Blue Screen For Sale on 1stDibs

Surely you’ll find the exact blue screen you’re seeking on 1stDibs — we’ve got a vast assortment for sale. Find Abstract versions now, or shop for Abstract creations for a more modern example of these cherished works. Finding the perfect blue screen may mean sifting through those created during different time periods — you can find an early version that dates to the 20th Century and a newer variation that were made as recently as the 21st Century. When looking for the right blue screen for your space, you can search on 1stDibs by color — popular works were created in bold and neutral palettes with elements of blue, gray, black and brown. A blue screen from George Rodrigue, Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana, Victor Vasarely and Donald Sultan — each of whom created distinctive versions of this kind of work — is worth considering. Artworks like these of any era or style can make for thoughtful decor in any space, but a selection from our variety of those made in screen print, paper and paint can add an especially memorable touch. A large blue screen can be an attractive addition to some spaces, while smaller examples are available — approximately spanning 0.79 high and 0.04 wide — and may be better suited to a more modest living area.

How Much is a Blue Screen?

A blue screen can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price for items in our inventory is $1,500, while the lowest priced sells for $100 and the highest can go for as much as $210,000.

Finding the Right Prints and Multiples for You

Decorating with fine-art prints — whether they’re figurative prints, abstract prints or another variety — has always been a practical way of bringing a space to life as well as bringing works by an artist you love into your home.

Pursued in the 1960s and ’70s, largely by Pop artists drawn to its associations with mass production, advertising, packaging and seriality, as well as those challenging the primacy of the Abstract Expressionist brushstroke, printmaking was embraced in the 1980s by painters and conceptual artists ranging from David Salle and Elizabeth Murray to Adrian Piper and Sherrie Levine.

Printmaking is the transfer of an image from one surface to another. An artist takes a material like stone, metal, wood or wax, carves, incises, draws or otherwise marks it with an image, inks or paints it and then transfers the image to a piece of paper or other material.

Fine-art prints are frequently confused with their more commercial counterparts. After all, our closest connection to the printed image is through mass-produced newspapers, magazines and books, and many people don’t realize that even though prints are editions, they start with an original image created by an artist with the intent of reproducing it in a small batch. Fine-art prints are created in strictly limited editions — 20 or 30 or maybe 50 — and are always based on an image created specifically to be made into an edition.

Many people think of revered Dutch artist Rembrandt as a painter but may not know that he was a printmaker as well. His prints have been preserved in time along with the work of other celebrated printmakers such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Andy Warhol. These fine-art prints are still highly sought after by collectors.

“It’s another tool in the artist’s toolbox, just like painting or sculpture or anything else that an artist uses in the service of mark making or expressing him- or herself,” says International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) vice president Betsy Senior, of New York’s Betsy Senior Fine Art, Inc.

Because artist’s editions tend to be more affordable and available than his or her unique works, they’re more accessible and can be a great opportunity to bring a variety of colors, textures and shapes into a space.

For tight corners, select small fine-art prints as opposed to the oversized bold piece you’ll hang as a focal point in the dining area. But be careful not to choose something that is too big for your space. And feel free to lean into it if need be — not every work needs picture-hanging hooks. Leaning a larger fine-art print against the wall behind a bookcase can add a stylish installation-type dynamic to your living room. (Read more about how to arrange wall art here.)

Find the fine-art prints you’re looking for on 1stDibs today.
