Painting In Painting For Sale on 1stDibs

On 1stDibs, you can find the most appropriate painting in painting for your needs in our varied inventory. There are many Contemporary, Abstract and Post-Impressionist versions of these works for sale. Making the right choice when shopping for a painting in painting may mean carefully reviewing examples of this item dating from different eras — you can find an early iteration of this piece from the 18th Century and a newer version made as recently as the 21st Century. When looking for the right painting in painting for your space, you can search on 1stDibs by color — popular works were created in bold and neutral palettes with elements of gray, brown, black and blue. Creating a painting in painting has been a part of the legacy of many artists, but those crafted by Sunil Das, Henri Duhem, Cindy Shaoul, Richelle Gribble and Mila Akopova are consistently popular. Frequently made by artists working in paint, oil paint and fabric, these artworks are unique and have attracted attention over the years. A large painting in painting can be an attractive addition to some spaces, while smaller examples are available — approximately spanning 0.1 high and 0.1 wide — and may be better suited to a more modest living area.

How Much is a Painting In Painting?

The average selling price for a painting in painting we offer is $2,489, while they’re typically $1 on the low end and $1,020,000 for the highest priced.

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.
