Tips for Searching the Canvas Oil Painting
Reproduction Art of Masterpiece Paintings Gallery

Your searches for a specific oil painting reproduction art work can include wildcards, booleans and three types of phrase search. You can search by painter, title, theme, year, technique and/or keyword.

By default, we will try to locate pages on our web site which have exact matches for all of the words entered in your search query.

If that fails, we will try to locate pages of canvas oil painting reproductions art which contain any words in your search query. If that happens a short message is displayed at the top of the search results (and below advertisements) indicating this has been done. 

In addition, there are five ways to modify the default search behavior:

1) Phrase Search;
2) + and - qualifiers;
3) *wildcard
4) ?wildcard
5) Boolean Search

Phrase Search

Our search engine supports three types of phrase searches:

1) exact match; 2) near match; and 3) far match.

To match an exact phrase, use
quotes around the phrase.
Example:
free search engine

To match a near (within a couple of words) phrase, use
square brackets around the words.
Example:
[canvas oil painting art reproduction]

To match a far (within several words) phrase, use braces around the words.
Example:
{free search engine}

+ and - qualifiers
If you prepend a word with
+ that word is required to be on the page.
If you prepend a word with
- that word is required to not be on the page.
Example:
+impressionist painting -Monet

* wildcard
If a query word ends with a * all words on a page which start the same way as that query word will match.
Example: Sunflowers
* 

? wildcard
If a query word contains a ? any character will match that position.
Example: angel
? (angels will also match)

Boolean Search
You can use the three following boolean operators in your search: AND, OR, NOT.

These operators MUST be in capital letters.
Example: (contact AND us) OR (about AND us)

All of these techniques can be combined: +alway* -ne??r*
