Import Duties / Local Taxes
Please note that local charges (sales tax, customs duty) may occur, depending on your region and local customs duties. These charges are at the customers own expense.
Please keep in mind that the colors of artworks might differ from those onscreen. We try to capture the colors precisely but any monitor is calibrated differently. The way the artwork leaves the studio is the way Frank Verbrugge intended it to be.
Frank Verbrugge sometimes works on vintage paper. The bleaching and yellowing of the paper that might occur is part of the artistic process. Obviously all media used such as inks, watercolors, acrylics etc. are lightfast. Original artworks are unique pieces of art and always signed and dated, sometimes titled on the verso.
Fine Art Prints
All offered Fine Art Prints are archival quality giclée print on high quality acid free paper. All prints are signed, numbered and dated on the front.

On receipt of a commission we will provide you with a specification, an approximate timeschedule for delivery and a price for the artwork + delivery.
On completion of your custom artwork, you will be sent pictures via email. To a certain degree, adjustments can be made based on the client’s wishes. In order to pay for the artwork, we set up a custom item in our webshop or send you a quote. On receipt of your final payment we will make arrangements for the delivery of your artwork. Please note that the custom artworks must be paid in € (EUR) therefore the price for a commission may change due to fluctuations in exchange rates if you are completing the transaction in another currency.
