About Italian Antique Paintings

Throughout the 17th and 18th century, Italian painters embraced the Baroque and Rococo artistic aesthetics. Painters like Guido Reni and later Canaletto brought scenes from religion, history, and mythology to life and now many of these Italian antique paintings are available right here on eBay. Italian antique paintings are generally from the 17th-19th centuries, and buyers are encouraged to ask about the condition of all art work, especially antique oil paintings, before buying. When buying an antique original painting, be sure to check out top-rated sellers first. They have strong reputations for customer service, and often offer free shipping with a purchase.
