each. In addition, the certificate verifies that every oil painting is created by hand using only the finest canvas and oil paints available.
The use of professional art supplies ensures the longevity and preservative quality of your painting.
When it comes to oil paint, we require that our artists use professional, high-quality brands like Blockx and Winsor & Newton. The brand Blockx is in the market since 1865. They only use pure pigments, and all colors are perfectly lightfast. The London-based company Winsor & Newton was founded in 1832 and is one of the leading brands for art materials worldwide. Both are perfect choices for creating high-quality paintings!
As for the support, our artists use superior quality, medium-weight, 7 oz, 100% cotton duck canvas for more delicate works or a 10 oz, 100% cotton canvas coated with acid-free titanium gesso for heavier paint applications.
The brushes used by our artists are also chosen for the best quality, keeping in mind the spring in the bristles that help give a good flow of paint when used while not leaving any loose strands on the canvas.
We use a safe and protective package to ensure you receive your new artwork in your home the same way it left the artist’s studio. Be it a rolled-up canvas or a frames painting, you will receive your artwork in mint condition!
We only use courier companies such as UPS, FedEx, and DHL for all deliveries as they are the safest and fastest shipping method. In addition, all shipments are insured and are hand-delivered to the shipping address you provide.
Once your order has been dispatched, we’ll email you a tracking number so you can track your order. Shipping usually takes three days or less.
A painting can last a lifetime when handled with care. The best way to clean it is to dust it with a light brush. Do not clean it with a moist rag or any cleaning products. It’s also best not to touch the artwork’s surface with your fingers, as the acid and oils from your fingers greatly affect the longevity of the painting. Textured paintings can be brittle, so be careful not to touch the artwork’s surface or lean anything against it.
When handling the painting, it is best to hold it by the hanger itself or the mounting surface or frame. When moving your paintings around, hold them by their edges & store them vertically against something so that the back of the artwork takes the weight, with the bottom of the artwork rested on a towel or folded sheet to prevent damage or chipping to the mount, frame or painting surface in the event it is an unframed piece.
