Art as Soft Furnishings - Fine Art Decorative Pillows - Beautiful!What a great way to celebrate a favorite painting - buy a throw pillow that's illustrated by it. I don't know about you, but I certainly can't afford a Klimt, Van Gogh or Picasso and yet I can now enjoy having one of them (or many other great artists) in my home. Art inspired throw pillows are simply gorgeous creations based on the works of masters like Monet, Turner, Degas and more.
I've arranged the artists featured in alphabetical order so that you can find your favorite quickly and I must apologize if your favorite artist isn't featured, unfortunately I couldn't find throw pillows featuring all of them.
These throw pillows are a great quality throw pillow and are made by American MoJo from 100% A Grade woven cotton. They are great for anyone who appreciates art, but they'd make an especially cool gift for anyone graduating Art School.
Sandro Botticelli Throw PillowsBotticelli was a famous Italian painter from the Early Renaissance period and his most famous painting would have to be (in my opinion anyway) the Birth of Venus - the second throw pillow here actually captures part of that painting in detail.
Gustave Caillebotte Throw PillowCaillebotte was a French painter who is associated with the Impressionists although if you look at his paintings you'll see he actually paints in a more realistic style than other Impressionists. I personally love his Paris Street, Rainy Day which is depicted on the throw pillow below, I'm no art expert, but to me it seems to embrace realism and vintage style.

Edgar Degas Throw PillowsWhenever I think of Degas I think of ballet dancers and with very good reason - over 50% of his works were of ballet dancers!
Philip Leslie Hale Throw PillowPhilip Leslie Hale was an American impressionist painter, I must admit I hadn't heard of him until recently, but his image of The Crimson Rambler that's depicted on the throw pillow below is gorgeous and I think the throw pillow will make a great gift idea for my mother.

Fernand Khnopff Throw PillowKhnopff was a Belgian symbolist painter he has some interesting paintings - the Caress comes to mind, but the only painting of his that I could find on a throw pillow is the one below which on a personal level I find very depressing.
Fernand Khnopff - The silver crown Tondo.
Gustav Klimt Throw PillowsI've featured the Kiss by Gustav Klimt here because it was the first of his paintings I became aware of. I had heard of his name and I knew he was an artist, but it wasn't until I was in my 40s and watching a movie that featured The Kiss that I actually realized was one of his pictures. I am sure I have probably seen his work before, but not been aware of it.
Edouard Manet Throw PillowsA French painter Manet is credited with being one of the pivotal painters who led the transition from Realism to Impressionism.
Claude Monet Throw PillowsMonet is one of my husband's favorite artists and one of the first pictures we brought as a married couple was a print of Monet's Water Lilies.
Alphonse Mucha Throw PillowsMucha was a Czech Art Nouveau painter who I've only recently 'discovered' and I must say that I love his style especially when it comes to some of the art he produced for advertisements. I had been a fan of a couple of these before I realized that they were by Mucha!
Pablo Picasso Throw PillowsDoes Picasso need an introduction? I don't think I know anyone who hasn't heard of this artist who founded the Cubist movement.
