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.
"Rapture of Psyche" was well-done; it came framed and ready to hang for a very reasonable price!
Had two important questions arrive after I placed the order. Both questions were answered within 15 minutes of sending the email. I believe the Customer Service department is top notch, as is the site with Pictures, Dimensions, and options...
I recently made a purchase and forgot to submit the coupon. I called and was amazed to have the phone answered after the second ring--- by a human!! A very pleasant and extremely helpful human! He was great!!! And made my shopping experience with overstockArt a very pleasing experience!
I've purchased two pieces for my office so far and am about to receive my third. Both pieces were of good quality. They are light weight, well framed, and appealing on the wall. I look forward to doing business with OverstockArt in the future.
Stunning Art for a great price! Arrived fast, well wrapped and amazing customer service. I am so impressed by this that I might have to look for my other favorite paintings ;)
I ordered two framed pieces and they arrived quickly and were more beautiful than I imagined they would be. There were of high quality too. Frames are terrific!! I will be a return customer!!
Gustav Klimt painted this portrait in 1907 using gold leaf in his oil paint. When OverStockArt advertised that its “Luxury Line” gold and silver enhancements would be added to the reproduction I felt that the shimmery finish of this masterpiece might be accurately reproduced. I was right. My reproduction of Adele Bloch-Bauer is exquisite. It lights up the room and catches the light beautifully. I am so thrilled that I have already ordered Klimt’s “The Kiss”!
Love the Monet oil painting. I was looking for authentic art (not prints) and this actual oil on canvas was right for the room. Packaged for shipping was great. I got it with a frame and was ready to hang. All I needed was a hammer. Price was right. Will enjoy this for years.
What a beautiful painting! It is the focal point of the room and all who see it comment on it. Wonderful!
I have bought two Renoir's and they did not disappoint in the least. They are absolute pieces of work and the frames are lovely. When you call someone actually answers the phone and is helpful.
