Paintings by genre
Art Gallery Paveikslai.lt features works by several hundred Lithuanian painters and graphic artists. The artworks are divided by technique (oil paintings, acrylic paintings, prints for sale, etc.) and several genres.
Variety of painting genres
Painting is one of the oldest and most popular art forms, dating back thousands of years. Over that time, many genres of painting have evolved. The most popular in our gallery are abstractions, landscapes and figurative works.
Abstract paintings are one of the newer genres of painting that have revolutionised the concept of art and given rise to contemporary art. In true pure abstraction, there are no clearly identifiable objects, figures or natural images. Artists in this genre use colour, shape, line and texture to convey emotions, ideas and feelings. Abstract art can range from minimalist to complex compositions. Abstract paintings only emerged at the beginning of the 20th century, a genre inspired by the French Impressionists who emphasised the importance of colour and light. Vasily Kandinsky and Kazimir Malevich are considered to be the pioneers of abstract painting. If you are interested in the abstract paintings in our gallery, you can browse our collection of abstractions here or use the filtering option on the left - we have some truly world-class abstractionist works!
