I recently placed my first order with MisterArt.com and am absolutely astounded at the short amount of time it took to reach me. It was even delivered a day earlier than the shipping carrier's website said it would be! Everything was packed nicely, with masking tape around the tops of all liquids. WOW! I have ordered from one of your competitors in the past - and am here to tell you I will never utilize their services again. I am shocked at the differences between you and that other company - you are in a completely different category as there is NO competition! I wanted to thank you for doing such a terrific job. I am ecstatic with every item I ordered and cannot wait to order again from you. Your prices are fabulous, the product info is terrific, confirmation/update emails are informative without being overwhelming, your products are high quality and the shipping is beyond fast. Thank you for truly servicing your customers - from the fine artist to the craft hobbyist. You've earned a long-term customer!

Styles & Periods

International Gothic

The art of Italy and its northern contemporaries came together in 1400, and the combined artistic traditions became a dominant style of Gothic Art called the Beautiful, or International Style. Though sculpture certainly saw the effects of the movement, painting dominated. Much of the grandeur that was present in earlier works was replaced by a subdued, elegant aesthetic. This refined style portrays stunning costumes, borrowed from the shared influence of the Byzantines. A growing interest in realism is evident in many works of the International Gothic period, and some details are painted in such a realistic manner as to suggest that they were observed from life. The concentration of detail on large panels was unprecedented and made the work seem like enlarged miniatures at times. Finally, the International Style is characterized by an assigning of symbolism to objects represented within the canvases. Lilies stood for Mary’s virginity, and architectural cues spoke to Old and New Testaments. The Adoration of the Magi, completed by Gentile da Fabriano in 1423, is considered to be the pinnacle of International Gothic achievement, and is seen by some as the style's last definitive breath before it was absorbed by the oncoming Early Renaissance.

Very attractive product: well designed. Backing is exact fit. Frame brightens area it is placed in. Price is GREAT!

This pen is an essential part of sketching I do for design clients. It has the perfect tip, almost brush-like, and the water color ink doesn’t react with the art markers I use with it. Also the price at Mister Art is the best!

I love these crayons; they are great for mirror or window art, and blend very well together.
