This is, of course, a question.
On the one hand, flickering and an abundance of additional photographs distract from the actual work.
On the other hand, a painting is, in a sense, an object, and here it is already important what surface, scale in the interior, there is a frame or not, and there are many other details. How to show all this in order to support the viewer in his intention to purchase a painting?
During the 15 years of our gallery's existence in an old, poorly adapted space in the center of Prague, it seems to me that we have learned to "show" paintings. But online?
So,you have to think.
Here are some of the presentation photos to share with you:
1. Painting in the interior, next to a chair, wardrobe or table.
2. Framed painting, if any.
3. Painting on a working easel.
4. Painting at an angle to show the side and surface.
5. A fragment of the work
6. Painting on the wall
