Art Commissions: what is the process?

Art Commissions: what is the process? Before we begin, let’s take a quick look at the official definition. Commissioning art is the act of hiring an artist to create a piece of artwork based on the client’s request. There are various reasons why clients commission artworks. One reason could be because they appreciate the work of an artist, or rather they wish to own an original piece of artwork, tailored to a specific dimension within a given budget. Art commissioning may seem intimidating at first. Luckily, a client can contact their local gallery to help guide them to their final selection of a suitable artist who will be able to adhere to their specific brief. Moreover, most artists are willing to work on art commissions…

Do Art Commissions Include Sculptures or Installation Works?

Do art commissions include sculptures or installation works? When we hear about commissioned pieces, we typically think of classical portraiture, but this is far from the only genre available upon request. Sculptors and installation artists offer an impressive 3-D alternative for those interested in purchasing original art. Sculpture commissions can be extremely varied to suit the needs of the client, so it is important to consider the specialization of the artist. For example, some sculptors excel at creating lifelike statues with minimal source materials. These options would be best for commissions portraying historical or biblical figures for churches or educational organisations. Contrarily, some artists prioritize construction and form in their works, which is best suited for abstract sculptures placed within modern architecture. Other artists prefer…

Modern Portrait Style Art Commissions Take Inspiration from Vermeer

Many modern portrait style art commissions take inspiration from Vermeer. Portrait art is intended to depict a specific human subject and the attributes of their life. Johannes Vermeer helped to shape this genre in the 17th century, and his influence has remained strong in the modern art world. To explore this, we will analyze his painting entitled Young Woman with a Lute (ca.1662–1663). This painting depicts a young woman looking out of the window as she tunes her lute in preparation for a duet, likely with the mysterious man for whom her gaze awaits. Music during this time, much like portraiture itself, was exclusive to elites and noble individuals of high society. The objects we see hold as much power as the subject herself, symbolizing…

How Art Commissions Can Take Inspiration from Household Items

Did you know that art commissions can take inspiration from household items? Any object you hold in esteem (such as an ornamental flower vase or a sentimental blanket) can be transformed into an abstract art piece in the style of the artist you admire. The item will be artistically memorialized, making for a great conversation piece that will increase the value of your interior design. There are many artist-influenced styles to choose from when considering a commission piece. One might turn to historical examples, such as Andy Warhol or Vincent Van Gogh, who both regularly made commissioned work. Even a simple dining room chair can take you on an artistic journey through abstraction and expressionism. For example, a Warhol inspired piece might contain repetitive imagery,…

The History of Art Commissions

From castles to your living room, Latest Sale explores the history of art commissions. Historically, art commissions were exclusive to the rich and noble people of society. Artists were commissioned to create bespoke pieces typically in portrait form, showcasing the subject’s decadent wealth and power. This peaked during the Renaissance Era, as the old masters perfected their skill in the accurate human form. Art commissions could also be religious in nature. For example, the Sistine Chapel ceiling by Michelangelo was a commissioned project, as well as The Last Supper by Leonardo De Vinci. In the 20th century, the world of art commissions began to shift. Governments began to commission public pieces from celebrated artists for reasons that differed to their opulent predecessors. In 1937, Pablo…
