When we started this company, it dawned upon us that we are in the unique position to provide museum gallery artwork quality for discount prices. That concept eventually became the foundation for our online company - we take pride in spreading the joy of beautiful, high-end oil paintings to the budget-conscious consumer.
Since we are the direct source of your original, heirloom-quality oil painting, with no 'middle man', no mall or boutique rent and no commissions to pay, we pass our savings of up to 70% on straight to you. The artwork is the same impeccable quality you would find in upscale museum galleries, but without the exorbitant costs normally associated with museum gallery pricing.
In this way we fulfill our mission of making fine art available to anyone who appreciates the finer things in life.
We email high-resolution photos of each painting to you for approval before shipping. Changes can be requested and will be made by the artist. This process will be repeated until you are happy. Once the painting is sent and you receive it, you still have 30 days to return the painting under our 100% money back guarantee. A full refund is provided and you won't be charged any shipping costs.
We take deep pride in exceeding our customer's expectations, and our delivery of your oil painting is just as carefully crafted as our fine oil paintings. We are proud to offer 100% FREE shipping to anywhere in the world on both purchases and refunds (two-way free shipping).

Courtship - The Proposal
by Lawrence Alma-Tadema
Courtship - The Proposal - Description
Courtship-the Proposal is a painting by Victorian Classicist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. This oil, painted on stretched canvas, was completed in the year 1896. The tone of this painting differs slightly from the majority of Alma-Tadema’s work, with a noticeable stray from his usual palette of brilliant or muted blues juxtaposed against muted tones of pink, red and green. Here is a work resounding in shades of grey and white. Behind the pair an ocean lies, lightened to the point of ambiguity. Consistent with Alma-Tadema’s approach is the strawberry-blonde hair situated atop a head of milky white skin. The cheeks are also rosy. This is a characteristic found amongst many women in Alma-Tadema’s repertoire. The woman’s bright head stands out as the visual center for Alma-Tadema’s painting like so many others by him. Her body position commands the attention of the observer, whose eyes are forced to flow up the white dress until meeting her averted eyes. The man, more consistent with the colors of the background, plays second fiddle to the eye’s attention based on the fact that his tone matches the stems of the flowers growing on the tree behind the woman as well as the statue to the right of him. The statue assists in the lining up of heads in this composition, a classical arrangement that was no accident by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema.

“ I'm an interior designer and purchasing from CheapOilPainting just makes the most sense. ”
-Sarah Berkins, Free Spirit Designs
Here are five great reasons to commission a hand-painted oil reproduction instead of buying a print:
Authentic Museum Gallery Look, Feel, and Smell - there's nothing like seeing the energy and texture of beautifully rendered, hand-painted oil. The smell, the patina, the play of light across the surface, and the intrinsic value deliver a much richer experience than the look of a flat, dull print.
Unique Custom Artwork - you can have your heirloom-quality oil painting done to your specifications; a custom made work of original art.
Timeless Beauty - beautiful, high-quality oil reproductions lasts for generations without fading, tearing, water staining or discoloring the way prints do.
Long-Term Value - oil paintings tend to hold their value longer than mass-produced commercial prints, so you'll be making a smarter investment.
Family Treasure - you'll have an original, one-of-a-kind, heirloom-quality oil painting for generations to come, showing class and prestige.
Each and every painting that leaves our facility is fully guaranteed to be painted 100% by hand or we promptly refund your money. Our highly trained professional artists take the time to make sure that every hand painted masterpiece truly reproduces museum quality artwork on canvas. In fact, we're so confident in our craftsmanship that all of our oil paintings are backed through our 30-day money-back guarantee.

We are committed to delivering premium customer service and your satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us.
You may be wondering why we offer canvases of differing sizes. We've answered some of your most common questions below:
"Why offer sizes different from the original?"
Your available display-space may work better with a canvas size suited to the location you have selected for your heirloom quality reproduction. By offering you a choice of painting sizes, you can better accommodate your personal interior-design needs.
"Will the proportions of the original work change if a different sized canvas is used?"
No, not unless the ratio you select is different. A direct 'scale' version can be created without altering the elements or their relationship to each other, in the same way a photo can be resized 'to scale' without changing the image proportions.
"Will the original design or any of the artwork be cut off?"
No, not unless you have a specific request to do so.
