Art and Art Reproduction – Some Quick Facts

     Art can be defined as the deliberate use of some medium to communicate emotions or ideas between minds. The mediums of art can be as diverse as paintings, music, dance, sculpture. Basically, art requires creativity and imagination to convey the thoughts and ideas of the artist to the minds of others. An artwork is judged on the basis of how effectively it communicates these underlying messages, ideas or thoughts clearly.

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 are handmade oil paintings on canvas. Skilled artists creatively add color and texture to highlight the essence of the subject, as required.

Van Gogh Reproductions

Van Gogh was an exceptional artist. He had an original way of working. He would draw the outlines with charcoal in the evening and complete a painting in a day. He drew what he saw without changing anything, least of all the colors. The artists reproducing his works are using the same working methods, techniques and materials used by Van Gogh. They have the momentous task of reproducing Van Gogh’s very powerful paintings that are in great harmony. These artists have to study the color compositions, materials, textures and every single detail adopted by the great artist. Only then can they create authentic reproductions of his work.

Picasso Reproductions

Pablo Picasso is a Spanish artist who executed a deluge of artwork in his later years. Every single piece of artwork, be it a painting in big-format, etching, drawing, or sculpture, took almost the same duration of time each day. This is one of the reasons of his highly diverse output. His drawings and the prints reflect precise detail and sharp contours, while his paintings had rapid execution and suspension of form. His favorite themes were nude portraits, love scenes, heterogeneous couples, self-portraits, and cloak and dagger masquerades.

Framed Art

Framed Art plays a pivotal role in decorating homes to add a personal touch or to warm up still formal office premises. Art in any form adds a classic touch to the interiors, especially framed art blends with the surroundings. Framed art also helps to define the private space of an individual according to his 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.

Gone are the days when great artworks were accessible to a select few. Now, art reproductions, framed art and many other customized versions have brought art within the reach of the common man. Art lends beauty, elegance and style in every aspect of life.

‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever’… and, now, for everyone, thanks to art reproductions.
