Does Art Reproduction have a value?

Breughel - Flemish Proverbs

I get a lot of emails delivered into my inbox from people asking about art reproductions. What they are, the process, copyright questions etc, so I thought I’d do a series of posts on the most frequently asked questions I receive regarding art reproduction.  Funnily enough, a lot of emails have to do with valuations on art reproductions and if art reproduction has a value. This is an interesting question. Artists have been painting fine art reproductions of paintings for centuries. For example, Pieter Brueghel’s oldest son (Pieter Brueghel the Younger 1564 -1636) painted art reproductions of his father’s work. His art reproduction of his father’s painting ‘Flemish Proverbs’ just sold recently at Christie’s London for £1,721,250. If you’re talking in monetary terms if art reproduction has a value, then I think it does. I’ve had quite a lot of auction houses phone me up asking me to commission replicas of artists that they know are in vogue and are selling well as they know we’d all benefit from it. However, I think art reproduction has a higher value in making people happy. The testimonials we keep on receiving and from my own experience of walking into my house and seeing my favourite pieces of art gracing my walls makes me extremely happy and proud of my home. Try putting a value on that!

What are reproduction oil paintings?

Reproduction Oil Paintings

In today’s market, there are many types of wall décor available for you to furnish your walls. Ranging from photographs and mirrors to prints and posters of scenes that you admire and love. Now, just think, instead of buying a poster or giclee print from a shop on the high street or art gallery gift shop, it is becoming increasingly more popular to commission reproduction oil paintings of scenes and landscapes of famous paintings that you adore. Admirer of Turner or Monet’s water lilies, perhaps van Gogh’s Almond Blossom is what you find really special?! Well forget buying the prints, if you’re looking for something really special, order oil painting reproductions of your favourite paintings.

Reproduction oil paintings, otherwise known as art replicas, fine art reproduction, art copies, are just that – they are copies of usually famous paintings that are hand-painted by a professional artist. A lot of art reproduction companies make the claim that their reproduction oil paintings are “museum quality”, without substantiating the claim. Fabulous Masterpieces does, but for the reason that our reproduction oil paintings are actually museums, if you’re interested to learn more, please take a look at our website to read more about museum quality oil painting reproductions.
