Valentine’s Day is fast approaching so what could be more appropriate for the ‘Category of the Month’ than love and romance.
From erotic art to portraits, from abstract to floral, love and romance is depicted in many ways: a bouquet of flowers for the loved one, a happy couple dressed up for celebration or an erotic love scene.
From In the Garden by Auguste Renoire to The Kiss by Gustav Klimt, artists of all time have been inspired by love throughout the centuries. Such paintings have the power to resonate with all of us because the theme of love is universal.
At Art2Arts, love is present through artworks by Carmen Tyrrell, Denise Mitchell and Elena Kourenkova to name but a few. While Carmen Tyrrell captures the passion of the couples she depicts, Denise Mitchell paints a couple of adorable snuggling love birds to illustrate the theme of love.
But romance can be also shown in abstract or decorative paintings showcasing heart shapes like in Rachel McCullock’s artworks or Tina Ashton’s love trees.
Love is ever present in our daily life, therefore it is only natural to make it a great source of inspiration for artists and a popular choice for collectors.
