Here are a few very famous paintings, illustrating some different painting styles: 

Orange, Red, Yellow is a renowned “color field” painting by the artist Mark Rothko. He painted this impressive artwork in 1961, and it was considered one of the most expensive paintings in history. In fact, it cost over $86 million when it was sold at a public auction in 2012.

In early 1877 Monet started work on a series of paintings of The Saint-Lazare Station, turning again to the subject of modern life. Monet was fascinated by the steam engines; the people in his series of paintings recede into incidentals against the bigger might of the train.  His engines dominate the paintings, their solidity in direct contrast to the vapor of their steam.

The Mona Lisa is a half-length portrait painting by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci. Considered an archetypal masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance, it has been described as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world".

Cuchi's Sweetie Dogs - Made in watercolor and oil over the course of his career, John Baeder's diner paintings are his most known and acclaimed works. They capture the essence of American daily life and the less-than-glamorous establishments that were once at the heart of middle class America.

Three Musicians is a perfect example of Picasso's Cubist style. In Cubism, the subject of the artwork is transformed into a sequence of planes, lines, and arcs. Cubism has been described as an intellectual style because the artists analyzed the shapes of their subjects and reinvented them on the canvas. The viewer must reconstruct the subject and space of the work by comparing the different shapes and forms to determine what each one represents. Through this process, the viewer participates with the artist in making the artwork make sense.


The dessert: harmony in red (The red room), 1908, is considered by some art historians to be Matisse's masterpiece. Matisse developed his style using areas of flat, brilliant and often unnatural colour and invariably outlined his forms in a manner similar to Van Gogh. This fauvist painting has no central focal point. The painting initially was ordered as 'Harmony in Blue,' but Matisse was dissatisfied with the result, so he painted it over with his preferred red.



Van Gogh’s paintings of Sunflowers are among his most famous. He did them in Arles, in the south of France, in 1888 and 1889. Vincent painted a total of five large canvases with sunflowers in a vase, with three shades of yellow ‘and nothing else’. In this way, he demonstrated that it was possible to create an image with numerous variations of a single colour, without any loss of eloquence.
