About Miniature Paintings

The charm of an exquisitely painted work of art can evoke emotion and captivate the mind. Fortunately, you do not need to spend a fortune or dedicate a whole wall to a priceless masterpiece when you opt for a miniature painting. These artistic wonders were once used as personal mementos and can now make a unique decorative piece in a small area of your home, such as a living room shelf or fireplace mantel. Additionally, if you dabble in miniature houses, an antique miniature painting is a perfect addition to your latest 19th century creation. When choosing one of these tiny art pieces you have to decide if you prefer a miniature portrait or landscape. The look you are searching for largely depends on the mini painting's subject matter, material, and frame type. A miniature of a young girl painted on glass with a double rosewood frame has a different effect than a castle landscape on canvas with a bronze frame. eBay offers a large selection of miniature paintings from reliable sellers, so you are bound to find the exact artwork you are searching for.
