While you have been all sorts of mesmerized by Jeff Bezos purchasing the Washington Post, he was busy setting up Amazon Art. I have to say, the ability for us to buy Picasso’s and Rockwell’s online is titillating.

A day after the news that Amazon’s founder and chief executive, Jeff Bezos, is buying The Washington Post, his company officially entered another cultural arena: art. On Tuesday, the online retailer announced the start of Amazon Art, where customers can buy original and limited-edition art from more than 150 dealers and 4,500 artists, ranging in price from a $10 screen print by the up-and-comer Ryan Humphrey to a  $4.85 million painting by Norman Rockwell.
