Sites for buying paintings

Saatchi-gallery.co.uk features works ranging from “$16 portraits to $5,000 expressionist paintings,” by more than 65,000 artists. Artists can set up their own home pages on the site, which buyers may then browse. “The artists post images of everything from rudimentary sketches of nudes to wall-size paintings by gallery veterans.”

Boundlessgallery.com has a roster of 2,000 artists, and its search function lets users pick the “desired price range, size, color scheme, and subject matter.” Prices range from $10 to more than $1,000,000.

Ha.com, the Web site of Dallas-based Heritage Auction Galleries, proves that “not all online art is new.” A venerable piece from an artist such as colonial portraitist Charles Willson Peale, for instance, may sell for up to $64,000. Source: The Wall Street Journal
