Art Sites II


"Commercial" Sites...

By this I mean sites such as absolutearts, Fine Art America, and similar.  As all art, they tend emphasize, more or less, contemporary.  Here are some links of five that I currently use.

(this is page 2...)

ArtQ.Net

"Online Art Gallery Premier online art galleries for artists and art lovers"...

This site has quite a nice first page, real art...



They offer "Browse By Medium"...
Painting Acrylic Pastel
Painting Oil Photography
Collage and Montage Watercolor
Drawing Other
Illustration Digital Art
Mixed Media Sculpture

"View Artist Blog"...
(I couldn't quite figure what I was getting, but they all seemed to run together on a main page, and what I say was non-english...)

A big problem seemed to be lack of image sizes better than medium-level thumbnails.  I had to look otherwise (e.g., online search) to get better pictures.

www.fine-art.com (d'art); "d'ART is a marketplace and community of fine artists and dealers."... peruse the offerings of over 4,000 artists from around the world.

This site shows a lot of "established" painters on the main page, and is heavy into advertising.  They have a somewhatwide search site...



The main page shows nicely if you allow flash (which I normally do not), and lists a "multi-level browsing..." menu set.  Individual artist pages also seem to use flash to show well.  It seemed  sometimes difficult to find artist info, without going separately to online search of an artist name.

Here is an example of searching for landscapes...




"Autumn colours"; Sergio Zampieri


"Autumn colours" Sergio Zampieri Original Paintings - US $690.00

A few others...


PicassoMio; "PICASSOMIO.com: Buy original fine art - paintings, sculptures,"...

There first page is sort of minimal, and they are heavy into contemporary, but they show some good paintings.



Here is my own page...



I thought I might as well put in some of my own stuff.


Here is some other PicassoMio...
