Artworks should be accessible to everyone, not just the select few, so we’ve curated a list of museum pieces that will go perfectly with your home decor. You don’t have to be an avid collector of expensive art to enjoy some of the best artworks by the masters.
Art doesn’t have to be expensive to be beautiful. All art requires is your emotional connection to the piece. So, selecting decor for your home can be a personal process. As Cezanne says, “A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.”
The Canvas Art Factory has a wide collection of museum pieces that will add beauty to your walls. Select your favourite piece by Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, and more!
Almond Blossoms Vincent van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh painted Almond Blossoms for his newly born nephew, named after the artist and uncle. Of the painting, van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo, "My work was going well, the last canvas of branches in blossom - you will see that it is perhaps the best, the most patiently worked thing I had done, painted with calm and with greater firmness of touch. And the next day, down like a brute." Almond Blossoms is wonderful not only for a child’s bedroom but can also be accommodating in living rooms and dining areas. It inspires peace and beauty. It’s one of the more popular paintings of van Gogh’s. Bring it into your home.
Claude Monet Water Lilies
Claude Monet painted the Water Lilies about 250 times. He would often sit in his garden in Giverny and ruminate on nature’s beauty. Monet uses all the colours possibly found in nature, from the blueish-purple water to soft greens and dreamy pinks. With so many pieces painted and scattered around the world, you can now bring into your home your own water lily creation with The Canvas Art Factory.
Starry Night Vincent van Gogh
You don’t have to go all the way to New York City’s MOMA to catch sight of Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night. The swirls in the sky seem unreal, the amber light of the stars and moon are mesmerising. It’s a piece suited to hang from bedroom walls or walls over couches, inspiring deep imagination and beauty in our everyday lives. Starry Night is a favourite in our Impressionist Collection and one of van Gogh’s most recognisable artworks.

Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer
From the Dutch Golden Age, there comes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring. Now known as a film and book, the original girl was a simple model who adorned an oriental headdress and a bulbous-sized pearl earring for Vermeer to study in paint. Because of this, the model wasn’t intended to be as famous as she is today. Girl with a Pearl Earring will give life to any reading room, sitting room, or study area.
The Night Watch Rembrandt
The Night Watch is a dark, brooding scene filled with armed guardsmen and men of honour. Rembrandt’s most famous painting inspires mystery and a possible murder plot. For a painting filled with as much mystery as any crime film, it is sure to liven up your living room, gaming room, or theatre room.
Lady with Ermine by Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci’s artworks have long been studied by art scholars and historians and are among the most famous artworks in the Western world. Just say the name The Last Supper and The Mona Lisa and you’ll already have the painting in mind. His Lady with Ermine was painted in simplicity and purity in mind. The ermine, a small fluffy creature positioned in front of the model’s stomach, symbolises purity but also stands for her secret lover, Ludovic Sforza. Da Vinci’s painting is filled with as much intrigue, secrets, and lies as a Shakespeare play and we recommend hanging it in your sitting room, library, or study room.
The Lady of Shalott by John William Waterhouse
You can bring home one of the most tragic figures in Arthurian legends, The Lady of Shalott by John William Waterhouse. The painting was inspired by a poem of the same name and depicts the titular character sailing down a river, looking for her love, Sir Lancelot. the rich colours of the canvas print really stand out here, from the Lady’s burning red hair to the colourful tapestry she worked so hard on. It will wonderfully brighten up your home.
