***AUG 22 RELEASE DATE*** Girl with a Pearl Earring (Dutch: Meisje met de Parel) is an oil painting by Dutch Golden Age painter Johannes Vermeer. Going by various names over the centuries, it became known by its present title towards the end of the 20th century after the earring worn by the girl portrayed there. The work has been in the collection of the Mauritshuis in The Hague since 1902.
The work is oil on canvas and is signed “IVMeer” but not dated. It is estimated to have been painted around 1665. After the most recent restoration of the painting in 1994, the subtle color scheme and the intimacy of the girl’s gaze toward the viewer have been greatly enhanced.
The Starry Night is a post-impressionist oil-on-canvas painting by the Dutch Post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Painted in June 1889, it depicts the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, just before sunrise, with the addition of an imaginary village. Widely regarded as Van Gogh’s magnum opus, The Starry Night is one of the most recognizable paintings in Western art.
In the aftermath of the 23 December 1888 breakdown that resulted in the self-mutilation of his left ear, Van Gogh voluntarily admitted himself to the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole lunatic asylum on 8 May 1889. The Starry Night was painted mid-June by around 18 June, the date he wrote to his brother Theo to say he had a new study of a starry sky. It has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City since 1941.
The piece symbolizes Van Gogh’s deteriorating mental state and is estimated to be worth over 100 million dollars.
Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe / The Luncheon on the Grass – originally titled Le Bain (The Bath) – is an impressionist oil on canvas painting by Édouard Manet created in 1862 and 1863.
It depicts a female nude and a scantily dressed female bather on a picnic with two fully dressed men in a rural setting. Rejected by the Salon jury of 1863, Manet seized the opportunity to exhibit this and two other paintings in the 1863 Salon des Refusés, where the painting sparked public notoriety and controversy. The artwork broke away from the classical view that art should obey established conventions and sought to achieve timelessness.
The work is now in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. A smaller, earlier version of the image is currently exposed at the Courtauld Gallery, London.
Oil Paintings for Sale – An Indelible Piece of Art History
Oil painting is a technique that has been used for centuries to create captivating pieces of art. The origins of oil painting date back to the 7th, but in the 15th century in the Netherlands, where painters used linseed oils to bind pigments together in paint, it grew in popularity. Their method allowed for a progressive yet subtle layering of colours, creating a depth and luminosity that was previously impossible. The technique quickly spread throughout Europe, and by the 16th century, it became the most prominent method of painting.
Oil Painting – A Versatile Medium That Stands the Test of Time
Oil painting is renowned for its ability to create an array of textures and effects. Its slow-drying properties give it a unique capacity for blending and layering colours, producing luminosity and great depth. Furthermore, oil paints can be used in thick or thin layers, creating several different textures from soft to impasto.
Through the centuries, artists have adopted and developed the technique to create some of the most acclaimed works of art in history. These famous oil paintings include Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Night, and Rembrandt van Rijn's The Night Watch.
Because oil painting is a slow process that requires the artist to wait for a layer to dry before moving on to the next, artists can work and rework their canvas until it is complete. This meticulous process gives an oil painting its archival stability, ensuring the vibrancy and beauty of the piece lasts for generations.
