Amazon Introduces "Amazon Art"

Amazon.com, Inc. today announced the launch of Amazon Art.

Amazon Art is launched with 40,000 works of fine art from more than 4,500 artists. The store is one of the largest online collections of original and limited edition artwork for purchase directly from over 150 galleries and dealers


Amazon Art offers artworks from galleries of all sizes from across the US and includes galleries located in the UK, the Netherlands and Canada.
Customers can explore fine art from galleries of all sizes, including Paddle8 in New York, Holden Luntz in Miami, McLoughlin Gallery in San Francisco, Modernbook in San Francisco and Catherine Person Gallery in Seattle.

“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,” said Peter Faricy, vice president for the Amazon Marketplace. “We’re thrilled to bring the excitement and emotional connection of art to our customers.”

“Our passion is to make original art accessible to everyone. When we first heard the vision for Amazon Art, we knew immediately it was a great fit,” said Jodie and Joshua Steen, Founders of LusterNYC, located in Brooklyn, NY. “I think we’ll begin to see a whole new breed of art collector, and that’s good for everyone—the galleries, artists, and customers.”


Amazon Art provides customers with high quality images and detailed information about the artwork all in one place. Customers can learn about the work of art, the artist, the provenance and exhibition history and browse additional artworks from the artist or gallery.
 For example, artist Antoine Rose from Emmanuel Fremin Gallery provides a detailed description for customers interested in his aerial photography. The artwork is described as a “…panorama captured from helicopter in a bird's eye view. The miniature-like representation of Hamptons beach transforms the natural aerial landscape into abstract painting and inscribes Rose's work in a minimalist artistic approach.”
When customers shop on Amazon Art, they can narrow search results to meet their tastes by using filters such as subject, style, color, size, price and gallery, enabling them to find favorite artists and discover new ones.
