With the explosion of broadband users increasing, the world of ecommerce has experienced a sharp boost and the online modern art market has hoped on the bandwagon too. The great thing about online modern art/contemporary art sales increasing is that there is more choice of quality modern art/contemporary art. You no longer have to go to the local art gallery and spend a fortune on a painting which is ridiculously expensive due to the overheads that bricks and mortar galleries have to pay on rent and other expenses. With traditional high street galleries you don't get your modern art delivered to your door, instead you have to try and find a way to fit that large 2metre by 1metre mural in your vehicle!
Because online art sales are increasing there is lots of choice and because the online galleries have much lower overheads/costs they can sell modern art/contemporary art at much lower prices, plus you get your modern art delivered to your door! Sometimes delivery is free delivery too!
However buying modern art online isn't all good news you do have to approach it with a spot of caution. Because of the fact that you can't see the modern art/contemporary art before you buy it you don't entirely know what's going to come in the mail when it arrives!
Here are our top 3 tips for what to look for in online modern art galleries so that you know the modern art that you are planning to buy is going to be of good quality when it arrives in the mail:
1. Only buy modern art from online modern art galleries that provide a minimum of 7 days money back guarantee. This will insure that if the modern art isn't what you expected or you don't like it in real life then you can send it back and get your money back. However! You must make sure that you return the painting in its original packaging and pay for postage. The painting must not be damaged when it arrives back at the gallery.
2. It is hard to gauge the true size of a modern art painting so it is helpful if the site has some type of scale measurement so that you can visually get an idea of how large it will look in the room its going to be in. An example would be if there's a photograph of a modern art painting hung above an average sized sofa or if there's a picture of the modern art painting next to a 6ft man. This will give you an idea of the scale of the modern art that you are planning to buy.
3. Only buy modern art from online modern art galleries that provide plenty of information about their exhibits for sale. If there is a lack of information about a particular piece of modern art then it is possible that something is wrong with it or that they are trying to hide something.
