Timeless Art for Your Home

The Mona Lisa is the most popular painting in the entire world. 

Millions of people flock to the Louvre Museum in Paris for a chance to catch a glimpse of Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic work. The woman in the painting possesses ordinary features; in fact there is nothing really outstanding about her face, other than the mysterious smirk she seems to project to whoever admires her. How does the Mona Lisa manage to captivate the hearts and minds of many, despite it being centuries old? 

The answer is simple: it is timeless. 

Art in itself is timeless. No matter the medium used or what the artist’s style is, the beauty of art is that it always stays beautiful. 

Several art styles, developed and honed in the past by masterful hands and brilliant minds,

grace the walls of museums all over the world. Here are some of the most timeless art styles. 

Top Art Styles

Over the centuries art has evolved into different styles and movements that it can be hard to believe that they are related, one way or another. Art styles are also relative to the place where it was developed.

Abstract art

 When people come face to face with abstract art, they are often left wondering, “what am I looking at?” 

Abstract art is not everyone’s cup of tea because it is, well, abstract. There is nothing concrete about the painting and it may look like a blur of colours to you. However, this is what makes abstract art appealing to its fans - that splash of blue could symbolise peace or that streak of black represents chaos in today’s world. 

Abstract art isn’t what it is, until you make it what it’s supposed to be. Each piece speaks to someone in a different way which makes it ever so alluring.

Derived from the Portuguese word of barocco (to mean irregular pearl or stone), the baroque art style dominated the European scene from the 1590s to the 1740s. 

Defined by dramatic scenes with the use of deep colours to create illusions of light, shadows, and depth, baroque art often depicts moments of uncertainty and tension, versus works done during the Renaissance period where there was an emphasis of tranquillity.

These works of art are based on “impressions” of a certain scene and artists aim to depict them as accurately as they can. With the use of small brush strokes and the masterful use of paint, the finished work is a wonderful mixture of soft colours with a misty finish. Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro and Alfred Sisley are some of the most well-loved impressionist artists.

You don’t have to visit a museum to see the beauty of impressionist art though, you can bring it into your own home in the form of a wall art print. Check out our Monet range of wall prints here

Art deco

Popular during the First World War to the 1930s, art deco is an art style that embraced the age of modernism. The art deco movement was not limited to paintings but encompassed various art fields - architecture, fashion, interior design, etc. 

Art deco puts heavy emphasis on lines and symmetry. Art deco was - and still is - a glamorous look into everyday living during the early 20th century.

Thanks to the camera, we can now capture moments of reality as they happen. Photography is considered a form of art and the beauty of it is that almost anyone can take wonderful photos. With the invention of the smartphone and their incredible high definition cameras now, it has made it easier for people to immortalise a memory with just a click of a button. 

If you’re not too much of a photographer yourself, don’t worry, because we have a range of photography wall art prints that you can have framed and delivered anywhere in Australia here. 

Contemporary art

This art style embraces the world we are facing now. Artists draw inspiration from different world issues and often put their own spin about it. Since it is an art style that is being used today, it is quite difficult to describe it in a more definitive manner. 

What makes art timeless?

What are the traits of a timeless piece of art?

Is it because of the medium used or was it painted by a known artist?

Trying to dissect what makes certain art pieces stand the test of time will take a while; thankfully there are traits common to timeless art pieces that truly makes them the diamond in the rough. 

  • They are not trendy: timeless pieces of art hardly go with the flow. They are uncommon and stand out from the crowd. 
  • They are mysterious: the beauty of timeless pieces of art is that they can be both familiar and mysterious. It pulls you in but also keeps you at bay. It keeps you guessing, always on your toes, and no matter how many times you look at it, you may come up with a whole new different impression of it every single time. 
  • Timeless art just happens: there is no one-all formula to creating timeless pieces of art. Let’s take the Mona Lisa as a perfect example: she is said to be the wife of an Italian merchant who commissioned the great Leonard da Vinci. It is very safe to say that da Vinci never told himself, “This will be a masterpiece that the entire world will want to see!” He was simply doing what he was paid to do because he was extremely good at it.
