Wichita, Kansas (PRWEB) September 28, 2015
overstockArt.com, the popular online and mobile gallery of hand painted wall art, published its annual Top 10 list of most desired oil paintings for the fall season today. The list consists of the most sought after (and for the first time culturally relevant) artworks for the upcoming season.
Based on detailed analysis from inbound traffic to the popular site and from its social media channels, these paintings represent consumers’ favorite picks in addition to new and trending items including overstockArt.com’s exclusive Luxury Line and Autumn galleries.
All of these hand-painted reproductions have earned their spot on this countdown not just because of their popularity, but also due to their timelessness, uniqueness, and relevance. Some made it to this list because they represent what is hip and trending in the art world right now.
1. The Mulberry Tree, 1889– Vincent Van Gogh
In early October 1889, Van Gogh was living in an asylum and painted this tree on its grounds. When describing this mulberry tree and the time he painted it he seemed happy. In fact he wrote to his brother Theo that he considered the Mulberry Tree his favorite painted work that season.
2. Autumn at Argenteiul, 1873 – Claude Monet
The bank of trees on the left of this masterpiece are rendered with warm gold autumn leaves, reflecting upon the still Seine. This classic is one of the first works where Monet fully embraced the entire rainbow palette that was to become a hallmark of Impressionist painting and of his legacy.
3. Cape Cod in October, 1946 – Edward Hopper
Famous for showing people lost in urban isolation, Hopper captures that same feeling but in a country-side setting. His characteristic still and tense mood is present.
4. Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer I, 1907 – Gustav Klimt
Taking three years to complete, this work of art has been referred to as the final and most fully representative work of Klimt’s “golden phase”. This painting plays a starring role in a movie released this year; Woman in Gold starring Helen Mirren.
5. Autumn (Umbrellas), 2012 – Justyna Kopania
Rich in both color and texture, this work by popular contemporary ArtistBe artist Justyna Kopania is a best seller each year. It captures a gem-like Autumn scene.
6. Statue in the Park of Versailles – Giovanni Boldini
This painting showcases a contrast between the cool colored statue and the warm autumn foliage that surrounds it. It is characteristic of a unique technique that earned the artist the title of “Master of Swish” because of his flowing style.
7. Le Jardin de la Poste, Cagnes, 1906 – Pierre-Auguste Renoir
It is no surprise that the master landscape artist would have a place on this list of popular pieces. The only surprise is that we somehow managed to select only one to include!
8. Autumn, 2013 – Pol Ledent
Another popular contemporary ArtistBe artist, Pol Ledent’s Autumn is one his many beautiful Fall themed pieces. A prolific artist Ledent is self-taught.
9. Water Lilies, 1919 – Claude Monet
We couldn’t resist adding this beauty to the list. This work of art is part of our exclusive “Luxury Line.” It is made of the same hand-painted oils as the original, but with an addition of beautifully hand embellished gold and silver accents.
10. Gramercy Park, 1920 – George Wesley Bellows
This painting presents a brief moment in the life of upper middle class residents enjoying a Fall afternoon in a New York City park. Featuring his two daughters, the park was just around the corner from the artist’s home and a favorite spot.
