Buying and selling paintings online have now become a common phenomena. People prefer using social networking sites as a way to buy and sell paintings, rather than physically going to art galleries. In the United States of America $250 million of online art revenue was produced in the year 2012.
Buying art online is pretty different as compared to buying any other electronic device such as a TV or a smart phone. While buying electronic devices, a person can go to the store and physically check out the product however that is not the case with buying art online. Buying an original artwork is pretty unique in its own way. If a person wants to go and see the art work for real, they would have to go and find out the location of the artist and visit them.
