Best websites for aspiring art collectors

Three websites for art lovers and artists

Artnet.com is a “major resource for people looking to collect art.” The site compiles images from galleries around the world and makes their inventories available to view. Its “user-friendly” auction system includes estimates of works’ values, so budding collectors can learn about price points.

Oneartworld.com provides contemporary auction analysis and trends from the major auction houses—Christie’s, Sotheby’s, and Phillips de Pury & Co. Since launching in 2006, the site has amassed a database of thousands of galleries, artists, and shows across the globe.

Fineartadoption.net connects collectors with artists. Visitors can contact a work’s creator directly and arrange to “adopt” the work (that is, acquire it without purchase). The concept was created to “encourage collection and stewardship.”
