If you’re planning on buying a special gift for Valentine's Day, then a beautiful piece of art might just be what you’re looking for. Here are 5 prints perfect for Valentine's Day that we’ve handpicked from our collection of art prints, inspired by the V&A.
Valentine’s Day is the first occasion of the year when we can show our loved ones how much they mean to us. Some prefer a card, flowers, or an extravagant gift, but if you’re looking for something truly special, then a piece of art is worth adding to your wish list.
We’ve handpicked 5 prints from our collection of art prints, created in collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum, that would be perfect Valentine's Day gifts. This range celebrates the museum's rich archive, showcasing an array of works, from William Morris patterns to Japanese woodblock prints. Every piece of art is printed using Epson’s first 12-colour printer, straight onto 315 GSM fine art paper.
5 Art Prints Perfect For Valentine's Day
Valentine Wall Art For The Nature Lover
If your partner loves nature, then our Birds and Botany art prints might make the perfect present. These detailed illustrations are incredibly vibrant and work as standalone pieces or as part of a set. Featuring countless different types of birds and nature, this unique piece of art is inspired by Ernst Haeckel, a famous scientist and professor from the 20th Century, whose stunning designs are known for bridging the gap between science and art.
‘Forked-tailed Flycatcher’ and ‘Mangrove Hummingbird’ (pictured below) are part of our Birds and Botany Collection with the V&A and pair perfectly with other prints in this range, which feature plants, birds, and other creatures in striking scenery.
Valentine Wall Art For The Star Gazer
For the astronomers out there, our ‘Lunar Stereographs I’ print is destined to re-inspire their love of space. This print is a reinterpretation of the original photographs, captured by Warren De La Rue back in the 1850s, who was one of the first astronomer-photographers. This print is perfect on its own or works well as a set with two other prints from our Constellations Collection.
Valentine Wall Art For The Romantic
If you’re feeling particularly romantic, then the William Morris Alphabet Collection might make the perfect Valentine's present. William Morris remains one of the great figures of the 19th century, a Renaissance man and a talented Victorian.
As a craftsman, artist, printer, writer and businessman, Morris worked closely with the V&A as an advisor to their collection of historical textiles and interior design, most notably, the Green Dining Room, now known as the Morris Room. This collection contains every letter of the alphabet, set against backdrops of famous William Morris patterns. Why not buy your partner's initials, or frame both of yours together?
Valentine Wall Art For The Book Lover
Created by Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland is a household name that is famous across the world. Our collection of Alice in Wonderland prints have been recreated from the original illustrations in the book, created by cartoonist and artist, Sir John Tenniel (1820–1914), who brought Lewis Carrol’s incredible story to life.
Our design team have creatively added splashes of colour and playful quotes from the story, making these prints truly unique. Alice and Flamingo is one of our most popular pieces from this collection and pairs well with all the other collection pieces – particularly the portraits of the rabbit and the mad hatter!
Valentine Wall Art For The Culture Enthusiast
Art is vividly different across the world and often reflects the culture of the country it originates from. For those that have an interest in different cultures, our print of ‘Spring Below A Mountain’ is a beautiful portrayal of Japanese culture.
Created as part of the reproductions of the V&A archives, this print is part of our Japanese Artwork Collection. Japanese artwork has been collected by the V&A since 1852 and and the museum's collection includes a vast archive of colourful woodblock prints created by this genre's greatest and most influential artists, such as Utagawa Hiroshige I and Hiroshige II.
This print is striking as a standalone illustration and is perfect for beautiful spots in your home, such as in your living room, study or kitchen. If you want to pair it with another illustration, there are many in this collection that make a great companion.
What type of art would your partner love? Nature, photography, design, or something else? Whatever type of art you both enjoy, our collection of unique prints means you’re bound to find something perfect for your partner this Valentine’s Day.
