I wanted to have a painting of India’s best known modern artist MF Hussain for a long time and I could not afford to buy one original. Then I stumbled upon 1st art Gallery while surfing the internet. I requested them to reproduce his “Gopala" and I was extremely happy that I did. The delivery was prompt and communication at all stages was very good. The painting itself is very good quality and I am amazed that they actually reproduce the finest details. The main advantage of ordering with them is that you can have the exact size that may fit on the wall of your choice and you can choose the painting that matches the colour scheme of your room. They did not have this particular painting on their website and I sent them a picture and they did a fantastic job. This painting has really livened up my TV room. I will definitely order more from them and I would highly recommend their work for anyone who wants reproductions.

I wanted to buy a reproduction of this Klimt painting and read up on multiple companies who provided this service. The reviews generally led me in the direction of 1st Art Gallery as being a good quality painting. I was still a little hesitant as it was my first time buying from them but after getting the painting I was in awe at how fantastic it looked. The painting quality exceeded every expectation I had. I've only had it on my wall for about 2 weeks but I still find myself walking in to the room and staring at the painting thinking how amazing it is and suddenly 20 minutes has gone by and I'm still staring at it. I will definitely be buying more from them in the future, couldn't recommend them enough!

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.

This is to let you know how pleased I am with my Charles Rennie Mackintosh painting "The Wassail". I initially contacted another firm that advertised this painting as one of their offerings; however, several weeks after submitting my order I was informed that they could not reproduce this particular painting. Because of this initial experience I was skeptical that 1st Art Gallery could do an acceptable job. My expectations were a bit on the low side but when my painting arrived two days ago, I was delighted with the work. It was well worth the money spent and so much better than a print. Count me as one of your many happy customers.

Thank you for checking on this for me. You guys do great work and it's wonderful dealing with a company that has the customer service you have.

Hello and God bless you All, The picture was breath taking and moved me to tears. I have been looking at this piece of art work for the last few years. Upon receiving it I was so overjoyed and excited that I could not stop starring at it. The smell of the oils and the attention to detail were well worth the wait. I can't stop talking about the wonderful job that you have done! You are true professionals and I can't wait to buy my next piece.

1st Art Gallery was a pleasure to work with — they responded quickly to my questions, kept me informed and they show you the painting for your approval before shipping it. And, importantly, they readily accepted the request I made regarding the shadows on the subject’s face, made them and the finished painting looks terrific. This was for a copy of a painting that is not famous and had to be customized and was done to the special size I needed. I am very satisfied with 1st Art Gallery in all respects: quality, friendliness, responsiveness to requests/changes, timeliness, and price. If I would like another special painting copied, I would not hesitate to use 1st Art Gallery again.

I hope you had a great Christmas time! There was quite a lot of stuff going on over here, so I didn't have much time to send you the images that I have included in this email (the ready framed paining with and without me in the picture). As I still have more paintings on my list, there will be more orders in 2018. Just not now, because I am moving again. Orders and video will follow as soon as things are settled over here. All the best for 2018, have a good end of this year and a great party for New Year's Eve! I hope you like the frame that I gave the latest painting.

I got a beautiful copy of an original that is delightful to look at.I was kept informed how the painting was progressing and was sent photos of it when it was finished. They asked for my comments and were willing to correct anything that I was not happy with (which was only a minor detail).The painting arrived in good time once it was finished and was extremely well packed.

The first was from another company that advertised to do paintings but to be honest, it was terrible. Cheaper yes, but truly awful. It was not a copy but an artist who interpreted John Constable's work . I then considered a photo print copy that turned out to be just as bad. I finally bit the bullet for a few dollars more and went back to First Art Gallery. I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you, thank you, thank you I can now hang this wonderful painting in my home.

I have spent hours looking at my beautiful painting of this historical scene. The artist captured so beautifully the faces of the people, all gazing with adoration at their heroine. The artist also depicted superbly the medieval houses of Orleans. Most critically, the artist captured perfectly the bravery and determination of the young saint. When I saw her face, I was moved to tears.

I am delighted with this artist’s rendering of the surrender of Paderborn to Charlemagne. The artist has depicted perfectly all the details, thereby evoking the powerful drama of the occasion. This artist is a master of texture as well; the painting looks as though it was painted in the 19th Century! I am so delighted with this wonderful painting; it will be treasured by my family for generations.

I took the plunge and ordered a bunch of paintings. Honestly, the quality is incredible. I've walked into countless art galleries and all they sell is prints that come out of some high resolution printer. Nothing is even real. So I was actually a little hesitant at first when I ordered, but glad I did.You can smell the oil paint. It is amazing. And it's real. I've ordered about 8 paintings so far and will be ordering more.
