Do you like pastels? Do you love sun and cheerfulness? Do you enjoy bright themes, like friendly portraits, beautiful landscapes, images of streets full of movement, energetic sceneries?

But those are not the only types of impressionist canvas prints we have in our collection. You’ll find other reproductions and modern variations, as well. How to use impressionist prints in your apartment’s and office’s decor to avoid an anachronistic and pretentious effect? Here’s a couple of tips, just for you!
Impressionism, as the name suggests, is a wave of art that focuses on immortalizing subtle feelings and sensations, that have inspired a painter on the spur of a moment. Usually they are fleeting moments created by a specific game of light, that’s why paintings by French impressionist painters, and their successors, are full of light characteristic to certain times of day, and sometimes night. Although it may be hard to believe, seeing how simple and delicate impressionist paintings are to a contemporary observer, they were so revolutionary by the time they’ve appeared publicly for the first time, that they’ve raised quite a scandal. Two centuries ago, French people found it hard to believe that a painter may create scenes so deprived of sublimity, as it would happen in case of the Impressionists, but would also, horror of horrors, leave their workshops, take their easels and paints, and go outside to paint from nature! These days, it’s difficult to imagine someone being offended by impressionist canvas prints. Thus, paintings of this type are perfect for decorating your apartment!
The impressionist wave began in the mid-19th century and managed to change the course of art history forever. What’s interesting, is that it kept it’s charm through all those years, and works by such masters as Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir and Van Gogh, available on impressionist canvas prints (in form of reproductions, since the originals are reaching record prices on international auctions), are still perceived as interesting decorations for various interiors - both home and office ones. Impressionist canvas prints with an image of a rising sun is one of the most popular motifs among impressionist artists (the most known example is “Impression, Sunrise” by Claude Monet, that gave it’s name to the entire wave and is currently one of the most expensive paintings in the world), which will look great in an office, in a private bedroom, or even on a restaurant’s wall (especially one with French cuisine!).
If you’re looking for a classically beautiful and tasteful decoration for your living room, bedroom or any other interior, impressionist canvas prints, especially the ones with landscapes, will be a perfect choice! Their colors and cheerful mood will combine nicely with interiors kept in bright, neutral colors, that are decorated with natural materials. A large reproduction of Monet’s painting hanged in the main point of your interior, for example over a living room’s sofa or a bedroom’s bed, will make your space look very, very stylish!
The most known paintings of Impressionist movement - whether it’s the abovementioned Impression by Monet, Degas’s collection of paintings of ballet dancers, or a bit unsettling landscapes created by Van Gogh - have a peculiar softness and lightness about them, that was achieved thanks to a technique that is based on applying the color with small smudges and light strokes of a paintbrush. This, together with the typical for impressionists pastel color scheme, makes impressionist art prints create a wonderful, eye-catching contrast in every interior decorated in modern style: impressionist canvas prints are especially a great choice for decorating minimalist interiors!
