Amazon has announced the launch of an art marketplace, selling more than 40,000 works from over 150 galleries and dealers. The store focuses on high-end works, including originals and limited edition artwork, and hopes to bring work from gallery walls to customers’ homes.

Amazon Art features easy-to-use discovery tools to help open the art world to customers and offers detailed information about the works of art. It enables every customer the chance to enjoy a gallery experience and includes a wide selection.

Customers can browse unique works of art with a range of price points, including photographs from Clifford Ross starting at $200, popular fine art like Andy Warhol’s “Sachiko” for $45,000 and works from iconic artists such as Norman Rockwell’s “Willie Gillis: Package from Home” for $4.85 million.
