Butterfly Painting For Sale on 1stDibs

Surely you’ll find the exact butterfly painting you’re seeking on 1stDibs — we’ve got a vast assortment for sale. You can easily find an example made in the Abstract style, while we also have 34 Abstract versions to choose from as well. If you’re looking for a butterfly painting from a specific time period, our collection is diverse and broad-ranging, and you’ll find at least one that dates back to the 18th Century while another version may have been produced as recently as the 21st Century. When looking for the right butterfly painting for your space, you can search on 1stDibs by color — popular works were created in bold and neutral palettes with elements of brown, gray, beige and blue. There have been many interesting butterfly painting examples over the years, but those made by Hunt Slonem, Sara Dudman, Alexandru Rădvan, Keng Wai Lee and Apostolos Chantzaras are often thought to be among the most thought-provoking. These artworks were handmade with extraordinary care, with artists most often working in paint, oil paint and fabric. A large butterfly painting can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller butterfly painting, measuring 2.76 high and 3.55 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is a Butterfly Painting?

The price for an artwork of this kind can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — a butterfly painting in our inventory may begin at $346 and can go as high as $477,328, while the average can fetch as much as $4,500.

Finding the Right Paintings for You

Painting is an art form that has spanned innumerable cultures, with artists using the medium to tell stories, explore and communicate ideas and express themselves. To bring antique and vintage paintings into your home is to celebrate and share in the long tradition of this discipline.

When we look at paintings, particularly those that originated in the past, we learn about history, other cultures and countries of the world. Like every other work of art, paintings — whether they are contemporary creations or works that were made during the 19th century — can often help us clearly see and understand the world around us in a meaningful and interesting way. Cave walls were the canvases for what were arguably the world’s first landscape paintings, which depict natural scenery through art. Portrait paintings and drawings, which, along with sculpture, were how someone’s appearance was recorded prior to the advent of photography, are at least as old as Ancient Egypt. In the Netherlands, landscapes were a major theme for painters as early as the 1500s. Later, artists in Greece, Rome and elsewhere created vast wall paintings to decorate stately homes, churches and tombs. Today, creating a wall of art is a wonderful way to enhance your space, showcase beautiful pieces and tie an interior design together.

No matter your preference, whether you favor Post-Impressionist paintings, animal paintings, Surrealism, Pop art or another movement or specific period, arranging art on a blank wall allows you to evoke emotions in a room while also showing off your tastes and interests. A symmetrical wall arrangement may comprise a grid of four to six pieces or, for an odd number of works, a horizontal row. Asymmetrical arrangements, which may be small clusters of art or large, salon-style gallery walls, have a more collected and eclectic feel. Download the 1stDibs app, which includes a handy “View on Wall” feature that allows you to see how a particular artwork will look on a particular wall, and read about how to arrange wall art. And if you’re searching for the perfect palette for your interior design project, what better place to turn than to the art world’s masters of color?

On 1stDibs, you’ll find an expansive collection of paintings and other fine art for your home or office. Browse abstract paintings, portrait paintings, paintings by popular artists and more today.
