Decorating Your Home With Impressionist Paintings

A little bit of art in every home is a good thing. Art, especially impressionist paintings, can serve as the color and texture of your home, creating a beautiful as well as inviting and interesting place for your guests as well as you and your family. There are some well known impressionists as well as not so well known for you to choose paintings or prints from. In fact, even if you are new to collecting impressionistic paintings you will find that many of the names are familiar to you.

There are a lot of really beautiful works out there and when you start shopping for paintings you may be blown away by all of the great options. You may look at the prices and be shocked by just how much some of these paintings can run, especially the older, more well known pieces. If you really want a great looking painting that will beautify your home as well as impress your friends, you should look at some Van Gogh paintings. There are plenty of them to choose from, each one as interesting as the last.

Van Gogh not your thing? For most art collectors you either really like or dislike Van Gogh and there isn’t much in between. If Van Gogh isn’t your there are still a lot of other artists for you to shop from such as Claude Monet, Camille Pissaro, Alfred Sisley, Frederic Bazille, and of course you will always find some beautiful Picasso paintings.

When you are buying art you need to be careful that you are getting what you paid for. In the art world you always have to be weary of something that seems like a good deal. You need to check for authenticity and certifications every step of the way. There are a lot of really good replicas out there. Of course, if you know you are buying a replica there is nothing wrong with that, but if you are being told that you are buying an authentic you need to check into it and be sure that you are buying what you are paying for.

Where can you find the paintings of impressionists? You may be able to visit museums, but generally they are not in the business of selling their pieces. Instead, you should get in touch with an experienced art dealer that can help you find the specific paintings that you are looking for or who can help you find paintings from artists that you know that you like. Getting a professional to work with you can prove to be very helpful as they can help you locate the paintings of your choice as well as determine their authenticity!
