Feb. 25, 2008ARTNET ONLINE AUCTIONS GO LIVE
Art dealers have a new outlet for their wares with Artnet Online Auctions
, a long-planned service launched in beta on Feb. 18, 2008. The new auction platform went live with works by about 20 artists, ranging from Berenice Abbott
and Ilya Bolotowsky
to Wayne Thiebaud
and Andy Warhol
. On the first day, several of the more bargain-priced lots had garnered heated bidding. Most of the auctions run for a two-week period.
