Online websites selling fine art are not new and nor are they particularly thin on the ground. So what do we hope to offer? Our aim is simple. We plan to engage, provoke interest and provide our online visitors with interesting things to look at, read and buy.
Our range of stock is broad and varied, spanning oil paintings, watercolours, prints and drawings together with fine book illustrations and cartoons from publications including Punch magazine. The majority of the works we offer are mounted in-house in conservation-grade boards. This helps to preserve the works and it enables you to have the work framed quickly and conveniently. Additionally, we carry a limited range of standard stock frames ideally suited to some of the smaller works we sell and we’re happy to frame your purchase (where appropriate) and dispatch it to you ready to hang. The majority of the art we sell dates from 1750-1950.
In addition to frequently adding to our stock range, we will publish regular articles and features which will highlight and explore different aspects of art history and commercial art practice. We’ll try not to be too scholarly, dry or overly serious. Art can be serious, of course; it can also be sad, joyous, disturbing and uplifting. In fact, art can be all the emotions you can imagine. And that is its beauty – its range and diversity. It is art’s multi-faceted nature that we will seek to reflect through the works we choose to show, offer for purchase and write about.
Finally, we will mount a series of temporary online exhibitions. These will be thematic, focussing on a particular artist, style, medium or subject matter. All the works in the temporary exhibitions (like all the works on the site) will be available to buy.
So that’s our offer. We’ll provide new stock and art-related articles every week augmented by varied temporary exhibitions. All you have to do is relax with your laptop or tablet, or sit back with your smart phone on the train and immerse yourself in what we hope is an interesting and engaging selection of art. If you choose to make a purchase, great (and thank you). If you’re buying in the UK, delivery is free (the price for delivery outside the UK is displayed at checkout) and we will ensure you receive the same excellent service we have been providing to online buyers worldwide for the last ten years. If there’s nothing here for you at the moment, then do visit us again – new stock will be added all the time.
Finally, we’d love to keep in touch. We’ll post updates on social media when new items appear on the site so do please follow us via the links on all the pages here. If social media is not your thing but you’d like to be kept updated then join our mailing list via the contact box at the bottom of our homepage. And if you have any questions about who we are and what we do please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
