How to be a famous artist? You'll get answer after read their biography and stories on Toperfect.
 

Common Points of Famous Paintings

 
There have been many eras in painting history where a lot of unforgettable work was created. But how does one era stack up next to the other? Was there more personality in the 1800’s than the 1900’s? And why are some famous oil paintings of more historical significance than others? All of these questions will be answered here and more, as you’ll see that a famous artist’s life and personality can be told with a single painting.

Popularity Based On Being Classics of the Era

With so many ways to establish art and what it means, some of the most famous artists paintings of the era marked an important cause and effect in the real world. The finished works sometimes strikes a delicate balance of what the painter sees and what they wish could be.

The Realism art movement started in 1850’s in a much different France than everyone is used to. The result of the movement was due to the leftover emotions from the 1848 Revolution in France. Realism in some ways found a way to connect people of different backgrounds and not only put them in the same famous painting, but to gather interest in artwork itself.

If examining the Rococo era in the 18th century then you would presume correctly that it would focus on luxury details. This was a huge turn from the enforced Baroque period, where a specific style was enforced and made famous art paintings beautiful, but oddly generic. For the many years that the Rococo era took place there were paintings made in France that have stood the test of time. Besides having many unforgettable pieces, it showed that an artist can’t be put in a box and expect to stay put.

The Historical Value of Famous Paintings

Certain paintings explore an important event in history and how it affects human beings. There are a couple that spring to mind, but let’s stick to context rather than particulars.

Anti-war paintings have been a good way for famous artists to show their displeasure over war or the effects of it. The pen may be mightier than the sword, but the brush can really drive home a point if the artist tries enough. Besides bringing attention to important social issues that may go unnoticed by the world, it puts a lot of emphasis on stopping and thinking about the world at its present and its future. Many of these creations extend beyond painting and are so universal that they can apply to several human issues. This is the essence of the historical value of famous oil paintings like these, since they never lose their ability to speak about their platform.

If you want to move past war and go to status and class, history has shown many paintings that have a prime focus on classism issues. The prejudice associated with such an act is often mocked in famous paintings by embellishing the act to the point where it takes a cartoonish caricature on the canvas. In a single stroke of a brush the famous artist instantly defines the differences in the classes and why it is so absurd.

Paintings That Were the Brainchild of Changing Eras

There will always be change, and even if the amount of change in the art world over the years can be dizzying, it still points to one thing; progression. Art has continued to progress over the years and is now expressed in several different types of media. But with each new era there is a famous painting that defines it, and that is where the value is.

Impressionism and Post-Impressionism were both born out of necessity to be different than the norm. On the surface this may seem like a simple change of pace, but the first leg of Impressionism involved horrible social outcry. It took years for society to accept it for what it was, and by the time the famous paintings were considered the new standard, Post-Impressionism took its place. Art is always one step ahead of society, never forget that.

Sometimes the restrictions of society completely change the way an artist work. A good example of this is when Abstract painting became a big thing. It didn’t happen naturally overnight, and was the will of Islamic and Jewish famous artists that were restricted from using human form in paintings. The work is so involving that it eventually spread to other types of art, and is still one of the more popular eras to this date. Abstract painting can be thought of a workaround if you want it to be that. But the truth is it was just the natural progression of an art form.

Why Famous Artists Paintings Stand Out Above Normal Paintings

The creation of paintings are a dime a dozen in the industry, so what makes a painting famous and stand out over the others?

And the answer will always be the charisma of the creator, and how much of himself he puts onto the canvas. Artists use emotion to create, with technique a lesser priority. This might sound wrong, but think about the famous art paintings of our time. There is nothing that can’t be duplicated by another artist with enough time and know how. But no matter how close he gets to the original painting, he will never capture its essence. Creators of famous oil paintings are responsible for how much of their soul they want to bear when creating. So if you look at the most famous works of art in history, you will learn more about the creator than in any of his other lesser works. The two go hand and hand, and are important when trying to figure out the popularity of some paintings over others.

Summary

Famous paintings will always have a place in history and allow the artist to live on with his work. With all of the different ways to tell a story there will be some interesting tie-ins when it is used to enforce an idea. The many social, political and heartbreak memories told in famous artists paintings are one of the many things that make them so valuable.
