How to buy a picture as a gift

If you approach the purchase with a soul, you will not only make a very valuable gift that will be associated with you, but also favorably emphasize the sophistication of Your taste, reverent and attentive attitude to the recipient.
A picture is both a design element, an investment, and a friend-an interlocutor, an opponent.
A picture like no other element can decorate the interior, becoming a kind of dominant living room or hall. You give not only a beautiful, but also a valuable thing, in which the artist has invested his soul, his vision of the world, which he has creatively reinterpreted. The painting shows the refinement of its owner’s taste and gives a special personality to the interior. You can choose a picture just for the interior. But it is better not to consider only this purely utilitarian function. After all, the picture is much more than a bright beautiful spot on the wall.
If you buy not a picture that is stamped on the printer (reproduction), but a real author’s work of an artist who has his own special author’s style, the value of such a picture will only increase with time. Therefore, we recommend that you carefully choose a picture, it can bring income to its owner.

The picture is a friend, an opponent, an ally, an emotional companion
Try to choose a picture that would fit the tastes of the recipient. This is not so difficult to do. Of course, the easiest way is if you know what your friend collects. But even if Your painting is the first in his collection, it is still better that the price is not the only criterion for selection. A good picture can become a real friend and companion for a person. It conveys the artist’s world, his vision of the surrounding reality. Each picture includes an emotional message that is conveyed when it is viewed. This is why it is important that the artist’s worldview resonates with your friend’s or colleague’s vision of the world.
For romantic persons, neutral themes are suitable. This can be landscapes, still lifes, romantic genre scenes.
Pictures of social realism are very popular among people who have kept romantic memories of life in the Soviet Union. Painting of social realism embellishes reality, shows a rosy ideal world of dreams and dreams. This painting is very popular at the present time.
If your friend or colleague is more experienced in art, understands painting, likes intellectual painting, it is better to buy paintings by artists who worked in a revolutionary manner: in the style of avant-garde, symbolism, expressionism, abstract painting.
Buy a painting by contemporary artists
A special position among the paintings is occupied by works of modern artists. Modern artists reflect the time, convey modern trends of artistic perception. In each of these paintings, the artist conveyed his own unique vision of the world. Each artist has his own unique handwriting. It is the paintings of contemporary artists that are particularly valuable in the art market. The cost of such paintings is constantly increasing, and your purchase can become not just a very beautiful gift, but in a literal sense-a very valuable investment, for which You will be grateful.

The price of a painting is not the main criterion
We must remember that not necessarily a good picture is a very expensive purchase. Undoubtedly, Your gift will be expensive for the recipient, but not necessarily for You. We offer a large selection of paintings by contemporary artists, each of which can become a very worthy and valuable exclusive gift for very affordable affordable prices.
