Fine Art Websites with a Gallery Look and Feel

Fine art websites or artist websites should have a gallery look and feel. Unfortunately when browsing for artwork online, most art collectors discover that the internet is cluttered with really bad art websites. Artist and gallery websites are notorious for having poor design, disorganized layouts, confusing navigation, and horrible color choices. Way too often, images are too small and pixelated or they have not been optimized for efficient download times and make viewing art a slow and arduous process.

Browsing an artist or gallery website should be more like walking through a high-end gallery or art museum. In most cases, the design should be cleans and the background colors should not distract from the artwork itself.
