The little known artist.com was established in 2004 in Somerset, England with the objective of being an affordable, approachable window for artists that would otherwise struggle to have their work displayed.
All works on the site are 100% original paintings, unless otherwise stated, if an item is described as an original oil, that is exactly what you will get. We may from time to time add a lithograph, or a woodcut etc, but theses will be clearly marked as such.
If you have a query, email us and we will get back to you, extra photos can also be mailed if you require. We encourage you to make an offer for a work of art, but please bear in mind we price realistically, so sensible offers only please.
Thinking of selling a piece or art?
We can also offer assistance if you own a work that you wish to sell, or perhaps you just want to put some feelers out and test the market of a certain work or artist, contact us for more details. This site is totally user friendly. We have listed all on the site into subject so you may see a contemporary landscape next to a 19th cent landscape.
However if you wish to see all 19th cent works regardless of subject, use the search option and likewise for any date, listed artist, name, medium etc. - you get the idea I'm sure.
Adding your work
If you wish to add your work to the site email us, the rates are very affordable and we have a number of options available. E.g. one years membership, upto 30 paintings displayed until sold, for a maximum of one year, would cost £25.00 stirling, you set the price you want for the painting to which we add a 6% handling fee to cover our pay pal and banking charges claimable when work sells.
All transactions via this site are processed by Paypal.
As a buyer you can pay for your items using your debit card, credit card, bank account or PayPal balance.
You do not need to set up a Paypal account to make one off payments.

The Knitting Lesson
Scottish artist J P Downie began exhibiting 1885. Painted widely around Glasgow, and the Clyde in particular was a huge draw for inspiration.
The Knitting Lesson, signed and dated 1907 is a true example of a Scottish master at work, with his seemingly effortless use of color and light.
