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.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
