May 26, 2006, Newsletter Issue #38: Buying Fine Art Through Online Auctions

Tip of the Week

Ensuring the quality of fine art is very difficult. The art reproduction industry is very large, and even prominent museums occasionally purchase fake paintings by mistake. If you are looking to buy fine art reproductions, then most online auction sites will suit your needs.

Many quality reproductions of fine art, especially oil paintings, are produced overseas and available in the America market via online auction sites. Make sure that the quality of the work has not suffered during its trip to the USA. If you want to buy genuine fine art, then your best bet is to stick to the auctions sites of older, well known auction houses, such as Sotheby's and Christie's who now offer their own auctions online.
