Buying high quality art prints online has become very popular in the last 10 years. Many collectors and investors choose modern art paintings because they are the cutting edge of art today. They reflect the energy of today's world and serve as barometers against the ever-changing art scene.
Whilst in most cases this is an enjoyable experience and investing in art has been proven to usually generate a profit – there are also pitfalls that you need to be aware of. Here I will list some of them:

1. Always buy from a seller who accepts returns and is based in the same country you! In some cases when you receive the artwork is purchased, it will look different in reality than it looks on screen. You might be disappointed, so you should always have the option to restore it.
2. Do not buy an un-stretched canvas posted to you in a roll. They may appear to be cheaper initially but when you manage to find the service stretches and been paid for it you will realize that it costs you almost the same as the painting sold in stretched canvas.
3. Buying a painting of websites that offer you a clear picture of the artwork and photos is also detailed (close-up) will ensure that you purchase the actual painting and not just 'image'. Some websites will sell the pictures and the only artist will paint a painting after it was purchased.
