Water in Art
Whether roaring waves or bubbling springs - as one of the four elements, the motif of water has always played a significant role in art. Therefore, the element of water is just as striking in Géricault's "The Raft of the Medusa" as in Monet's "Impression, Sunrise". Even today, many contemporary artists succeed in impressively staging the vital water in painting - discover selected water paintings with rivers, streams and other bodies of water at artSOLITAIRE.
Lonely Beaches and Mysterious Bays
For many people, beaches are among the ultimate places of longing: while some are drawn to the palm-fringed sandy beaches of the South Seas, others prefer to spend their time on the storm-swept coasts of the North and Baltic Seas. The associations we have with the sea prove to be entirely individual: freedom, adventure, relaxation - no wonder images of the sea are so varied and multi-layered in contemporary art. And this does not only apply to the motifs. The techniques and styles reveal an inviting abundance to the viewer as well: acrylic, oil, chalk, expressionism, photorealism or naturalism – in our shop, you can buy stylistically and technically varied water paintings. Come dance on the waves with pictures by Susanne Pohlmann, indulge in holiday memories with Sybille Bross' seascape paintings and lose yourself in the surf in the works by Dagmar Jacobs.
Lake Scenes in Painting - Classical Inspirations and Modern Interpretations
Monet's Water Lilies, which can be found at the MoMA in New York, among other places, are considered classics among lake paintings. The lake as a motif and the flora and fauna around it remain fascinating to this day. So-called seascapes, a term that includes all maritime paintings, are still popular among artists, collectors, and art lovers. Therefore, at artSOLITAIRE, you can expect a carefully curated selection. We present the works of artists who inspire us with naturalistic, lifelike images and abstract, imaginative seascapes.
Of Sweeping Rivers and Babbling Streams - River Paintings in Countless Styles
The great rivers of this earth exude an incomparable fascination: The Amazon, the Nile, and the Ganges - for many cultures they are not only a functional source of water essential for survival but sacred places that are associated with numerous stories and myths. No wonder river images are often found in art. Many contemporary artists have chosen large and small flowing waters as motifs for their works. The spectrum ranges from rather leisurely floodplains, as in the work of Gary Westall, to domestic and exotic riverscapes, as in the work of Arnold Voet, and impressionistic streams, as in the work of Mirek Kuzniar. Here at artSOLITAIRE, you can order works of art with the motif of water directly from the studio of the respective artist - authentic, individual, and absolutely unique.
