French Painting Deco For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are many versions of the ideal French painting deco for your home. A French painting deco — often made from paint, fabric and canvas — can elevate any home. There are many kinds of the French painting deco you’re looking for, from those produced as long ago as the 19th Century to those made as recently as the 21st Century. A French painting deco is a generally popular piece of furniture, but those created in Art Deco and Arts and Crafts styles are sought with frequency. Erté, Etienne Beothy and Yves Diey each produced at least one beautiful French painting deco that is worth considering.

How Much is a French Painting Deco?

Prices for a French painting deco can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, they begin at $275 and can go as high as $180,000, while the average can fetch as much as $3,517.

Finding the Right Paintings for You

When paired with the perfect frame, the right wall decorations can either subtly showcase your personality or steal the show altogether. 

The earliest paintings were created on the walls of caves, proving even our ancient ancestors knew that striking artwork is meant to be on display. Cave paintings on an Indonesian island are reportedly older than the earliest cave art in Spain and France, and the figurative paintings back then were produced with inorganic pigments like iron oxide. Later, the people of Ancient Greece — who learned about art from the Egyptians before them — conceived panel paintings of wax and tempera that were collected and publicly displayed. In the centuries that followed, artists would be commissioned to create large-scale wall murals and frescoed ceilings in sprawling European palaces and in the homes of the aristocracy.

Today, 1stDibs makes it easy for you to celebrate this rich history in your own home. Our collection of paintings includes Art Deco paintings, baroque art and a broad range of other categories. Search by material, period or other attributes to find the right fit — browse an array of 19th century landscape paintings in giltwood frames or abstract oil paintings and portraits made during the 1950s and ‘60s.

An understated contemporary work can complement your space’s color palette without drawing the focus away from the other pivotal design choices you’ve made over the years. Roy Lichtenstein’s Pop art, on the other hand, demands attention with its array of vibrant hues and subjects inspired by popular culture. 

Whether you aim to create a gallery in your home or build a single, stunning focal point, you can find what you’re looking for in an extensive inventory of paintings on 1stDibs.
