In a crowded field, Artsy stands out from other online art sales platforms. The website lives up to its ambition to make art accessible, with a vast database of images, a strong editorial presence, and an impressive network of partnerships with international galleries and museums – a resource that demystifies and promotes collecting, in other words, but also aims to encourage the conversation around it. Carter Cleveland dreamt up Artsy while studying computer science at Princeton, when he realised there was no comprehensive online resource for viewing art; it now lists more than 500,000 works for sale around the world.
