Ecommerce giant Amazon has launched a new Amazon Art marketplace for fine art, drawings, prints, and photographs, with more than 40,000 works available to purchase.
This new store makes it easier than ever to buy precious, one-of-a-kind art and media. Certainly easier than browsing galleries in person until you find something for your wall. (Although that can be fun too.)
The marketplace includes works of art from more than 4,500 artists and more than 150 galleries and dealers. Some popular featured artists include Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Marc Chagall. Main sections include drawing & ink, mixed media, painting, photography, artists you know, pop art, under $200, and light.
“We are excited to bring one of the largest selections of fine art direct from galleries to our customers. Amazon Art gives galleries a way to bring their passion and expertise about the artists they represent to our millions of customers,” Peter Faricy, vice president of the Amazon Marketplace, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to bring the excitement and emotional connection of art to our customers.”
Pricing on the art is varied but leans expensive, with 502 works costing less than $99 and 2,522 works running more than $10,000. The most expensive piece in the collection is Helen Frankenthaler’s 1992 acrylic Adirondacks, which costs $975,000. Take a look at Adirondacks below.
