SAN FRANCISCO, November 22, 2010 - AllPosters.co.uk, a division of Art.com Inc., the world's leading online
specialty provider of wall art, in collaboration with the French agency
Reunion des Musees Nationaux (RMN) and Art Resource, New York, today
announced the launch of its French Museum Collection. This new collection
provides unprecedented access to many of the world's most treasured original
works of art, housed in over 400 renowned European museums and private
collections, by bringing together in one place museum-approved images of
these masterpieces and making them available for the first time as unique,
high-quality giclee prints and canvas reproductions.
"A key element of our company's mission is to make art accessible to all,
and our new French Museum Collection is yet another way we're empowering
customers to discover some of the world's finest original artworks and hang
them on their own walls as high-quality reproductions," said Geoffroy Martin,
CEO of Art.com Inc. "What makes this collection particularly unique is that
it includes not just the familiar masterpieces one might see in the galleries
of famous museums like the Louvre and d'Orsay, but also thousands of artworks
never before seen publicly because they've been hidden in museum vaults or
AllPosters.co.uk's French Museum Collection includes over 100,000 works
of art, including paintings and drawings, as well as photographs of
antiquities, sculptures and historical objects. Over 10,000 artists are
represented, including famous painters such as Monet, Rembrandt and Renoir,
as well as lesser-known artists. The collection spans a wide range of art
schools, movements, cultures and mediums, ranging from Egyptian antiquities
to 20th century paintings. It includes not only celebrated masterpieces, but
in some cases, the never-before-seen sketches that inspired them, pulled
directly from the artist's notebook.
"We are pleased to enter into an agreement with Art.com Inc. which
greatly complements its present offering of fine art," said Jean-Paul
Bessieres of the photo agency of the RMN. "The French Museum Collection
contains a wide variety of masterpieces spanning many centuries, which are
now being made available for wall art."
Continued Martin, "The breadth, quality and uniqueness of this collection
ensure that it will have broad appeal around the world. For the art
enthusiast, designer or anyone looking to decorate a space,
AllPosters.co.uk's French Museum Collection offers a treasure trove of both
familiar masterpieces and hidden gems just waiting to be discovered."
