Before the invention of photography, portrait painters spent countless hours capturing the essence of a person on canvas and studying the intricate details of his or her face. Some of the most famous works of art in history are portraits, from archetypal artists such as Klimt, Manet and perhaps the most famous of all, Da Vinci's Mona Lisa with her mysterious smile. overstockArt carries a large collection of gorgeous reproductions of these classic oil painting portraits, all on quality canvas.

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. overstockArt’s reproductions of famous oil painting portraits are hand-painted on artist-grade canvas to recreate every detail of the original works. These paintings are all available in different sizes and framing options, and at prices that can accommodate any art collector’s budget.
Awesome site that allows you to choose your rooms paint color and then displays the painting on that wall. Brings the painting you choose into perspective. I love this feature!
So happy with my purchase! It looks great, came very quickly and without any issue. Very happy with my first purchase from Overstock Art!
I ordered The Kiss for my wife and she absolutely loves it. The Luxury Line version on this painting has the additional textures and depth which really bring this painting to life. The website recommended frames that would match the painting and their choice was spot on. Very happy with my purchase!
Dance at Bougival is one of my favorite Renoir paintings. I had a cheap print but this one on canvas gives me so much joy. I just love it!
