"We are excited to bring one of the largest selections of fine art direct from galleries to our customers. Amazon Art gives galleries a way to bring their passion and expertise about the artists they represent to our millions of customers," said Peter Faricy, vice president for the Amazon Marketplace. "We're thrilled to bring the excitement and emotional connection of art to our customers."

Amazon says that the new store provides easy searching discoverability that enables smaller art galleries to get their collection seen by millions of people, which in turn will lead to higher sales numbers and will allow the small galleries to grow.
