Unsung Heroes: The Artists Of Reproduction Paintings

Author : Theresa Walter

Replica paintings or reproduction paintings are quite popular nowadays, being used in either world-renowned museums whenever a valuable masterpiece needs to be retouched, or inside classy living rooms as a magnificent decor for the art enthusiast with taste. Truly practical and undoubtedly beautiful , they range from Claude Monet's subtle yet surreal 'Water-Lily Pond' to the loud and dynamic style of Edvard Munch's 'The Scream'.

Practically everyone knows these great artists' names, and it is their names, ideas, and lifestyles that people normally talk about, even if they know that what they're looking at right then is a reproduction painting. Most of us fail to mention or even think about the artists of reproduction paintings, and this situation is really quite sad, but it is a reality nonetheless.

Each top-notch, high-quality reproduction painting is made by an unacknowledged painter's own two hands, attempting to recreate the original painting's texture, to replicate the original painter's brush strokes. Professional reproduction painters possess at least a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, to at least show that they are quite proficient in their field.

Student's of the arts are arguably not as money-hungry when it comes to their occupations when compared to students of business schools or even academic universities. Money is much more difficult to come by as an artist, and hard work is definitely not enough when it comes to delivering a fantastic work of art. This means that each student dreams of working to create magnificent works, utilizing their creative juices and inklings of their imagination to achieve and manifest their own work of art and be an artist in their own right.

Everyone wants to be known for their hard work and talent; it is a basic human desire. In this sense, the painters of reproduction or replica paintings truly are alienated from their labor. Sure, they are paid their due, and it's not like we must contemplate on every single thing such as who made our toilets and toothbrushes, but these unnamed artists are on a different level altogether. They have the heart of artists, and their work is something that is meant to be looked upon, meant to be admired, very much unlike your common household appliance or brand new wallpaper.

So to those who work on creating reproduction paintings, this article is dedicated to you. How else would the numerous museum visitors still get to experience a fantastic work of art when the original masterpieces need to be restored? How else would people who aren't millionaires enjoy the experience of having and gazing at an amazing and classic work of art at the comfort of their very own home? Painters of reproduction artists truly are the unsung heroes of the modern world.
