Iconic Art Styles Over the Years

Some art styles are timeless—and for good reason. Our curators highlight their favorite classic styles that are popular among collectors, and that are guaranteed to stand the test of time.

Contemporary Landscapes

The outside world has always been a source of beauty and inspiration for artists. A landscape can liven up a living space or transport you somewhere else.”
—Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator

Pop Art

“Add color and energy to your home with a work of pop art that builds on the legacies of master American artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.”
—Megan Wright, Assistant Curator

Abstract Expressionism

“Abstraction is one of the most widely collected art styles not only because it’s eye-catching, but because its meaning is left up to the viewer—and can therefore be so personal.”
—Aurora Garrison, Assistant Curator


“The human form has inspired artists for centuries, and for good reason. Nudes are dynamic, intimate, and beautiful.”
—Monty Preston, Associate Curator

Black & White Photography

“A stellar black-and-white photograph will stop you in your tracks. Photography is also a great starting point for any new art collector.”

Antique Tapestry

—Monty Preston, Associate Curator

Earth Tones

“Earth tones are more than a color palette—they are a feeling and a mood. Artwork featuring these rich hues from nature will bring a sense of simplicity to your living space and help to create a warm and serene atmosphere.”
—Megan Wright, Assistant Curator


“With its foundations in ancient Greece, Classicism is generally associated with the ideals of harmony and balance. These global artists have embraced the style to create a wide-range of works—from portraits to landscapes—that find beauty in restraint.”
—Aurora Garrison, Assistant Curator

Bold Monochromes

“Sometimes a single color is the most powerful statement of all. These new works by emerging artists daringly utilize a single hue to great impact.”
