The Carpet Merchant by Jean-Leon Gerome is my first order of a painting by 1st-art-gallery.com. I received my painting 2 months after I placed the order. Though it took a long time, I am very pleased with it. I intend to place more orders and to recommend the site to family and friends. NOTE FROM 1ST ART GALLERY: - orders usually ship within 4-5 weeks, this order took a bit longer than usual due to the complexity of the painting. We're sorry for the delay, we do write on our website that the 4-5 weeks is only an estimate and the final delivery time depends on the size and complexity of the painting. Some are delivered within two weeks, but some within five or six. Thank you again for your order!
