If you don't own an original painting, we have access to every conceivable subject, style and medium; from the masterpieces of national museums to the hidden treasures of
private collections to create a wonderful Family Copy for you.
For over 25 years, we have worked with Bridgeman Images; the world's leading specialists in the distribution of fine art, cultural and historical media for reproduction.
If you don't have an original, we have access to over 4 million paintings covering every conceivable subject, style and medium; from the masterpieces of national museums to the hidden treasures of private collections, from which we can produce a wonderful Family Copy.
RESEARCH & COPYRIGHT
We will first discuss a research brief for your picture, which could be by a particular artist, subject, style or medium.
Once we have concluded our research we will send you a lightbox of low-resolution images from which you may choose.
Having chosen your preferred painting, we will negotiate the necessary copyright fees, and the high-resolution image will be released to us.
PROOFING, PRINTING &
Once in receipt of the image we will output a number of colour print proofs onto a substrate closely matching that of the original picture.
Upon either feedback provided to us, or our own proofing, we will adjust the colours accordingly to ensure a perfect match, before sending you a final print proof for approval.
Using the highest resolution digital printing technology available, we will ensure your painting is reproduced with the richest colour and perfect tonal ranges.
The final and most critical stage in producing an authentic reproduction is the hand finishing phase, which allows our highly-skilled specialists to recapture the subtle texture of brush strokes by applying top coats of varnish.
FRAMING & DELIVERY
Your picture can be provided:
> As a rolled canvas with separate stretchers for assembly by a framer.
> With the canvas mounted on stretchers ready for framing.
> As a fully-framed picture. We work in partnership with the finest framers to provide either reproduction or antique
frames contemporaneous with your picture.
> Complete with the most advanced LED picture lighting to ensure your Family Copy is perfectly lit.
We can ship your picture worldwide using our international carriers. Each picture is wrapped, crated and shipped using a tracked service. All pictures are insured during transit.
"I was referred to Family Copies through a friend to research and reproduce some family paintings which had previously been sold by my great grandfather, they not only found them, negotiated the copyright, but produced wonderful copies."
