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 recently discovered this company and have already purchased several pieces with the intent of buying more in the near future. Having been a manager of a fine art gallery, I know exceptional artwork when I see it and overstockArt has beautiful offerings.
I've purchased quite a few reproductions and always had great pieces arrive. This last purchase however there was ever so slight damage to the top of the frame. I called and it was picked up by FedEx the next day. Very kind, professional, and easy process. Thank you, I'll continue to order my art through you folks!
We ordered the Luxury Line version of Van Gogh's Cafe Terrace and we love it! It's well done, retaining the details of the original but with a little added flair from the gold paint on the stars and windows. If I didn't know better, I would swear this painting adds light to our room at night. I'm very happy with this purchase!
I love overstockArt. I have purchased 5 paintings from them over the years and love them all. Beautiful work, great prices, and quality customer service.
The paintings I received were exceptional in quality and the service staff were more than helpful with helping me arrange my orders. Will buy more in the future!
I ordered this painting to hang above the bed in the bedroom. It is more gorgeous than on the screen. The gold and the colors are so vibrant, the passion of this painting is amazing. Absolutely love my purchase. Arrived quickly and nicely packed with no damage. Very happy with my purchase!
The quality of the piece we ordered was nothing short of perfect, it is perfect quality and will be the center of our dining room for years to come!
Gorgeous painting. Lots of texture. Gold foil on the luxury line adds a great effect. Highly recommended.
This is outstanding. Not only does it have the gorgeous gold foiled accents, but the texture and amount of paint on the canvas is absolutely superb. Brush strokes look amazing, colors are vivid. This is a real treat in my kitchen area. Falling in love with each order I make, but this one has really caught my attention.
This looks gorgeous in our home. Goes well in every room we tested it in.
