Welcome to the golden age of art! The iconic Renaissance period took place between the 14th to 17th centuries and saw the rise of some of Europe’s greatest artists - Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer and Botticelli (to name just a few). Between them, the Renaissance Old Masters created some of the world’s best-loved works of art, from the “Mona Lisa” to the “Creation of Adam”. Even Michelangelo’s famous ceiling paintings in the Sistine chapel have gone down in history as masterpieces. Most of these creations now hang in galleries or the homes of the ultra rich, but with our prints you can now gaze upon these inspiring artworks every day. Hanging Renaissance pictures in your home instantly adds a touch of class and grandeur to your everyday surroundings.
We have a wide range of prints to suit all tastes. Love the gentle ocean colours of Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus”? They could look beautifully soothing in a bathroom. What about the “Mona Lisas” wry smile? Her famous face would be perfect in a hallway, her eyes following the family as they come and go. Or maybe you’re drawn to one of the darker and more dramatic Renaissance pieces, such as Rogier van der Weyden’s evocative “Descent into Hell”? It would certainly be a talking point for visitors! You could even have a print of the Sistine chapel frescos above your bed to inspire you as you drift into sleep.
There’s no reason why Renaissance prints can’t work with modern colour schemes. Picking the right piece for your décor is the key. The subtleness of da Vinci’s famous pencil sketches, like “Vitruvian Man” or his sketch of a roaring lion, would look fantastic on walls painted in strong colours, while the bright colours of one of Hieronymus Bosch’s works, such as the ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’, would add a burst of colour to more muted décor.
At Posterlounge, we use modern printing technologies to bring the great Renaissance masterpieces to you on a variety of materials. A traditional canvas can be great, but giving the old classics a modern edge by printing onto acrylic glass, Alu-Dibond or Forex can create a unique effect. And if you’re on a budget? Our posters are excellent value for money. Take a look through our prints for more inspiration…
