What is an Art Exhibition Poster?
We see more Art Exhibition Posters nowadays because not all people can pay thousands, thousands of hundreds or even millions of euros when buying a painting. Therefore, Art Exhibition Posters have come to offer us a more accessible form to collect art.
If you think -for example- on the Starry Night by Van Gogh, a painting with an invaluable price that is still estimated at more than 100 million euros, even if you had the money to buy it, you probably would think twice or more times before making the purchase.
In the same direction, there are other types of paintings and designs with such a high value that most of us would not be able to buy them only because of their price. Original pieces by Matisse, Rousseau, Af Klint or the same Van Gogh are rare and difficult to find. That is why an Art Exhibition Poster is an alternative for people to replicate the artist's work presented in a specific gallery or exhibition.
But what would be the difference between an original and an exhibition piece? On the one hand, and as we have mentioned, the first one typically has a specific price and then only increases in time. On the other hand, an art exhibition poster has no extra value in time because they are indeed reproductions of the artist's work. They neither were initially created by them nor have a signature by the artist.
Thus, when we possess an art exhibition poster, we have a reproduction of the original painting or design that was part of an exhibition at a particular date.
Consequently, in that aspect, and given the current situation we face globally, most museums are closed. The chances to visit an art exhibition -depending on your country- are predominantly null. That is why having one of these pieces can be an excellent option to have part of the original design work presented in a museum.
In the same line, we have a collection full of art exhibition posters to offer, and there are more to come. We are preparing an art exhibition museum online for you to choose any of the prints you feel to match the best with your home decor.
Rousseau's style was widely criticised for not being closer to reality and what other artists were trying to reach at the time. He was a painter with no academic training in arts but more of a self-taught painter.
Considering what we mentioned, people did not see his work as relevant for the absence of technique and lack of realism that other painters were achieving in the 19th century.
Rousseau continued working on his paintings. He ended up evolving his own particular and distinctive style of painting, which was also a source of inspiration for artists like Picasso, Kandinsky, and others.
Henri Rousseau's Jungles in Paris Exhibition in the Musée d'Orsay is one example of exhibition posters we have for you. This exhibit took place between March and June of 2006, and it had more than 135.000 visitors. Here you have some designs that were part of that collection of paintings.
Vincent Van Gogh
Van Gogh's story is not the happiest, but it is something that people inevitably think about when they read or learn about him. His passion for art was palpable, and he did more than 2000 pieces of work during his short life before dying at the age of thirty-seven.
To improve his painting skills, he inspired himself in other people's faces. By doing this, he started to perfect his skills as a painter. Many of his most acclaimed works are precisely portraits, and they are worth dozens of millions of euros.
Van Gogh's best works came from his more stable years with his mental and physical health. The time where he was on his feet and gave us many of the most exciting and significant paintings, such as the Wheat Field with Cypresses.
A couple of paintings are part of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The images are part of various collections the museum offers, and you can see them here.
Hilma Af Klint
With a unique style and way ahead of other contemporary painters, Af Klint made what others tried to reach decades before. She did not feel comfortable with her current works, mainly because of the acid criticism by Rudolph Steiner. Hence, Af Klint quit painting for some time before deciding to continue her journey of the "Paintings for Temple" collection.
Owner of unique talent and use of colours, Af Klint at the moment was finishing one painting every five days. She felt utterly inspired once again and did not stop until she finished it.
People consider Hilma's work abstract art. And that is not hard to imagine taking into account that her source of inspiration came from her spiritual sessions where she connected to outer spirits that they painted through her according to what she said.
All these prints are from the painting for the Future exhibition at the Guggenheim in New York. This exhibit took place between October 2018 and April 2019. If you want to know more about it, you can follow this link to the exhibition itself.
Finally, we have this collection inspired by the exhibition of Papiers Découpé or the Cut-Outs. Matisse was looking to replicate how children play with scissors and make new forms.
He did it himself and by cutting various pieces of paper to create bigger designs with them. Matisse's passion for cutting and creating these forms came from his past. He was part of a family of weavers, and by doing this, he felt this connection with his roots again.
Matisse not only made cut-outs of paper for fun. He had a purpose for each one of them. By doing this, he had bigger ambitions for these cut-outs by placing them in bigger spaces such as walls, rooms and even a complete architectural work in stained glass windows and tiles in a local Chapel near his home.
The Papiers Découpés exhibition was held in the Tate Modern Exhibition between April and September in 2014, London. Here you can see a bit more on the official website.
