Edouard Manet,
A Bar at the Folies-Bergere, 1882

A Bar at the Folies-Bergere by Edouard Manet. Fine Art Reproduction by Fabulousmasterpieces.co.uk
Third place with 13,218 votes

A barmaid stands in front of a mirror, staring blankly out into the bar of the popular Paris nightclub the Folies-Bergère. In a clever twist, the viewer is put in the position of her customer as we see from the mirror's reflection that she is in fact serving a mysterious, top-hatted gentleman. The barmaid's enigmatic expression is as inscrutable as the Mona Lisa's while Manet's mastery of fast Impressionist-style brushwork makes it a technical masterpiece.

 Yours for just £600 with FREE delivery. Original dimensions: 96 cm x 130 cm

The Arnolfini Marriage, 1436
by Jan van Eyck

Van Eyck- The Arnolfini Marriage. Fine Art Oil Reproduction by Fabulousmasterpieces.co.uk
Fourth place with 11,298 votes
The picture is a dazzling example of van Eyck's mastery of perspective, complex use of symbolism and vivid palette. The conceit, and mystery, of the extra figures in the room, reflected in the convex mirror but unseen in the main image, add to the painting's fascination.

Yours for just £457 with FREE delivery. Size 82cm x 60cm, original dimensions.
