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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
