Appreciating Art Through Oil Paintings Reproductions

Author : Theresa Walter

There is no denying the appeal of owning your own original piece of art. However there are some very real challenges if you actually want to acquire one. The more famous the painter or painting, the more expensive the painting. Iconic painters such as those by Rembrandt or Van Gogh have produced paintings that have sold for millions of dollars in today's market, while even current generation artists who have achieved a certain level of fame can sell paintings worth thousands. Oil painting reproductions are arguably the best alternative, and while not originals, can still be painted with a professional level of skill that one can still appreciate. A print reproduction is another avenue for art enthusiasts who don't have pockets quite so deep. These are different since they are not done by the hand of a different artist, but photographed instead.

There are pros and cons to each option. Oil painting reproductions are done by professional painters of varying skill. There will of course be some subtle differences that reflect the style and skill of the painter, however this is all part of its charm. Because of these differences, one might even consider them to be originals in their own right, or at the very least, interpretations using their own style. Contrary to common thinking, paintings are not entirely two dimensional, as the textured surface that oil paintings have provide a third dimension for the senses to enjoy. You can either purchase a ready-made reproduction, although it is usually more common to commission an artist to reproduce a piece of your choosing. They are usually more expensive than prints and if you have them commissioned, can also take some time, but you'll usually be rewarded with a quality reproduction for the money you spent.

Prints are the other alternative for getting art into your home. They are cheaper since photographs can be mass-produced, consequently making them more accessible to the average consumer. If there are any variations between the print and the original, it is usually dependent on the quality of the photograph taken. A replica of a work by Van Gogh or Rembrandt can easily be taken home from the department store to appreciate. However unlike having a painting reproduction, there is a certain aura that is lost. Mass-produced photographs often omit the texture that is appreciated by a fine eye and limiting them as a mass-market reproduction. However framing the right print can still help you achieve the perfect effect if you are trying to decorate on a budget.
