Hidden Gems: Our expert's weekly curation of original artworks

Our Hidden Gems collection brings you 12 different original artworks every Friday at 12:00GMT.

That is why we'll be highlighting some of our rarest works, curated by an expert in art history, so you can discover more from new and favourite artists. 

Featured art; 'The Greatest Showman II', £5,500. Original oil on boxed canvas.

Why an original artwork? 

Original artworks can go through many laborious processes at the hands of an artist, including 3D sculpting and modelling, graphic design and hand-painting. It is the artist's original piece that paves the way for the production of our signed limited edition artworks and represents the birthplace of their artistic concept. 

Original artworks can also take many forms, from oil paintings to sculptures and hand-embellished prints straight from the hands and studios of some of our most popular artists.

Our portfolio of original works features creations by internationally exhibited artists whose careers are continually evolving as they experiment with different materials and techniques. This means that an original artwork is a piece of art history, and as each work is accompanied by a letter of provenance, you can also be sure of its authenticity.

There are many more benefits to owning an original artwork and you read more about them in our Fine Art Collector magazine. You can also discover the differences between limited edition and original art here.
