The beauty of The Gallery of Lost Art by Tarte is its simplistic nature to accumulate lost and found pieces of art. Most of the pieces showcased at this gallery have been discarded by former artists, galleries and owners. The art is acquired by the gallery curator Jennifer Mundy. The best part of this gallery is that it is an interactive piece on the Internet, making it accessible to virtually anyone. With a few simple clicks of the mouse, one can view the abandoned work of Francis Bacon, Tracey Emin, Willem de Kooning, Christo and Jeanne-Claude.

The Gallery of Lost Art is a brillant idea bringing together the interactive world of the Internet and the art world. People can also find out the history behind the items they are viewing to give a more in depth perspective of the art.
