How to buy Art Paintings and Sculptures on Ebay

30Nov12

  We hope here to help you navigate through the twists and turns of buying art on eBay. This article may give you some keys to work better in finding the deal at a bid that is within your budget. 1.Narrowing your search- be specific with your keywords and prepare a list of alternate searches and words in finding the art you desire. For instance, the time period of the art finds it easier by using words like mid-century, 18th century, modern, WPA. Words like old, vintage, early, realism, surrealism, abstract, impressionist can be useful in fine tuning your search. If for instance you are looking for an American 1900’s original watercolor signed, use all the keys words underlined, same goes for any searches you may be after. If you know what price you are willing to spend, start in a low mid range price that is below the actual value of the piece. That will give you room for adjustment should the bids go up by other interested parties. There are always buyers who may use a feature called auto bid, because of which I have lost a few art works in the process, because their bid comes in at the last few seconds without warning. p you navigate through the twists and turns of buying art on eBay.
