Amazon recently launched 'Amazon Art,' though it does not sell the type of art that will go up on a dorm room wall -- these pieces are museum-worthy and cost thousands of dollars. Like a museum, these pieces are curated by type, including categories to click through like drawings, photography and mixed media.
The online fine art store provides access to over 40,000 pieces of art, some of them with a hefty price tag of a couple million dollars. The collection features works by iconic artists like Chuck Close and Monet, which is astonishing to think that they can now be so easily acquired online. This should certainly make it easier for avid art collectors to acquire artwork, since they can now be added to one's online shopping cart with the press of a button.
