Thinking of giving art for Christmas? Explore our Christmas gift guide

The Big Blue

Summer is well and truly here!

Are you stuck at home, having the holiday of a lifetime, or just back from a trip?

Treat yourself to an artistic getaway or keep that holiday mood going with this refreshing selection from Artsper.

Waves, beaches, swimming pools and isolated coves feature prominently in the work of many of today’s new generation of contemporary artists. It seems that painters love getting away from it all and immersing themselves in the great outdoors just as much as the rest of us.

Find a work that transports you with its shimmering blues and glistening sunshine and make it your own!
