You are likely to find exactly the piece of impressionist figural art you’re looking for on 1stDibs, as there is a broad range for sale. There are many Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Expressionist versions of these works for sale. If you’re looking for an item from our selection of impressionist figural art 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. On 1stDibs, the right choice in our collection of impressionist figural art is waiting for you and the choices span a range of colors that includes gray, brown, black and blue. Finding an appealing object in our assortment of impressionist figural art — no matter the origin — is easy, but Cindy Shaoul, Henri Duhem, Maria Bertran, Marie Duhem and Sal Jones each produced popular versions that are worth a look. These artworks were handmade with extraordinary care, with artists most often working in paint, oil paint and fabric. A large option in this array of impressionist figural art can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller piece of impressionist figural art, measuring 4.5 high and 3.5 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is a Impressionist Figural Art?

The price for an artwork of this kind can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — a piece of impressionist figural art in our inventory may begin at $308 and can go as high as $144,000, while the average can fetch as much as $3,004.

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.
