It's like Etsy for fine art. Zatista is an online source that connects sellers (either artists or galleries) with web-saavy collectors. Their inventory includes lots of affordable original artworks, as well as some higher-end pieces in the mix.

We found the site somewhat difficult to navigate. Searching by media works well, but we couldn't locate a subject search (i.e. portraits, landscapes) or a function that sorts pieces by price. It may be that the newly launched site is still working out its kinks. One helpful feature is an art explorer that saves your preferences and, like Netflix, offers suggestions targeted to your taste.
