Photographic wall art is available online at art and home decor websites, such as Artful Home, Fine Art America, Imagekind, Art.com and AllPosters.com. The websites sell both classic photography from famous artists and contemporary artwork from freelance professionals who want to reach a broader customer base.
Art stores commonly offer color, black-and-white, sepia, vintage and tinted photography. Shopping online allows buyers to filter large databases to find specific categories, such as food, animals, plant life, architecture and landscapes. Many websites offer artist profiles and detailed art descriptions that explain the techniques behind different types of artwork, such as motion, high-speed and close-up photography. Customers have the option to pay for frames and mats, and depending on the print, products are often available in diverse sizes, ranging from 5 inches by 8 inches to 40 inches by 60 inches.
In support of independent professionals, websites such as Imagekind and Fine Art America also function as artist communities, allowing individuals to upload their work and have all products framed and shipped to customers by the company. Similarly, Artful Home provides curated collections from talented North American artists, and shoppers can search by the artists’ geographic region to find works by independent professionals in their areas.
