This thread is asking the question: Which is more respectable: inkjet art prints of famous paintings, or oil painting reproductions of famous paintings? I realize that both options are very bad compared to having the original painting. However, since originals of famous paintings cost upwards of a million dollar, the two lesser options will have to do. I also realize that a third option is to buy only original paintings that are not famous, but then the quality/content would be inferior to that in the famous paintings, so that's not a good option either IMO. Going back to famous paintings, I like the idea that art prints are exact copies of the original, but I dislike that they are are produced by inkjet printers instead of with oil paint. On the other hand, I like the idea that commissioned reproductions are made with oil paint, but I dislike how they are not exact copies of the original. Since both options have good and bad points to them, what should be the factor that determines which option is better? Out of legions of sellers on the Internet for both options, how does one determine which sellers are reputable?
