OverstockArt.com Creates Quality Art Reproductions

I recently won a gift card from Overstock Art on their Pinterest contest and was pleased to be able to pick out some quality art from their website. This was the first time I ever used the Overstockart.com website or purchased from them and I had to tell you about the experience I had with them.

First, let me tell you a little about Overstockart.com. Overstockart.com sells fine quality reproduction art, mainly from the masters like Claude Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Magritte, Dali, Renoir, Klimt, Degas, Rothko, O’Keeffe, Munch, Miro, and much more, but also some art is from up and coming artists. All of their reproduction art is hand painted. The ones we chose were done on fine canvas.

It took me hours of going through the site to actually figured out what we like and what would match our style of decorating. I have never bought any type of art so this was a first experience for me. Greg and I finally settled on two Monet pieces and one Degas piece.

I really like the Overstockart.com website. It loads fast and is easy to navigate. You can use the search feature or pick by size. Once you pick a painting you like, you then add a frame and it shows up on a little window on that same page so you can see what the art piece will look like finished.

Another great feature that Overstockart.com

offers is the ability to upload a photo of the room you are putting the art in so you can actually see what it will look like in your room. If you don’t have a photo they offer a selection of rooms you can place the art in so you can visualize what it will looks like hanging in a room.

They even have live chat if you get stuck and really need help figuring out what to buy or what looks best in a room.

Once we placed our order we thought we were all set and didn’t think anything else about it. About a week later I received a call from someone at Overstockart.com notifying me that one of the paintings we ordered was backordered and did I want to order something else or wait until it arrived. I opted to wait because we really wanted the Garden Path at Giverny we ordered to go with the Monet “The Artist Garden” since they are similar. What I couldn’t believe is how they gave me a personal call to tell me about the backorder. Most of the time you would get an email or even have to wonder why your order didn’t arrive. I was super impressed by this because that means they have great customer service and go out of their way to make sure you are happy with your purchase.

Within a week or two our first two paintings arrived – the Star Dancer Ballerina by Degas and The Artist’s Garden by Monet.

Here is the Monet painting that we hung up in our living room.

Each painting was packed with much care. It was lined inside with padding and the box they used was made out of thick cardboard.

Inside of the box, each corner of the painting was protected with cardboard on the edges.

When we took the painting out of the box, that was when I was really impressed. I kind of expected a painting I might see at a local store because the prices were so good. What we got was a real hand-painted reproduction masterpiece that I am proud to display in my house. The frame is made out of solid wood and I believe it is carved and also aged to make it look old. We chose the Regal Gold frame with Gold finish for all of our paintings.

On the back you can see that the hand-painted canvas painting has been nailed onto the smaller wood frame and then screwed into the outer frame.  The frame itself is made with care as you see all of the different pieces they used that makes up the finished frame. They attach a wire from one side to the other using a bracket and screws and they also including mounting hardware and instructions for hanging.

This is the Overstockart.com Degas “Star Dancer” Ballerina painting Reproduction we purchased. It is a smaller piece, measuring 8″ x 10″. This one was much cheaper (around $98 at the time) because it was pre-framed so they had many in stock. It came with the exact same frame we chose from the Monet paintings so everything matches.

Up-close you can see the brushstrokes make the artist who painted this Degas reproduction.

This is the The Artist’s Garden by Monet reproduction we purchased for the living room. The painting itself measures 20″ x 24″ and 28-1/2″ X 32-1/2″ framed with the Regal Gold Frame. This Monet painting reminds us of France. We won a trip there and had the chance to visit Monet’s Garden in Giverny. The total price was around $238 (when we bought it). This is a great price for such a quality painting with solid wood frame.

Once again, look up-close at the Monet reproduction at the brushstrokes. These paintings look so authentic. Remember, since this is a reproduction you won’t see the signature of Monet in the corner

We are still waiting for the Garden Path at Giverny by Claude Monet and will update our post with photos once it arrives.
