Cover Painting For Sale on 1stDibs

You are likely to find exactly the cover painting you’re looking for on 1stDibs, as there is a broad range for sale. Find Contemporary versions now, or shop for Contemporary creations for a more modern example of these cherished works. If you’re looking for a cover 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 19th Century while another version may have been produced as recently as the 21st Century. Adding a cover painting 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 brown, gray, beige, blue and more. Creating a cover painting has been a part of the legacy of many artists, but those crafted by Leslie Thrasher, Joanne Freeman, Joseph Christian Leyendecker, Stevan Dohanos and Joseph Francis Kernan are consistently popular. 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 paint, oil paint and fabric can add an especially memorable touch.
