When many of us think of posters we don’t think of fine art posters. We think of pop stars and movie posters that we might’ve put on our walls as a child. Or we think of the movie posters that we enjoy even as adults. But fine art posters are a fun and affordable way to enjoy great artwork in your home.
Fine art posters are great for people who have a favorite artist whose work is far too expensive to purchase. Let’s face it–not all of us can afford an original Matisse, Van Gogh or Mondrian. So art fans who appreciate classical art and want to display it in their homes can purchase posters of it. They can also purchase reproductions on canvas that are often called posters but are more expensive than reproductions on paper.
The posters are a good option for people on a very limited budget. While reproduction on canvas of a classic work of art could cost a few thousand dollars, a fine art poster unframed will probably cost anywhere from $20-$100 though it could be more if it’s a very large poster. With the frame such a poster could cost a few hundred dollars or more.
An even more budget option than purchasing a large poster and framing it is purchasing the reproduction in a 5 x 7 or 8 x 10 sizing using a standard picture frame. This doesn’t give nearly the impact that fine art posters can but it’s affordable and if you really enjoy the art and can’t afford a larger reproduction you can at least still enjoy it in your home.
New artwork is typically not available in this format but at places like art.com you can find posters of classic art that’s everything from abstracts to detailed scenes from the Romantic period and the Renaissance. It’s an affordable way to enjoy your favorite artwork every day.
