2012 Spring Auction oil market return Realism

Opened in the upcoming 2012 Spring Auction, there is a very interesting phenomenon that many auction companies regarded oil paintings and sculptures in this section focus on realistic oil paintings.

In fact, in last year’s art auction market, realist painting plates often born expensive, a lot of realistic painting of artists such as Chen Yifei, Wang Yidong’s works have created a new record. It also makes a lot of collectors market quite optimistic realist painting.

As early as 2005, with Chen Yifei, Wang Yidong, Ai Xuan, Yang Feiyun as the representative of Chinese realistic painting artist works on board the auction platform, and it created a lot of success, surprising. Since then, the realist painting of the market climbing higher and higher, until 2007, individual artists have been among the ten million yuan, “the club.” However, with the rise of the contemporary art market, crowding out some market share realist painting, plus the impact of the 2008 global financial crisis, realist painting Salvador Dali Prints For Sale, the market from 2008 to 2009 entered a period of adjustment.
71301In 2010, the realist painting of the market rose again. In Beijing Poly autumn auction in 2010, the Chinese contemporary art plates to obtain a total turnover of 440 million yuan, in which part of the turnover of realist painting occupies half share of the entire field. Cold Army “Portrait of like – Ronaldinho” to 31.36 million yuan set a record deal he works; the important work of Ai Xuan, “Holy Mountain” depicts 20.72 million yuan to create a new high auction artists; Wang Yidong’s new work ” Chun Xi Yu Ping ditch “in Poly autumn auction Night to 14.56 million yuan turnover.

Some people think that in 2010 the resumption of fighting in the oil market once again spawned a people’s enthusiasm for realism, “return to realism” in this year is no longer simply a slogan, but rather is driven by the market. After a meteoric rise in 2005 and 2008 after adjusting shock, realistic painting gradually entering the market value of rational stage, a variety of different levels and different levels of realistic painting are easy to find buyers, and those who became famous in the history of art painter works is to become the object of collectors eager to compete, not only that, some contemporary realist accomplished painters also created price.
71302As is expected, in 2011, surging, realistic paintings continue to rise in support of a large number of investment-oriented funds, the price record is a series cracked. China Guardian launched as Chen Yifei’s important work, “Mountain Wind”, with regard to 81.65 million yuan hit a world record auction of Chinese oil paintings. Chen Yifei other works in the Guardian, Cheap fine art Prints at a price of around 40 million yuan turnover. He has strong thunder, another realist painting on behalf of Wang Yidong, which works price also continued to grow in 2011, in Beijing’s auction, Wang Yidong’s “bride” sold for more than 2,000 yuan at high prices.

Why can recast brilliant realist painting after going through ups and downs Industry insiders believe that the following main reasons:? First, realist painting aesthetic sentiment of most people, tastes, the objective is to reduce the threshold for those who appreciate the art of understanding, public I can understand; secondly, realistic oil production of more complex and longer duration, not like some of the paintings could be simple to complete, there are technical indicators and technical content of the painting, its price will have a reference for the coefficient. China has entered the market of most realistic painting OF alive, to identify the authenticity provide a strong witnesses. In addition, compared to other contemporary realist painting works of art, it has been more than ten years of market accumulation, it can not be too much of the decline, compared to the current contemporary art to be much more stable. Of course, it has been a long time since the market accumulation, appreciation of space is limited, so investment should be long-term investment realist painting.

Change oil painting is determined by its function

Western oil painting of the 15th century to mature. Renaissance made humanism thought, marked the beginning of commercial development of modern society. Scientific progress anatomy, perspective school year there. The emergence of Leonardo da Vinci such intellectuals painter, a model with real people painting religious paintings, oil paintings formed the basic shape, so painting is part of varieties of modern society.
1Western painting as the most important goal of the true realistic system is to be decided by the then society. The church needs the artist depicts the performance of religious history painting in the church building, the royal family, aristocrats need for their portrait of the artist, and therefore realistic painting function is to be shipped and development. Western aesthetics is extracted from real modeling system out. After the seventeenth century, Rembrandt painting changed the classical style, portraits have become more secular, ordinary citizens also need to start to appreciate art, thomas mcknight prints therefore diverse styles of painting emerged. You can say that painting from the traditional to the modern evolution of the function itself decide when it turned from the use of functional appreciation function, realism is not the only style of painting.
2And I think that painting features a watershed change is the emergence of Impressionism. Impressionist painter painted landscapes with external light, the effect is real, the screen appears hazy effect, adored by the masses. Art work is no longer so strict as classical art, but colorful, very nice. Nineteenth century modern factors emerged from Cezanne painting, with the development of industrial society, modernism have also produced a variety of genres. While authoring, artists pursue more flat, freehand and brilliant colors, to the decorative beauty and abstract beauty. After the gallery appears, art was as commodities trading. Commercial prosperity more to promote the diversity of artistic styles. A variety of different styles of art Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, Expressionism, etc. are booming up. So, to say Modernism is a product of the entire industrial society.
prints_1Abstract art is in the early 20th century. Kandinsky was first discovered abstract beauty artists, abstract art is widely popular after World War II, the 1950s reached a climax. Arts Centre from Paris to the United States. World War II brought disaster to human beings, people mentally repression, pain how to express it? Expression of traditional painting forms have certain difficulties, and abstract art is not limited, easy performance, so popular that period in the whole world of abstract art had a tremendous influence, we say that society forward again promoting New Art forms of development. andy warhol prints for sale also on the status of the function of art and society from another point of view and needs There is always a link.

All in all, this painting realistic paintings depend on the development of functional changes in society and then gradually evolved into a variety of styles of art. The beauty of the works of different styles from realistic is extracted out of the system, so to say the United States is the source of abstract painting has realistic foundation.
