All About Easels

The easel has been around since ancient times. Man’s need for a flat surface on which to draw began when cavemen used the walls of their caves to draw their world and display it to others. Centuries later, clay tablets depicting the life and times of ancient Egypt were discovered in King Tut’s tomb.

The first clear picture of the three-legged structure that we know today as an easel is shown holding a picture tied to it. This picture is believed to be from the first century. The easel had already become established as an artist’s tool.

Easels are just as important to artists today. The modern world has adopted the use of an easel for display purposes as well. Works of art are displayed to the public using a decorative easel as a back drop to completed artwork or photography. The easel stand forms a tripod used in business as a display for company announcements, to direct traffic in the building or to provide a holder for brochures, business cards and other printed materials.

Easel stands even help teachers and presenters to display information in a classroom or board room.

The easel holds a canvas or paper to enable the painter or sketcher to see his work from an upright position. This simple yet elegant device aids the artist in getting close access to his work and then allowing him to step back and observe the result from a distance to better see the whole picture. The inventor of the easel decided he would rather stand to paint or draw to allow his creative juices to flow. An artist can also see what others see when they observe his artwork.

There are all types of models running the gamut from small display tripods to large H frames. Children especially adore the small easel that sits on a table or desk or the floor model that stands alone. Take advantage of our seasonal sales and unleash your inner artiste!
