Traditional Art Gift Guide

I’ve been working with , and they’ve just released several for the holidays. I’m usually drawn to a quirky, modern style, but today I’m sharing

I chose each of these paintings (classics by the like of Manet and Whistler) because they excite me, but also because I could see them appealing to a wide range of people. I kept family members in mind, asking myself “would my mom like this? My grandma, or my uncle?” as my litmus test.

    I must say that #4 is my absolute favorite. That is just the best to snuggle a little one. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :) I’d love to receive that as a gift.

      What I love about it is that it was painted in the late 1800s, but it still feels intimate and true today. Timeless.

    I really liked number 4 as well – and when I clicked the link I got ”
    Sorry, this product is no longer available” :(

      Oh no! I thought it may have sold out since I linked to it, but I just checked and it was still available, so I’m not sure what happened.

    Aha – I think it is because it is automatically redirecting me to the British site, whatever I try to tell it to do. Ah well. I can still look at the picture here!

    As orignials they’re works of art. As reproductions they’re more “hotel art” than art. I’d rather go for something original. Just one persons opinion,
