While we would all love to buy a Van Gogh, we at D.L. are just not quite there. In the meantime, we are on the hunt for found art: at flea markets, estate sales, and the like. We are sharing some of our favorite recently acquired vintage art with you. Most of the frames will be zhushed, with gold leaf or paint, but the one above we bought mainly because of the frame. It is from the 1880’s and spectacular in its antiquity. We envision this painting above a client’s fireplace or at the end of a hallway, creating somewhat of a haunted feel.
This beach scene would look beautiful above a fireplace too. Do you notice the size of the signature? Famous painters are, well, famous for signing their names illegibly and as small as possible. A novice artist is proud of his/her accomplishment and wants the world to know who he/she is!
This painting would bring gorgeous vibrant color to a room lacking it. Town scenes and cityscapes are adored at D.L. Rhein now and always, as visible in both our store windows, which feature Brooklyn, Amsterdam (we think- what about you?), and Paris.
This guy would look fabulous in a man’s office or a den. The color is so vibrant in person, a gorgeous vintage blue.
We have a rotating collection of vintage art at D.L, and we can’t wait to see what we find on the hunt next! Til then…
