Shipping/Handling/Insurance Policy

We always ship our paintings free of charge worldwide, or the buyer pays actual shipping charges, if this is mentioned in the listing. The buyer never pays for handling or insurance charges.

Restocking Fee

We do not sell on a trial basis unless specified during the transaction. If an item is returned, buyer will be responsible for shipping costs both ways and a 15% re-stocking fee will occur. We feel that all or pictures and descriptions are accurate, so if you have any questions about an item, email us before purchasing. All the paintings must be returned in the original packing. Refunding the purchase price will be only done after the item is returned, and if we are satisfied that it is in the same condition as when it left our gallery. The only exception for a full refund with shipping costs and no restocking fee is if our description was not accurate, and we reach an agreement that the fault was ours.

Our paintings are always shipped with the highest care possible, in professional shipment boxes for paintings, very well protected. If there is a problem with shipping damage, we will look into this and solve it with a partial money payback to the buyer, regarding the damage to the painting. ( our shipments are insured) Though, one exception: with antique "gesso" frames, there is always a ( slight) possibility of gesso loss during shipment, due to temperature differences and vibrations during shipment. If the box is not damaged, these problems cannot resolve in any money payback to the buyer.
