Preserving the style of painting popular during the Netherlands'; Golden Age, the Dutch Touch Art Company's newest collection of oil paintings celebrates the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's discovery of Manhattan.
Other reproductions and originals include both new and traditional subjects, like the full-size portrait "Marchese Balbi" and still-lifes such as "Cream Mushroom" (above left) and "Pear with Insect" (above right). Dutch Touch's stable of artists utilize archival paint and hundreds of layers of brush strokes per canvas to recreate the texture, detail and lighting found in the originals.
