How to Shop for Modern Paintings

There are lots of differences between modern and traditional paintings. Modern art is a mixture of real and imaginary life, whereas traditional art takes inspiration from nature to a great extent, and also from some parts of real life.

While talking about traditional art, how can one forget about Mona Lisa painting? This single painting is enough to compete with any modern artwork. The painting was portrayed by an Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci in oil on a poplar panel. You can still see the painting at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.

The half-length portrait of the woman has a magical kind of attraction, and the facial expression can describe the lady’s mood while it was being portrayed. The painting seems chasing you. Either you move left or right, it seems her eyes catch all your positions. It won’t be unrealistic to say that the artwork is alive.

Abstract Paintings

Abstract Paintings

Modern paintings look thought-provoking. The imagination of an artist without knowing any boundaries are represented on canvases. A human face, but the body is of an animal? Art seems outrageous at times, but it gets appreciation from a vast majority of people. The artist named Kazimir Malevich was the first modern artist who became famous for his "Black Square".

If you don’t know the artist yet, it means you are not a real lover of modern art. The "Black Square" is nothing but literally a canvas full of black color with a single white dot in the middle. Imagine the art, you can find yourself trapped in a Mesocyclone and the dot seems to be the only door to get out of it. There are different points of views on this unique artwork.

There is no official definition of traditional or modern paintings. The 19th century is referred to as the century of modern art. The paintings prior to it are broadly considered to be traditional art.
