So as i posted on another thread, my wife and I are hoping to become parents in 2018. It’s made me think that our house should look less like the rented house it was last year and more like the family home it’ll become this year. I’ve always loved Greek and Russian style ancient paintings and am thinking of buying a decent size painting (on wood) to take pride of place in our living room. It turns out these don’t come cheap but it’s not an everyday purchase so i don’t mind spending a bit on it. But if i’m going to spend a bit then i want a picture that is both good and meaningful.
Can anyone recommend their favourite pictures and or the artists name and maybe say a bit about what makes it special to you?
