1st Art Gallery just completed our 10th painting and as usual it was an excellent copy of an old master artwork titled: “The Battle of Mars and Minerva.” Once again from start to finish you couldn't ask for a smoother transaction. We are already considering ordering our 11th painting…. Highly recommend First Art Gallery!
We requested some special cropping on this one. The original painting was a rectangular landscape style, but we needed it to be square in order to fit a frame we already had and to match a similar time-period painting. In the remarks section of the order form we noted the dimensions we needed and told them what they could crop out. In addition, I cropped their website photo to make it square, attached it to an email and sent it to them along with our order number and instructions. They did a perfect job of cropping it into a square painting.
If you decide to give them a try you won't be disappointed. You can preview the painting before they ship it. Just add a note in the comments section during the checkout process requesting that they send you a photo of the completed painting before they ship it. We've done that with each of the 10 paintings we ordered. They sent us a photo of the finished painting to approve before they shipped it. After I approved it, the painting arrived about a week or so later. Doesn't get any better than that! I’ve tried ordering paintings from artists selling on two major online auction sites, one in the U.S. and one in China. I wound up having to donate them – total junk… If you want an oil painting, use 1st Art Gallery, you won’t be disappointed.
