Art and Art Reproduction – Some Quick Facts

     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.

The best known artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Leonardo Da Vinci, Picasso, and Michelangelo created aesthetic and scintillating beauty in their masterpieces that reflect their dazzling creative ability and genius. Art reproductions are an effort to replicate the brilliant artwork. This is by no means an encroachment on the artist’s imagination that remains his/her intellectual property; it is only an effort to retain the beauty of the original masterpiece for generations to come and make it accessible to a wider audience.

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

Picasso reproductions are mainly of his nude portraits, love scenes, heterogeneous couples, self-portraits, and cloak and dagger masquerades. The Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso has left a deluge of artwork comprising paintings in big-format, etching, drawing, and even sculpture. He used to take almost the same amount of time on each work. No wonder, he created so profusely. His drawings and the prints reflect precise detail and sharp contours, while his paintings had rapid execution and suspension of form.

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.

You can customize framed art to suit the ambience of your homes. It helps to set the tone and adds a touch of class, elegance and lends 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.
