Famous Masterpieces for every home

One of the biggest art phenomena to hit the US in recent times is the idea that anyone can own a Famous Masterpiece. Imagine having your own version of a Picasso or a Monet. The originals sell for millions, yet you could own an adaptation for a fraction of the cost.

The British Art Academy in Bath have brought the idea to England and is commissioning talented up and coming artists to create some of the world’s best loved works of art, making them available at affordable prices, to art lovers everywhere.

These pictures are not copies or fakes, they are adaptations of the original work. This means that although the artist works from the original painting, every picture is unique and individual. The artists who paint them are talented artists. This isn’t painting by numbers – only an extremely gifted craftsperson could mimic the style of the greats. It’s a representative adaptation of the original work, yet an original piece in its own right.

And as a genuine oil painted adaptation, these pictures have value. Over the years, the adaptations become collector’s pieces in their own right as the artists themselves become more established.

You can impress your friends. Unlike owning a print, which is flat, printed on glossy art paper and not really something a collector would own relish and love, these are oil paintings, beautiful collectable works of art with a sheen, colour, depth and texture, just like the real thing!

The British Art Academy opens at 35 Walcot Street, Bath on 5th December. The first exhibition includes classic fine art adaptations and will showcase the original work of upcoming local artists.


• Over the next couple of weeks, before the official opening, The British Art Academy will be running charity showings at the gallery, including a charity auction.

• Can you make the Mona Lisa smile? Our real live Mona Lisa will be in the gallery window on the week leading up to the gallery’s opening. Can you make her smile? If you can, you’ll be invited to the opening on December 5th to join us for a free glass of Champagne.

• The British Portrait Gallery exhibiting contemporary celebs portraits.


...We’re still recruiting artists, so if you would like to be considered as a British Art Academy artist, give Phil Berridge a call on 01225 480660.
