"The more abstract is form, the more clear and direct its appeal."
"I believe in Michelangelo, Velasquez, and Rembrandt; in the might of design, the mystery of colour, the redemption of all things by Beauty everlasting; and the message of Art that has made these hands blessed."
George Bernard Shaw
All of the paintings offered by Galerie Verdun are original one-of-a-kind works, executed with the highest standards and quality artist-grade materials. Unfortunately, not all art dealers are honest. Many collectors have been duped into buying "genuine original" paintings which are actually sub-standard works mass-produced in foreign warehouses. In contrast, the artists featured on this site are independent, self-representing artists, respected in their field.
Safe and prompt shipping of your artwork is a high priority. Special cartons designed for shipping paintings are used, which are puncture resistant and very sturdy. Framed art prints are also shipped with special care to ensure your artwork arrives safely. Shipping carrier will differ depending on the destination and the size and weight of the artwork. Currently, the carriers used are UPS and USPS. See our Shipping page for more detailed information.
Galerie Verdun maintains a very generous refund policy. If you are not satisfied with the artwork you have purchased, it may be returned within 30 days for a full refund of the purchase price.
We don't offer any artwork other than what is painted by the three Verdun brothers. Some of them may soon be working in other genres, like landscapes or still-life. In the meantime check out the excellent links to other landscape artists and also for fine art photography.
We have published a few prints in the past and plan to offer framed art prints again in the near future. Also, you can browse the Posters, Prints and Framed Art page for other sites offering fine art prints and posters.
Ethically we can not make any claims regarding the investment value of the art we offer. However we do take measures to allow each piece of art to retain what value it has and what it can attain in the future by providing signatures on all originals and limited edition art prints. We also offer certificates of authenticity on request.
Although you can be assured each piece of artwork offered here is of the highest quality and created by talented and respected artists, a qualified art appraiser can better answer your questions regarding art investment.
Yes, commission requests are very much welcomed. You can contact any of our artists directly and discuss commissioned works with them. Each artist will have their own terms for commission agreements.
