About Art and Art Reproductions

Aug 26, 2008
It is almost impossible to define art but we can explain art as the deliberate use of some medium to communicate emotions or ideas between minds. The various forms of art such as paintings, music, dance, sculpture or any form are the artists' exclusive ways of communicating through their creativity and imagination. The criterion of a good work of art lies in its ability to communicate the underlying idea, thought or feeling effectively.

Great artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso, and Michelangelo have created immortal works of art that are not only breathtakingly beautiful but enhance a sense of aesthetics in the viewer as well. They are known for their dazzling creative ability and inimitable genius. However, not everyone gets a chance to see their masterpieces. Therefore, the need for art reproductions was felt. Art reproductions are an effort to replicate the brilliant artwork, without taking away the original artist's imagination which remains his/her intellectual property. Art reproductions are an effort to make great artworks accessible to a wider audience and to preserve them for posterity.

Oil Reproductions

Oil Reproductions or oil paintings are handmade paintings on canvas. They are made by skilled artists. They add color and texture to highlight the essence of the subject, as required.

Van Gogh Reproductions

Van Gogh reproductions are created by using similar working methods, techniques and materials used by Van Gogh in his work. Van Gogh's paintings are in great harmony and are very powerful. In ancient times, Vincent drew the outlines using charcoal. Vincent drew what he saw; he did not change the colors by using his imagination. He did not indulge in fantasies. It is believed that he made a painting in a day and often a drawing in the evening. His reproductions are reconstructed after a thorough analysis of the color compositions, materials, textures and every single detail adopted by the great artist.

Picasso Reproductions

The Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso has left an abundance of artwork which is being reproduced. He is said to have created each piece in the same time. He was a versatile artist and his work spreads over a vast range of art forms from a painting in big format to etching, drawing, and sculpture. His drawings and the prints are known for precise detail and sharp contours, while his paintings reflect rapid execution and suspension of form. Among his most popular paintings are his nude portraits, self portraits, love scenes, heterogeneous couples, and cloak and dagger masquerades.

Framed Art

Although art in any form adds a classic touch to your home, framed art plays a pivotal role in adding a personal touch in decorating homes. It blends with the surroundings and enhances the beauty of the home and office. People use framed art to define their private space according to their preferences and taste.

Framed art can be customized to suit the ambience, atmosphere, and sets the tone of your homes. Framed art adds a touch of class, elegance and lend aesthetic value to the surroundings.

The greatest advantage of art reproductions is that art is no longer the sole prerogative of the rich and powerful. Now, art can be enjoyed by the common man as well even though in reproductions. The various forms of art like reproductions, framed art and many other customized versions have brought beauty, elegance and style in every aspect of life.

Access to artistic excellence has helped to develop sharp aesthetic sense among the masses.
