Vincent Van Gogh is a well recognized artist. This is an oil painting on canvas. The thick paint and brushstroke technique he used bring so much life to this piece. This was painted in 1889.
This painting has a very unique technique called Pointillism. This is an oil painting on canvas. This painting is so large that if you stand close visually it just becomes a bunch of dots.
The Mona Lisa is the most famous piece of artwork. It was painted by Leonardo De Vinci as an oil on canvas painting. She is famous for her expression.
This piece is much different than the others. It is newer, from 2008, and it is digital inkjet medium. The vivid colors help convey the passion of this piece. Every bit of placement is essential also.
This was painted by Michelangelo in the 1500's. This piece is especially interesting not just because of the detail but because he considered himself a sculpture more than a painter.
