The 10 Most Renowned Paintings In The 19th Century

Author : Paul Cleary

If you have a desire to truly come to terms with art and fully appreciate it, one of the things you have to make certain you grasp is the historical context in which the art was made. Fine art depends largely on the times in which it was produced because that is what influences the artists who create the pieces and it influences the subjects of the works, as well, from the people to the places and even the over all ambiance of the art itself. We may all come to appreciate art a excellent deal more, especially pieces from the 19th Century, once we notice what the times and people were like then. There was a huge amount of invention that took place in this time period and numerous global level changes that influenced all societies. It is during this time that the Industrial Revolution took place and also this is when railroads came to rise and the American Civil War happened. This makes it extremely hard for historians to decide which pieces of art are the best so it is generally going to be somewhat subjective when it comes to deciding this no matter who's expert opinion we happen to turn to.

Excellent works of art are those that are finest known because they have managed to cause a response from fantastic numbers of people. One of history's best painters was alive then and that is Van Gogh who gave the world "Starry Night" and "The Postman", a couple of works for which he is known. Monet gave us "Waterlilies" and "Impression, Sunrise" to show off Impressionism while Seurat defined Pointillism with his piece "La Grand Jatte". Europe offers up 2 major stars with iconic works, Manet with "The Luncheon on the Grass" and "The Card Players", by Cezanne. Nevertheless, we should not forget the American luminary Whistler who's "Whistler's Mother" portrait is of his own mother and a definite classic for that nation. We would probably undoubtedly be in remiss if we did not mention "Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?" by Gaugin and Munch's "The Scream", two masterful works of this period.

You might absolutely count on the fact that if you decide you wish amazing works of art, you will need to go the sensible route. Oil painting reproductions are absolutely a fantastic way to go because they are able to offer lasting value that surely does create a gorgeous reproduction when skilled artists do the work. Objects like these are awesome in terms of their luxury, but they do not cost a fortune.
