Impressionist Farm For Sale on 1stDibs

Find the exact impressionist farm you’re shopping for in the variety available on 1stDibs. In our selection of items, you can find Impressionist examples as well as a Abstract version. You’re likely to find the perfect impressionist farm among the distinctive items we have available, which includes versions made as long ago as the 19th Century as well as those made as recently as the 21st Century. If you’re looking to add a impressionist farm to create new energy in an otherwise neutral space in your home, you can find a work on 1stDibs that features elements of brown, gray, beige, green and more. Finding an appealing impressionist farm — no matter the origin — is easy, but Michael Budden, Vahe Yeremyan, Harry Orlyk, Joseph Barrett and Camille Meriot each produced popular versions that are worth a look. Artworks like these — often created in paint, oil paint and fabric — can elevate any room of your home. A large impressionist farm can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller impressionist farm, measuring 4 high and 6 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is a Impressionist Farm?

A impressionist farm can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price for items in our inventory is $1,600, while the lowest priced sells for $112 and the highest can go for as much as $210,000.

Finding the Right Landscape Paintings for You

It could be argued that cave walls were the canvases for the world’s first landscape paintings, which depict and elevate natural scenery through art, but there is a richer history to consider.

The Netherlands was home to landscapes as a major theme in painting as early as the 1500s, and ink-on-silk paintings in China featured mountains and large bodies of water as far back as the third century. Greeks created vast wall paintings that depicted landscapes and grandiose garden scenes, while in the late 15th century and early 16th century, landscapes were increasingly the subject of watercolor works by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and Fra Bartolomeo.

The popularity of religious paintings eventually declined altogether, and by the early 19th century, painters of classical landscapes took to painting out-of-doors (plein-air painting). Paintings of natural scenery were increasingly realistic but romanticized too. Into the 20th century, landscapes remained a major theme for many artists, and while the term “landscape painting” may call to mind images of lush, grassy fields and open seascapes, the genre is characterized by more variety, colors and diverse styles than you may think. Painters working in the photorealist style of landscape painting, for example, seek to create works so lifelike that you may confuse their paint for camera pixels. But if you’re shopping for art to outfit an important room, the work needs to be something with a bit of gravitas (and the right frame is important, too).

Adding a landscape painting to your home can introduce peace and serenity within the confines of your own space. (Some may think of it as an aspirational window of sorts rather than a canvas.) Abstract landscape paintings by the likes of Korean painter Seungyoon Choi or Georgia-based artist Katherine Sandoz, on the other hand, bring pops of color and movement into a room. These landscapes refuse to serve as a background. Elsewhere, Adam Straus’s technology-inspired paintings highlight how our extreme involvement with our devices has removed us from the glory of the world around us. Influenced by modern life and steeped in social commentary, Straus’s landscape paintings make us see our surroundings anew.

Whether you’re seeking works by the world’s most notable names or those authored by underground legends, find a vast collection of landscape paintings on 1stDibs.
