Amazon Art, Fine Art With One Click

Jeff Bezos is making news recently with his agreement to purchase The Washington Post, leaving journalists everywhere hoping this visionary can spur a reinvention of the failing newspaper industry. But what made the purchase possible was the continued growth and expansion of the world’s largest online retailer, Amazon. At every opportunity, Bezos seeks to enter and dominate new markets, and last week marked the entry of Amazon into the world of fine art. With a number of renowned galleries and respected artists participating on Amazon Art, it could spark another major success for Amazon. And let’s face it, there’s something compelling about being about to get your hands on a Hirst or Chagall with a single click.
