NEW YORK CITY – Artnet.com released a new version of its renowned Fine Art Auctions Database, widely used for valuing fine art.
In its first major improvement in two years, the Database’s new features provide users with a graphical user interface, enhanced search criteria, greater ease in locating artist names, total number of results and search criteria visible on each page, the ability to conduct searches across multiple media, and easier navigation between result pages. The relaunch was the result of input from a wide range of heavy users over an extended period of time, who have also tested the enhanced research tool.
The database contains 12 years of auction records, more than two million lots and more than 176,000 artists. Illustrated and ranging from Old Masters to Contemporary, database customers include auction houses, museums, art dealers, art collectors, educational institutions and other art professionals.
“Experienced users will find these improvements can streamline their searches,” says Karen Amiel, vice president of content development and promotions, who oversaw the project. “New users will find the choosing of search parameters to be much more intuitive.”
