Reproductions of Famous Paintings, especially Oil

Many people around the country want the beauty of original, classic art works in their homes, and oil painting reproductions is about as close as one can get, without spending hundreds of thousands of dollars for the original. Art is a necessary part of our society, even though it is often overlooked and forgotten. Art helps us express our creativity and emotions and adds color, movement, and beautiful design into a world dominated by schedules and frenzied activities. Art can help calm a room and soothe a stress-frazzled mind because it can transport the viewer to another place and another world.

The Effect of Oil Painting Reproductions

Some of the most popular art works, and therefore oil painting reproductions, are the classics from the timeless artists of the 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. These early artists really changed the face of art as they created countless styles and innovations to revolutionize art. Each successive artist seemed to build on the work, style, and vision of a predecessor to create something wholly new, yet somehow familiar. It makes sense that people would want to bring this kind of atmosphere and energy into their homes, but it is often not financially possible to purchase original pieces. Although prints are available for very low cost, oil painting reproductions come much closer to achieving the same overall artistic effect as the original works.

Part of the beauty of original works is the look of the paint on the canvas. Although prints can exhibit the same energy, color, and overall visual design, there is a certain movement and artistic beauty that is left out when the work is reduced to a completely flat surface on paper. Oil painting reproductions look more like original works because they have the traditional painting surface--like canvas--and because the paints color and blend better. Some of the most common artists whose works are used for oil painting reproductions are Monet, Degas, Manet, Munch, Vermeer, Fabian Perez, Cezanne, Gauguin, Renoir, Botticelli and Van Gogh, although it is possible to get reproductions of nearly any work.

Companies that specialize in oil painting reproductions often have trained and experienced painters on staff who work to create reproductions of specific works on demand. Because these artists are skilled not only in art but in the techniques of reproduction, it is nearly impossible to distinguish between original works and the reproductions. Their oil painting reproductions will bring a certain flair and look to any room that will highlight the beauty of the art and create a powerful ambience.
