It's now trendy to invest in art reproductions. Some of the people we've painted for include art enthusiasts who have a particular favorite artist or piece, homeowners looking to decorate their homes, husbands and wives exchanging holiday gifts, retired men seeking quiet surroundings, a family with a personal connection to a famous artist, religious institutions, businesses, and more.
What is the history of making copies of fine art?
The history of fine art replica oil paintings may be traced back to the 16th century, when it became standard practice for art students to perfect their craft by recreating the works of their instructors and mentors from the past. The process of duplicating the result of a great artist would provide the learner with invaluable experience in a particular technique before they begin experimenting with their unique approach to painting. Degas and Picasso are only two of the many well-known painters that used this technique.
Leonardo da Vinci is the most well-known artist in history to study art via the process of replication. Yes, he did serve as an apprentice to the renowned artist Andrea Del Verrocchio. Before developing his style, Leonardo would have absorbed his teacher's teachings and painted in that person's manner.
Acceptable art copies, which were very popular in the 1800s, particularly among Victorians, are now considered rare and valuable antiques. The two main motivations for creating fine art replicas are: First, the delicate art duplicate was painted at the patron's request; second, fine art reproductions were produced to experiment with different takes on the original.
I wish you all the best skills and craftmanship to reproduce my all-time favorite painting. The Starry Night brings out various emotions, both pity and sorry for the depressed artist's life and the pure joy and energy the image exudes and radiates. I hope you can express that as close as possible in the reproduction.
I want to note the following. Vincent applied the paint directly from the tube to the canvas. Hence thick strokes of oil painting are the result of bringing depth, color, and energy. Please, if possible, try to reach the same result. Further, I note the sun in the original has a yellow hue around a yellow, orange sun and stars. In some reproductions, the orange center in the sun and stars is forgotten. Please see this as a gentle reminder from my side.
I wish you all the best and joy in this reproduction that will hang proudly in my living room in The Netherlands. Many thanks in advance, and thank you for all your efforts!
Do replicas of works of art have any value?
Reproductions of works of art often cost far less than the original works of art from which they were derived. Reproductions of masterworks of art are not as valuable as original works. However, there is also no assurance that the value of an original work of art will increase over time. As with every rule, there are always outliers. In this sense, a replica of one of Monet's Waterlilies by the famous artist David Hockney would be rather valuable. However, as a general rule, the market sets a replica's value. PaintingZ customers purchase oil painting reproductions for two main reasons: to decorate their homes and to offer them as gifts.
A Human Thing & Great Gift
Posters and prints are not the same as authentic artists' reproductions of paintings. Finishing a copy painting may take many days or weeks. It is achieved by applying brushwork to a blank canvas. When a completed painting is displayed on the wall, it represents the completion of an artist's effort. In contrast to a poster or print, which lacks the impression of being "specially built for someone," it is a process in which there is the knowledge that it is being produced purposefully for someone.
In contrast to a mobile phone or another electrical gadget, an artwork has no use and serves no purpose. The fundamental consideration while assembling a mobile phone is the device's functioning. The artist must alternate between being entirely immersed in applying each brushstroke and thinking of the completed piece of art as a human being who may one day be the customer or the receiver of a gift when producing a painting.
These actions are examples of human interaction regarding buying, making, or receiving handcrafted artwork.
High Quality & Museum Quality
It is common practice to refer to high-grade or top-quality products as "museum quality." The term "museum quality" is more often used for commercial purposes than to describe actual attributes. The initial vendors decided to label their wares as replicas of museum quality, which led buyers to start searching for museum quality. More vendors after that adopted the practice.
Standards of High Quality
A high-quality copy painting in PaintingZ requires the appropriate colors, details, and style.
Authentic, interesting, and understated coloration is what makes a good painting. Examine the painter's use of color by bringing the picture up close to your face. It's possible that the color isn't as deep of a black or blue up close as it seems from afar.
An excellent piece of art is the result of careful attention to detail. If there aren't enough interesting details in a painting, it will seem lifeless and uninteresting. You can't really know by just looking at a painting, but you can get a sense of it.
I admire the intricate details of this oil painting. I'm not an artist by any means or even that well versed in pictures, so I will trust the artist. What I'm hoping for is a detailed recreation that tries to as closely replicate the original as possible.
The art movement a picture belongs to is important to us. All efforts will be made by our artists to maintain the integrity of the original work's aesthetic.
The artist's temperament may be read from work. A lack of professionalism usually manifests in dull colors, sloppy brushwork, and overlooked details. The picture would suddenly appear as if the artist had little time to complete it. A skilled artist, on the other hand, never rushes their creations. The artist, however, is enjoying the creative process so much that she has no desire to complete the work. After seeing the final result, our clients are often so pleased that they want the replica artist's signature instead of the original artist's.
Can I get reasonably priced, high-quality artwork anywhere? How would you describe the ideal oil painting reproduction service? Where can I get authentic copies of famous paintings?
Sure. Why not? PaintingZ makes it feasible.
Oil paintings are a peculiar business. High pricing might indicate more robust marketing rather than fine artwork. Probably because artworks are nonstandard commodities, it is challenging to draw quality comparisons, and quality is mainly determined by the artist rather than the corporation. Finishing a picture is an artist's effort, regardless of how powerful a firm is.
An ideal firm offering replica paintings selects the most significant artists to work with, has a pool of skilled painters adept in numerous themes, styles, and materials, and can satisfy specific requests.
Consider the high-quality requirements listed above for your creative creation. Instead of relying on marketing information, trust your eyes.
Where can I get Van Gogh, Monet, Klimt, or any other master's reproduction?
PaintingZ is the place, thanks to the pool of our artists. Our artists are proficient in reproducing Van Gogh, Monet, Klimt, Renoir, Da Vinci, Rembrandt, and many other well-known artists. Given any artwork, our artists know what techniques to use to achieve the visual effects of a particular painting.
What exactly is hand-painted replica art, or handmade painting reproduction?
Painting reproductions are authentic paintings recreated by an artist other than the original artist. Oil painting reproductions are the most common form, though other mediums like watercolor, ink, and charcoal can also be made. A good quality oil reproduction takes the efforts of a professional artist, both painting skills and research of the original artist, and is regarded as an artwork in itself. Painting reproductions are unoriginal, unlike original artworks often purchased by collectors or museums.
Traditionally, painting reproductions were practiced by students to learn from their masters since the 16th century.
Painting reproductions are not exactly like the original. While each painting is unique, modifications can often be made upon request.
Artists do all our reproductions in their studios.
A Museum Quality Hand-Painted Replica VS A Poster or A Print
A poster is less expensive than a hand-painted artwork replica. In contrast to the conventional prints and posters produced by printers, a high-quality replica is painted with superior oil paints on premium canvas and may last for decades, if not centuries, with proper care and presentation. When you own a work of art and hang it on your wall, you may look at the brush strokes and other details the artist included to make the artwork special for a long time. If you can't afford to buy the original of anything, a replica is the next best option.
