Why choose a painting from the 1800s?

A painting that is potentially over two hundred years old has a story to tell. Think of the eyes that have gazed upon it. Your dining room blank canvas might be screaming out for a 19th-century Japanese gold painting with its intricate detailing and striking colour palette. Or perhaps you’re after something a little more subtle? A simple George Cope etching could be the start of your burgeoning art collection. Paintings from the 1800s ooze history and character. Whether you adding to an already established art curation, you’re on the hunt for a particular aesthetic for a client, or you just fancy something pretty for your wall, an 1800s painting could be just what you’re looking for. For more fine art variety, explore Vinterior's sculpture and photography collections too.

What type of paintings were popular in the 1800s?

Pre-1800s paintings were romantic in style. Characterised by broad brushstrokes, a lightness of touch, and subtle colour palette, the rococo style was popular until the late 1700s.

At the start of the 19th-century, neoclassicism became the dominant painting style. Portraits, landscapes and still life paintings became more bold and structural in style to reflect the shift in architectural and decorative aesthetics of the era. Both of these styles and more can be found in Vinterior’s extensive edit.
