Selling art online for new artists

New artists can find it difficult to start selling their art for many reasons . There are 2 options which I would recommend for anyone trying to sell their art .First of all artists should contact local and online galleries to showcase their work . Each gallery can offer something different so it is important to speak to a wide range of businesses.

Dance me to the End of Love sold for £121,250

Jack Vettriano’s Dance me to the End of Love has sold at auction for £121,250 . It was part of a collection of Scottish artwork including sought-after pieces by Peploe, Hunter which sold for a credit-crunch busting £3 million at auction yesterday.
The 150 lots in the Scottish Picture Sale went under the hammer at Sotheby’s in London.
The highest price paid at the sale was for the rare chance to own George Leslie Hunter’s Still Life with Tulips and Oranges which sold for £433,250.

Rare paintings restored at Trinity House

Two rare paintings are back on display at Trinity House maritime museum in Leith after essential conservation work.
The Trinity House collection includes four paintings by Sir Henry Raeburn. Most notable is a portrait of Admiral Duncan, who led the British fleet to victory against the Dutch at the Battle of Camperdown in 1797. This critical engagement in the Napoleonic wars made the admiral a national hero. Trinity House awarded him the Freedom of the Incorporation and commissioned Raeburn to paint his portrait for the walls of their headquarters.
