Wichita, Kansas (PRWEB) December 07, 2015 -- Online art gallery overstockArt.com’s annually announced top 10 oil paintings show some new additions for 2015 alongside familiar faces. Holding strong at #1 once again Vincent van Gogh’s masterpiece, "Café Terrace." Van Gogh is joined by 8 other artists: Renoir, Monet, Klimt, Hopper, Leighton, Thorburn, Redon, and Degas.
Van Gogh had another great year as the only artist taking more than one spot in overstockArt.com's annual list of the top 10 best-selling oil paintings of the year. “Café Terrace” reigns supreme in part due to its upgraded version; part of overstockArt.com’s Luxury Line, which proved popular with its hand-embellished gold and silver metallic accents. It’s joined by another fan favorite, "Starry Night", which has been bumped down to fifth position after a third place finish last year. Renoir’s “Discarded Roses” and Klimt's "Adele Bloch Bauer" have taken second and third, each having seen a tremendous surge in popularity.
The full listing of the top 10 oil paintings sold online in 2015 according to overstockArt.com’s statistics are:
1. Café Terrace at Night by Vincent Van Gogh
2. Discarded Roses by Pierre August Renoir
3. Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer by Gustav Klimt
4. Garden Path at Giverny by Claude Monet
5. Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh
6. Night Hawks by Edward Hopper
7. Flaming June by Frederic Leighton
8. Peacock by Archibald Thorburn
9. Flowers by Odilon Redon
10. Star Dancer (On Stage) by Edgar Degas
“Star Dancer” by Degas has managed to hold on to its tenth place spot, though surpassed by several newcomers to the rankings. Another Luxury Line painting has made the list, with Klimt’s “Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer” replacing his ever-popular “The Kiss” this year. This is most likely due to the 'Woman in Gold' motion picture that was released in April of this year and transcended Klimt's Adele to the top of the charts.
The CEO of overstockArt.com David Sasson is excited about this year's list, he says “There is a lot we can learn from these timeless works of art. There’s a reason people are drawn to them and enjoy them. Perhaps it’s because the artists knew the journey was the destination and enjoyed the process of making art.” Sasson reflects on the reason overstockArt.com was created and adds, “overstockArt.com is more than an online art gallery, it is a gateway that allows people to access the essence of these timeless works of art that is so uplifting and reviving to the human spirit. We believe everyone should be able to enjoy the personal inspiration these artists provide no matter what their budget.”
The Top 10 list is released annually due to popular demand, “Consumers and companies strive to keep up with the latest interior décor trends to maintain a modern appeal,” said Sasson. “Just like they care about Pantone’s annual ‘it’ color, they want to know what décor accessories are hot. Our annual top 10 list makes it easy for consumers to stay on top of the trends and find out which oil paintings are most hip and desirable in the marketplace.”
