Many people think that landscape art is the most quintessential kind of art. After all, landscape is universal: Everyone understands and appreciates a long view, so it's an easy choice for a buyer. People love to look at a beautiful vista and in that sense, buying a landscape is like buying a spectacular view. Not only that, but a landscape might work in any type of house or setting. Whether it's a seascape, cityscape, or moonscape; glacial, jungle, or mountaintop; intimate, aerial, or panoramic, a landscape is a natural, appealing choice for most art buyers.
Like it or not, many people buy art to match their décor. This might explain, at least in part, why abstract art sells so well. Because if you put an abstract art on a wall it might "read" simply as a colour, texture, or shape, this style appeals widely to those who want to create a unified "look" in their home decoration. Also, since abstraction usually has a nonrepresentational or symbolic approach, the viewer is free to interpret and ascribe meaning, and this freedom is another reason why abstract art sells.
Figures and Nudes
There is a frisson of connection when a viewer looks at an art of another person. Portraits or studies, abstract or impressionistic, people will always enjoy looking at other people. Although the trend is shifting towards clothed rather than unclothed figures, there is still (and probably always will be) a market for nudes.
