Paul Cézanne (19 January 1839 – 22 October 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th-century conception of artistic endeavor to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century.

Roses from Wargemont by Auguste Renoir, 1885

Fine Art Print on Canvas Giclee Reproduction


Pierre-Auguste Renoir (25 February 1841 – 3 December 1919) was a French artist who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. Renoir's paintings are notable for their vibrant light and saturated color, most often focusing on people in intimate and candid compositions. As a celebrator of beauty and especially feminine sensuality, Renoir was inspired by the style and subject matter of previous modern painters Camille Pissarro and Édouard Manet.

Sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh, 1888-1889
Fine Art Print on Canvas Giclee Reproduction
 

Van Gogh’ paintings of Sunflowers are among his most famous. He did them in Arles, in the south of France, in 1888 and 1889. Vincent painted a total of five large canvases with sunflowers in a vase, with three shades of yellow ‘and nothing else’. In this way, he demonstrated that it was possible to create an image with numerous variations of a single color, without any loss of eloquence.
