The Oil Painting Reproduction Process

Oil painting reproductions are paintings that have been created by copying in oil paints any original oil painting.

Oil painting reproductions are different from the original oil painting and are often collected by museums when the original has been damaged or is considered too valuable to keep on display. Artists often reproduce originals of their painting. The Scream by Edward Munch has been reproduced multiple times.
