American Scene For Sale on 1stDibs

You are likely to find exactly the american scene you’re looking for on 1stDibs, as there is a broad range for sale. In our selection of items, you can find Modern examples as well as a Impressionist version. Making the right choice when shopping for a american scene may mean carefully reviewing examples of this item dating from different eras — you can find an early iteration of this piece from the 19th Century and a newer version made as recently as the 21st Century. Adding a american scene to a room that is mostly decorated in warm neutral tones can yield a welcome change — find a piece on 1stDibs that incorporates elements of gray, brown, black, blue and more. A american scene from Tom Swimm, Cindy Shaoul, Johann Berthelsen, David Landis and Jerry Opper — each of whom created distinctive versions of this kind of work — is worth considering. Artworks like these — often created in paint, oil paint and fabric — can elevate any room of your home. A large american scene can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller american scene, measuring 1.75 high and 4.75 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is an American Scene?

The average selling price for a american scene we offer is $2,605, while they’re typically $120 on the low end and $195,000 for the highest priced.
