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.
Quality customer service is key to customer satisfaction. Overstock.art is a shining example of this. They resolved my issue beyond what I expected and I am a very happy customer. My painting is beyond beautiful, too! I'll order from them again!
We received two of the three pieces and are truly impressed. The frames are beautiful and well-made. We had an issue with a coupon and overstockArt.com was accommodating and resolved the matter immediately. We look forward to receiving our third piece and will definitely use this website in the future!
LOVE overstockArt! They have TONS of choices in artwork and frames, they are fast, they are beautiful! I only wish I'd discovered them SOONER! You will not be disappointed!
Art was delivered faster than expected. The paintings and frames were just as described on the website. They were packaged well for shipping. Awesome Job! Very nice quality.
The artwork by Modigliani, Manet and Munch looked fantastic. Very happy customer. Thank you so much.
I have bought several works that were reproduced by overstockArt and was happy with all of them. The Klimts were amazing in detail and texture. They all came with the proper hanging screws, as I got them all pre-framed. For quality at a reasonable price overstockArt is the way to go!
I don't normally buy prints but took a chance on this and I absolutely LOVE it! It's hanging in an area filled with oil paintings and it still stands out as a star!
Highly recommend this if you are looking for something fun and cheerful to brighten up a space. I just love it!
I have purchased 3 handmade oil paintings from overstockArt and have had extremely positive results with each transaction. The products are breathtakingly gorgeous and they are packaged with a high attention to detail so as to not be ruined during and upon transit.
