"The Top 10 Oil Paintings of 2023 seamlessly marry nature's splendor with the intricacies of human connections. In our pursuit of deeper bonds, a collective yearning for community, travel, and enriching experiences emerges.”
“Relationships are also key in the Top 10 list: examine the sadness in ‘To The Highest Bidder’ and the passion and intensity of Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’. We know that relationships and self-reflection have been examined over the past year, and these artworks reflect that continued assessment,” he said.
