artline ® was established as a comprehensive and educational index of the finest dealers and artists.
To assure quality art and knowledgeable dealers, known for integrity, expertise, and holdings of the world's finest works from old masters to emerging artists, artline ® was formed from the combined membership of seven important art dealers associations: Art Dealers Association of America, Art Dealers Association of Greater Washington, Association of International Photography Art Dealers, Chicago Art Dealers Association, Fine Arts Dealers Association, International Fine Print Dealers Association, and the Society of London Art Dealers. A list of all dealers is included on the site. sorted geographically. Individual dealers, their backgrounds and gallery histories are featured on a regular basis.
Artists represented by these dealers have their own pages on artline ®. Artist's pages include images of the artists' work with direct links to their pages on their dealers' sites. The artline ®. artists' pages incorporate: a picture of the artist, statement, essay/monograph, biography, CV, reviews, bibliography, videos and a link to the artists' website or foundation.
artline ® has a section with tips on collecting, which includes essays on collecting from artists, art dealers/art galleries, auctions, a brief history of collecting, a look at what other's have collected. plus articles on "what's in?"
