How to buy a painting as a gift

If you are reading this article and are considering whether to choose a painting for a gift, then you have already made the right choice. If you approach the purchase with the soul, you will not only make a very valuable gift that will be associated with you, but also emphasize the sophistication of your taste, reverent and attentive attitude to the person presented.
A picture is at the same time a design element, an investment, and a friend, interlocutor, and opponent.
Painting is a beautiful design element
A picture like no other element can decorate the interior, becoming a kind of dominant living room or hall. You give not only a beautiful, but also a valuable thing, in which the artist has put his soul, his vision of the world, which he creatively rethought. The picture shows the sophistication of the taste of its owner, gives a special personality to the interior. You can choose a picture just for the interior. But it is better not to consider only this purely utilitarian function. After all, the picture is much more than a bright beautiful spot on the wall.
A picture can be a profitable investment

If you buy not a picture that is stamped on a printer (reproduction), but a real author’s work of an artist who has his own special author’s style, the value of such a picture will only increase with time. Therefore, we recommend that you carefully choose your painting; it can bring income to its owner.

Painting – friend, opponent, ally, emotional interlocutor
Try to choose a picture that would suit the tastes of the gifted. This is not so difficult. Of course, the easiest way is if you know what your friend is collecting. But even if your picture will be the first in his collection, it is still better that the price is not the only criterion for selection. A good picture can become a real friend and interlocutor for a person. It conveys the artist’s world, his vision of the surrounding reality. Each picture includes an emotional message, which is transmitted during its consideration. That is why it is important that the artist’s worldview resonate with the vision of the world of your friend or colleague.
For romantic people, neutral themes are suitable. It can be landscapes, still lifes, romantic genre scenes.
Pictures of socialist realism are very popular among people who have preserved romantic memories of life in the Soviet Union. The painting of socialist realism embellishes reality, shows a rainbow-perfect ideal world of dreams and dreams. This painting is very popular at present.
If your friend or colleague is more sophisticated in art, versed in painting, loves intellectual painting, then it is better to buy paintings by artists who worked in a revolutionary manner: in the style of avant-garde, symbolism, expressionism, abstract painting.
Buy a painting by contemporary artists
A special position among the paintings is occupied by the work of contemporary artists. Modern artists reflect time, convey modern trends in artistic perception. In each of these paintings, the artist conveyed his own unique vision of the world. Each artist has his own special unique underline. It is the paintings of contemporary artists that are of particular value in the art market. The cost of such paintings is constantly increasing, and your purchase can be not only a very beautiful gift, but in the literal sense – a very valuable investment, for which you will be grateful.

The price of the painting is not the main criterion
