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.
Subtle yet very beautiful painting with great attention to detail. A fine reproduction that lightens up the room. The colors are soft and have a soothing effect on the mind. Strongly recommended.
A vibrant colorful hand painted oil on canvas that has changed the mood in the room. The red and orange poppies against the background of a dark sky is mesmerizing and magical. Very good reproduction. Strongly Recommended.
I ordered this in a large size for my living room as I had seen it years ago and always liked the scene and the colors. I didn't know if the painting would be what I remembered but it was better than I expected. The colors are beautiful and the painting so well done. Some thought I had purchased a real Monet, but that isn't in my budget. This one was and I am very happy with my purchase.
Absolutely love this tile! The colours are so vibrant and pop off the tile. Looks great on the wall.
We were so impressed with our first purchase we bought a second painting the next day. Not only was the painting outstanding, the frame was super as well!
I just pulled my new painting out of the box (which arrived incredibly quick) and I am absolutely in love! It is so beautiful, and detailed - so much better than I was expecting. The frame is good quality and it was assembled well - this is definitely a piece I will have the rest of my life. All in all, I am overjoyed with it! I will definitely be a returning customer!
Smooth transaction, excellent price/sale, flawless and quick shipping, and most of all, product just as advertised. By the way, frame is a beautiful match. Would shop again!
No worries here, nothing but good things to say about OverstockArt.com. They were responsive and accommodating [...] Great quality oil paintings at reasonable prices that have brightened my home. I just ordered several more paintings and I have another in mind. Their superior service and product quality will keep me coming back.
Arrived quickly, beautiful painting, beautiful frame, I am so impressed by this website. I will be ordering again shortly and recommending to all my friends! Honestly, did not expect to be so satisfied.
We just received our painting and the quality is far superior to any reproductions we have seen from European suppliers.
