Pablo Picasso once said: “Love is the greatest refreshment in life,” and it’s hard to disagree with him.
Love is one of the most prevalent themes in art, no matter the medium. Valentine’s Day offers the perfect excuse to admire art’s unique ability to evoke emotions and the complexities of love. There is a reason we send each other messages decorated with hearts every February 14—even the simplest use of colors and shapes can let someone know they are loved.
Hearts are just the beginning when it comes to depictions of love in art. Complex images transcribed onto a canvas, taken from imagination or real life, can express love better than clumsy words or a box of chocolates ever could.
If you’re seeking a little romance or a reminder of what love looks like, check out these representations of love by Park West Gallery artists. Let your heart swell with inspiration as these artworks show the infinite ways we all experience love in its many forms.
