How do I shop using the online shop?

To buy in our e-Shop you have to register; this will streamline your future purchases; It's very easy; simply provide your contact details, select a name and a password.

The delivery and billing addresses must be the same and must be in the same country as the version of the site you are using to be able to make the purchase correctly.

When you start shopping, check that the website has correctly detected the country from which you are accessing the site, otherwise when you enter the delivery address different rates may be applied if this does not coincide with the country selected initially.

What is the delivery period?

What is the delivery period? Delivery takes between 3 and 14 working days depending on the destination country. The Art Company reserves the right to take more than 14 days to effect delivery in the event of causes beyond the control of the Company (transport strikes, war, embargos, labour problems, natural disasters such as fire, accidents etc.), delays or other reasons on account of the carrier or other causes beyond the power of The Art Company.

In certain countries outside of the European Union, (South America, Russia, Israel, Africa, Kazakhstan, etc.) the average delivery time is approximately one month.

Working days are those designated on the schedule established at company headquarters in Spain.
