In modern mouse representations, mice are generally not depicted realistically. Whimsically creative mouse prints grant human-like qualities to their subject matter, as well as using a variety of settings and styles. However, the majority of these styles are fairly cartoonish in execution because of their subject. Works like 'Moon Dreamer' like Jennifer Nilsson and 'Mouse' by Wilma Sanchez are typical of modern mouse representations.
Among today's art consumers, mouse art is highly popular among younger audiences. Because of the popularity and whimsical appeal of modern mouse representations, these works are ideal for decorating a young child's room or nursery. However, for older audiences, there are also several fine art mouse paintings that are suitably mature, such as Vincent Van Gogh's 'Two Rats' and other creative mouse prints.
