Amazon Will Sell Fine Art Online

27 Jul

From The Street, a report that Amazon is building an online fine art vending siteIt doesn’t sound like Amazon plans a self-listing, artist-driven site like Etsy, DailyPaintworks, or Lualla, etc. It sounds more like the e-commerce giant will be drawing its art inventory from established brick-and-mortar gallleries. It should be interesting to see how they fare in the online art world:

Amazon.com (AMZN_), which will report its latest quarterly earnings Thursday after the markets close, will soon be offering rare paintings, prints and other one-of-a kind fine art to discerning clients.

Yes, you read it correctly: AMZN will soon be revealing a new site with works of art from around 100 galleries around the U.S. This summer has seen the Colossus of e-Commerce hosting fancy receptions in major cities like New York, San Francisco and its home town of Seattle to make a splash about it.
