Big Wild Amazon

This month AMAZON decided to enter the fine art business. Here is their link, it’s kind of hard to find because search engines tend to send you to their fine art supplies instead of artwork… http://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=6685269011 .  Their fine art website is similar to ARTNET.com, GALLERYTODAY.com, or ART.com among others.  They have mostly modestly priced prints by known artists but also a Rockwell for about $4 Million so go figure – doesn’t seem like they have exactly identified their core audience. In any case, soon AMAZON will do everything from pick up your garbage to take care of your children to run nukes and fight wars.  They are well on their way to becoming not only the world’s biggest but the ONLY Corporate entity once they vanquish all competition.  Not sure if their fine art site will be self-sustaining but I imagine it will be well subsidized by their other business.  Selling art on the web just keeps getting more diffused.
