Art Museums

While art galleries and museums sometimes exhibit the same artists, art museums tend to be much more limited in scope in terms of the type of art that make it into a permanent collection. For many years, there was debate as to whether photography was even an artform. That's obviously a silly argument to make in the 21st century but the point here is don't expect to see much if any photography in most art museums. Classic art museums typically focus on European paintings and the closest thing you'll find to landscapes is the Hudson River School of art paintings from the likes of Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Cole. For the museums that do feature photography, even "modern art" museums are more likely to focus on crusty old prints from deceased 20th century black and white photographers than living photographers who photograph in color. There is almost no color landscape photography represented in art museums much less from living artists.

If your goal is to buy artwork then note that it's nearly impossible to buy artwork from a museum collection unless you're extremely wealthy and can strike a private deal with the owner or organization. Many museum collections are owned or were donated from billionaires such as Eli Broad and the Getty Family. Fortunately there are much easier ways to acquire fine art that don't involve being a billionaire or hiring an attorney.

Where can I buy museum-quality artwork without all the hassles?

How can I purchase your fine art photography prints?

Browse the online photo galleries on this website and take note of the Photo ID# for each print you would like to buy. I'm usually available via phone or email from 8 am to 8 pm (PST), 7 days a week. I can also create a lightbox for you based on your needs. Once you have decided on which prints to purchase I will send you an online invoice that can be paid by credit card or PayPal.
