A really cool idea: art appreciation
using works by living artists as illustrations. There are also works of art
for sale, periodic exhibitions, and tons of information for anyone who wants to
learn more about art, starting from the question "Why is this art?" and "Why is it good?"
Subsequent pages cover such things as learning to develop taste
and how to display and care for your treasures
once you have taken them home, written in an
informative, nonthreatening style for beginners
. A sister site, Editions, covers fine art prints for
the less-well-heeled collector
with prices starting as low as $80US, and there's a good
for those who'd like to learn more through dead-tree
If you ever want to start a collection of something more enduring than Franklin Mint figurines or overpriced posters
or simply feel like getting into collecting art, but feel unease in a white room full of skinny people wearing black eating
wine and cheese, I thoroughly recommend this site.
