Buying art online

I'm moving a piece of art from one room to another and want to replace it. Haven't really got time to go looking round galleries so I was hoping to source something online.

Has anyone done this and can you recommend any sites?

Anyone? No one?

Bumping for you. I'm looking for something myself but don't have a clue where to start.

I also don't have a lot to spend....

Etsy is worth a look! My husband is an artist and sells some work through there.

Thanks Magpie, will take a look. I'm sure there are some great regional galleries online but not sure how to search for them.

Another bump as I'm interested in this too. Hadn't thought of Etsy, but that's a great idea magpie.

I'm rubbish at picking art for walls etc. But I found which has loads of different categories.

Not went through them all yet or ordered anything from them yet but might be a good starting point?

(I was looking at kids books illustrations for nursery so prints mainly)

My partner and I run a small business where we sell affordable originally art mainly from 1800-1945. Feels a bit pushy to give the name of the site here, but will happily give the details if you want to PM me.

'Original art' is what I meant!

I've been wondering about this too- I am looking for portraits of women for my house and there doesn't seem to be decent access to resources. I promise I won't report you if you put the website on here! Saatchi also does a good website but depends on your budget.

Saatchi v good for choice. You can buy cheap prints or originals for a bit more.

Also, artunderamonkey are ok.

Some of the stuff on artunderamonkey is a bit ropey though!

MarianneSolong Mon 23-Mar-15 12:48:32

Okay. Here's the site.

I have bought a few items from degree art, as the name implies it is university students but I have some interesting pieces and I feel like I am supporting young talent.

Thanks everyone, will take a look at those sites!
