Amazon opens art marketplace with works of over 4,500 artists

Amazon hopes to demystify the world of fine art, it said

Amazon has launched Amazon Art, a marketplace that includes more than 40,000 works of art by the likes of Norman Rockwell and Claude Monet from over 150 galleries and dealers.

The store includes the works of more than 4,500 artists and is one of the largest online collections of original and limited edition artwork for purchase directly from galleries and dealers, according to Amazon. The Amazon Art store demystifies the world of art, it said.

On Amazon Art users can find Andy Warhol's "Sachiko" for US$45,000, historic artwork from Monet including "L'Enfant a la tasse, portrait de Jean Monet" for $1.45 million, and works from iconic artists such as Rockwell's "Willie Gillis: Package from Home" for $4.85 million.

Users can choose between main departments such as drawing and ink, mixed media, painting, prints and photography, and narrow search results by using filters such as subject, style, color, size, price and gallery.

The list of partners includes Paddle8 in New York, Holden Luntz in Miami, McLoughlin Gallery and Modernbook in San Francisco, and Catherine Person Gallery in Seattle. Amazon has also partnered with galleries located in the UK, the Netherlands and Canada, it said.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
