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.
I love art, but I'm not a millionairess. I'm so happy I discovered a merchant who is able to fulfill my need for beautiful works of art adorning my walls at a price that is truly affordable w/o conflicting with quality - this is not a wallboard type of art - I generally purchase the upscale renditions, framed and they have enough texture and beauty to enhance any home.
An incredible addition to my piano room. The colors are true to life and the canvas is good quality. Very satisfied with the quality and workmanship in the frame and hanging hardware as well.
I have ordered 3 paintings now for overstockArt and they are all gorgeous. They arrive very quickly and are carefully packaged. I recommend them wholeheartedly!
I bought 3 pieces so far and love them all. The paintings as well as the framing are very nice. The delivery is great too.
I have always admired van Gogh's work, but prints look pretty cheesy. Now they have brush strokes going along with his, which look very real with their raised texture. I love this art and recommend it to anyone who loves movement and vibrant colors in their art.
Purchasing this reproduction of is about as close to owning the original as one can get. The artist who did my picture was not skimpy on the bright dabs of paint - exactly in the style of the master, Vincent. The colors are magnificent. The structure follows closely the original I have in my art books. I originally bought it for my living room but after a day I moved it to my bedroom so I could start each day with something beautiful.
Beautiful van Gogh wall ceramics. Fast delivery with fragile products safely delivered due to expert packing.
I have been scammed before by other retailers which were trying to sell some horrendous version of the masters, but overstockArt just put ordering online into the next level. Honest and wonderful!
The moment I opened the package I was pleased to find that the colors of the canvas exactly matched the image on the website. No disappointments here. I was also impressed by the care with which the canvas was packed for delivery. It was obvious that every possible effort was taken to insure the safe transit and delivery of the item, which, by the way, arrived within the scheduled time. Based on product quality and shipping, I give them 5 stars!
overstockArt delivered on everything! Fast and very good service and a wide selection of art. Very happy with my art and frame. The symbolism and beauty of the art really spoke to me. Definitely recommend overstockArt.
