Oil paintings

Amersfoort Art has a large collection of oil paintings.

Oil paintings are works of art that use oil paint as their medium. Oil paint is a paint made from pigments mixed with a binder of oil, usually linseed oil. Oil paint dries slowly, giving the artist more time to work on the artwork and mix colors. The result is a rich and deep painting with a glossy finish.

Oil paintings can be created on canvas, wood, paper and other surfaces. They can range from realistic to abstract, and can depict various subjects, such as portraits, landscapes, still lifes and abstract designs.

Oil paint is one of the oldest and most popular paints in art history and has inspired many famous artists, including Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Monet and Picasso. Oil paintings are often considered masterpieces because of their rich colors, depth and texture. Amersfoort Art includes oil paintings by Jochem de Graaf, Henry Brand, Caspar van Houten and many more. View the full collection online or stop by the gallery in Amersfoort!
