It’s starting to be just about that time when all we can think about is gift giving, and if you’re anything like us, sometimes a pair of socks or a good book doesn’t really cut it under the tree. We love giving art, weather it be something you made yourself, a cherished piece you’re passing along, or a print or original work, it’s a much more personal gift to give and get. That’s why we love Saatchi’s online shop, where you can browse through tons of original works and different sized prints by their network of online artists, neatly categorized by the artist their work is inspired by.
Say you want for example a Warhol, a Kandinsky, or a painting by Mark Rothko (lord knows we wouldn’t be able to afford the original just yet), the next best thing would be a print or original work by another artist heavily influenced by them for a fraction of the price – quite a modern way to shop for art if you ask us!
Right now we’re looking back at postwar American artists like Jackson Pollock, Kooning, and Rothko, all best known for being influential during the abstract impressionism period. We love the complex simplicity of the pieces below featured in Saatchi’s inspired by Rothko section, because they centre works akin to his late definitive ‘multiforms’ period.
Take a look at some of our top picks from the Rothko section below and shop Saatchi’s full collection here.
