Wichita, Kansas – November 17, 2022 – Oil painting reproduction giant – overstockArt.com – has revealed the Top 10 most popular artworks being purchased for gifting or to spruce up the home in time for the holiday season.
Compiled using insights from the millions of visitors to overstockArt.com’s online store and app, the Top 10 list is loaded with recognizable names – and one unknown artist who captured the Italian coastline so brilliantly, the artwork has eclipsed the name of the painter.
There are several themes that run through the Top 10 selection. Nature – in various forms – is captured, from stormy seascapes to wilting petals, sparkling night skies and blooming flowers. Relationships are also explored, from Klimt’s gold-flecked kiss to clifftop walks with friends, and the protective instinct of a mother expressed by Harry Roseland.
Top 10 most popular artworks for the holiday season
1. Discarded Roses – Pierre-Auguste Renoir
2. Cliff Walk at Pourville – Claude Monet
3. Grande Vase Di Fiori – Pierre-Auguste Renoir
4. Starry Night – Vincent Van Gogh
5. Cafe Terrace at Night – Vincent Van Gogh
6. To The Highest Bidder – Harry Roseland
7. The Storm on the Sea of Galilee – Rembrandt
8. Italy at Dusk – Unknown
9. The Kiss (Full View, Luxury Line) – Gustav Klimt

Founders of the Impressionist movement and long-time friends, Renoir and Monet, both feature twice in the list, for their ability to capture landscapes and moving florals with their brushstrokes.
Post-Impressionist, Van Gogh, also holds two places in the Top 10 list for Starry Night and Café Terrace at Night. The calm and intrigue the artist understood from evening scenes has remained relevant now for more than a century.
VP of eCommerce for overstockArt.com, Amitai Sasson, said the themes that were proving to be the most popular reflected the positive mood of art-lovers and a wider consumer audience.
“We’re seeing people select paintings that are more meaningful and can be enjoyed for long periods of time. As we know, the majority of art from this list has been around for more than a century and still captures minds and hearts,” Mr. Sasson said.
“Impressionist paintings feature heavily in the Top 10 list and we know that’s because they’re charming, but it’s also because every time you look at these artworks, you notice something different. The bring mood-boosting colour and light when they’re introduced to a home,” he said.
