overstockArt's portrait collection includes famous symbolist paintings by Gustav Klimt, full of erotic depictions of the female body and whimsical stars, shapes and flowers. Klimt's paintings are perfect representations of the ways in which artists capture a person's essence without creating a replica of his or her physical appearance. In a more realistic manner, Johannes Vermeer's famous Girl with a Pearl Earring
shows a beautiful young girl wearing a large pearl earring, and the painting is done in dark, deep shades of black, gold and blue for a striking effect. Vermeer's painting, similar to the Mona Lisa
, manage to capture a feeling in the subject's eye that is the main goal of portrait painting, to capture the humanness of the person depicted.overstockArt's collection of oil painting portraits will add sophistication to your home or private art collection. With a sense of mystery behind the details of each subject, these reproductions are done in a number of different styles and unique color schemes. While Klimt's girls are painted using bright, unrealistic colors, painters like Edouard Manet use deep, vibrant colors to show liveliness, and Munch even uses dark, moody colors to paint his subjects.
