Figurative Painting Face For Sale on 1stDibs

On 1stDibs, you can find the most appropriate figurative painting face for your needs in our varied inventory. In our selection of items, you can find Contemporary examples as well as a Modern version. Finding the perfect figurative painting face may mean sifting through those created during different time periods — you can find an early version that dates to the 18th Century and a newer variation that were made as recently as the 21st Century. On 1stDibs, the right figurative painting face is waiting for you and the choices span a range of colors that includes gray, brown, beige and blue. Creating a figurative painting face has been a part of the legacy of many artists, but those crafted by Tapas Ghosal, Sekhar Kar, Abesh Bivore Mitra, Sunil Das and Jogen Chowdhury are consistently popular. These artworks were handmade with extraordinary care, with artists most often working in paint, acrylic paint and synthetic resin paint. A large figurative painting face can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller figurative painting face, measuring 2.675 high and 0.1 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is a Figurative Painting Face?
