Because of the many types of maple tree, maple tree art are some of the most diverse plant images available to art audiences today. Works such as 'Talking to a Maple Tree' by Todd Telander and 'Maple Road' by Vasil reveal the diversity of these trees. Using different types of maples allow painters of maple tree art to explore different aspects of these trees. In particular, Japanese maples used in maple tree art display the complexity of their branches, as seen in 'Japanese Maple I' by Moises Levy. However, common maple trees are generally depicted for their rich colors, like in 'The Maples' by Peter Colbert.
Landscape art that features maple trees as their primary subject are typically rich in color and bear a dynamic quality that is frequently lacking in less diverse plant images. Because of this, maple tree art has captured the hearts and imaginations of artists and audiences around the world.
