Luxury Line – Art with Added Glamour

At overstockArt we are proud to provide the highest quality art that is as close to the original as possible. We also want to offer our customers unique pieces that take their favorite artists to a new level. Our Luxury Line of paintings is distinct in the way that it adds gold or silver foils to the masterpieces you know and love. The delicate way it is applied to the edges of the art enhances it without becoming a distraction. This creates art that will impress your friends in family beyond expectations.

The Luxury Line is a collection of fine hand painted pieces of art that includes a touch of metallic foil to accent the artist’s skill. It is carefully applied over the original paint, in specifically targeted areas to create additional depth and texture where it looks best. Our artists are careful not to let the shimmer of the foil overwhelm the beauty of the subject, but accentuate its finer details. Both silver and gold foils are used, depending on the tones and colors used in the piece. When combined with a coordinating frame, the metallic hues add elegance to any room.

One of the most famous painters to use gold foil in his works of art is Gustav Klimt. In pieces like The Kiss and Portrait of Adele Bloch Baur I, he uses the shimmering foils to enhance the style of his paintings. We have replicated that with our finely detailed reproductions. Then we decided that there were other artists that could also benefit from a little extra dazzle in some of their work.  Being careful not to detract from what the original artist was trying to convey we have added this subtle extra adornment to produce something unique. Here are some of the artists we have included in our Luxury Line gallery: Gustav Klimt, Vincent van Gogh, Edgar Degas, Archibald Thorburn, Claude Monet, and Odilon Redon.

Enjoy a stylish and sophisticated twist on some of the world’s greatest art masterpieces when you browse through our Luxury Line oil paintings at overstockArt. These stunning pieces have all been embellished with accents of gold, silver or bronze to make every scene all the more eye-catching. This subtle shine adds an elegant flourish to the paintings without taking away from the artist’s original design. With pieces by a variety of artist’s in this collection, you’re sure to find something that’s perfect for your home when you browse through our Luxury Line paintings at overstockArt.
