Tuscan Wall Art
By Tuscany's Greatest Renaissance Artists

All of the above Tuscan print art was created by home-grown Tuscan artists. You'll find much more of their work in the Framed Tuscan Art section on this site.

Born in Caprese, a village near the town of Arezzo in Tuscany, Michelangelo Buonarroti (1474-1564) spent much of his life in Florence and in Rome. He created his famous David  while still in his twenties, and the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome is considered one of his most important works.

Like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was a Tuscan - and not just a fine artist, but also a poet, scientist, architect and engineer.

Continue looking for Tuscan art prints, and the next artist you'll come across is Sandro Botticelli (c.1445-1510), a native of Florence who is most famous for his paintings The Birth of Venus and Primavera.

Fra Angelico (c.1395-1455), a monk from Rupecanina (near Fiesole, Tuscany) was part of the early Renaissance movement in Italy. He painted beautiful jewel-like religious scenes (and was later beatified for his virtue and humility).

Next up, Florence-born Fra Filippo Lippi (1406-1469) whose ethereal paintings of the Madonna were echoed by his pupil Botticelli, as well as his equally famous son, Filippino Lippi (c.1457-1504).

The last Tuscan painter in this section is Piero della Francesca (c.1415-1492), who was also a distinguished mathematician, and is most famous for his fresco cycle The Legend of the True Cross in Arezzo, Tuscany.

Is it something in the Tuscan water?  How can such a small piece of land (8880 square miles) produce such a wealth of outstanding artists?

The Tuscan art prints above are just a tiny selection - click any picture, type a painter's name plus 'print' (e.g. 'Michelangelo Buonarroti print') into the Amazon search box, and explore a treasure trove of Renaissance Tuscan art prints. Also, check out the page on Framed Tuscan Art for more Tuscan Renaissance art prints!

Tuscan-Style Still Life:
A Tuscany Look, Close Up

There are more ways than one to give your home a Tuscany look: these Tuscan theme posters capture the simple, alluring beauty of Italian interiors.

Loran Speck is a California-based painter whose work is inspired and informed by the Italian Renaissance, and his fine art prints are distinctly Tuscan in spirit: simple, pared-down interiors, sparse compositions and the warmest, most luminous colors you could possibly find.

These Tuscan art prints look best on a rough stone wall; or try hanging them on walls painted in deep, glowing colors. Create simple surroundings for an authentic Tuscany look - earthenware or terracotta dishes, heavy unbleached linen, and unpainted wooden furniture is really all you need.

There's more, of course: check out these Italian art prints of the Good Life, Tuscan edition.

These are inexpensive and very effective prints of Tuscany fine art - 'portraits' of earthenware bowls filled with mouthwatering fruit, flowers in deep, burning colors, and artfully arranged Tuscan vegetables fresh from the garden. Artists include

  • Albena Hristova, a Bulgarian native who lives and paints in Southern California (where the light is quite similar to that of Tuscany!),
  • Dennis Carney, who captured the lavish setting of elegant Tuscan villas, surrounded by abundant gardens and olive groves, and
  • Pennsylvanian designer Pamela Gladding, who has a thing for grapes and flowers and all that nourishes the soul.

Villas, Hilltowns & Landscapes:
Tuscan Wall Art With A View

With its rolling hills, patchwork fields and vivid colors, Tuscany is a painter's heaven. Historic towns and an ancient, sophisticated culture, combined with a slow, enjoyable way of life - that's a heady mix for anyone with an artistic gene.

The Tuscan art print selection above includes works by:

  • Colorado-based, pastel artist Dennis Rhoades,
  • Liz Jardine, who produces elegant, mixed-media Tuscan art prints,
  • New England-based painter Donna Harkins, whose subtle color sense shines in her watercolors and oils, and
  • Max Hayslette, a Pacific Northwest resident whose fascination with light is obvious in all his work (more of him below).

John Douglas, mixed media artist from the American Southwest, deserves his own Tuscan art print 'show' on this page - for his exquisitely composed and beautifully layered, highly decorative and romantic designs.

Poppies & Sunsets:
Tuscan Canvas Art In Glowing Colors

If you've had a look at the photographic Tuscan Prints, you have seen the amazing, deep warm glow of the Tuscan evening sun.

Tuscan sunsets tempt scores of painters to stray south of the kitsch border. (If you don't believe me, go have a look around a few Florence tourist shops!)

The high-color approach works best in abstract Tuscany art prints, for example German illustrator/painter Karl Heinz Gross's gorgeous watercolors (above); the more realistic a painting strives to be, the less convincing orange sunsets usually turn out.

So, with respect to the selection above - you be the judge! (I left two non-orange Tuscan art prints in there for a bit of relief :-)

Guido Borelli's Italian fine art prints are widely known for their genuine exuberance and charm. The painter lives in Turin (Northern Italy); here's a selection of Borelli's vivid, detailed Tuscany fine art posters.

And finally: Tuscan theme posters and Tuscan canvas art for a colorful, incredibly nostalgic retro Tuscany look on your walls:
