is an art category that has become increasingly popular in recent years. These works are often collected by art enthusiasts because of their cultural and historical relevance in the art world. However, recently rustic art
has reemerged as a popular design choice among households and businesses.
This trend is often attributed to rustic art
often featuring domestic and whimsical prints
Many works of rustic art
are also folk illustrations
. Despite being within separate categories, these whimsical prints
bear many similarities and are often used as complementary decorative choices. Folk illustrations
like 'House with Flag' by Warren Kimble and 'Her Outhouse' by Kim Lewis are seen as characteristic of the works that cross the divide between these two categories and are seen as rustic folk art
while still being a part of the individual categories.
