In its quest to become a (the?) portal for virtually any saleable good in the known universe, Amazon has recently started selling one-off fine artworks, collectibles and valuable works.

Among the works on sale is Damien Hirst's 2007 Beautiful Magnificent Stand And Deliver Painting (With Diamonds), which costs £323,000 but comes with "free shipping".

The painting, which measures 36in (91.5cm) by 36in (91.5cm), is described online as being "Cubic zirconia and household gloss paint on canvas".

Other works up for sale include Claude Monet's L'Enfant A La Tasse, Portrait de Jean Monet for 1.45 million US dollars (£900,000) and American painter Norman Rockwell's Willie Gillis: Package From Home for 4.85 million US dollars (£3.1 million).

And Amazon's masterful comedy reviewers have taken the bait.

Across the site, wry, sardonic and occasionally oblivious commenters have taken the retailer to task for everything from mis-selling "broken" Andy Warhol artwork to not offering one-day delivery on a Monet painting worth more than $1.45 million.

So even if you can't afford to pick up your own million pound masterpiece for the kitchen wall, it turns out you can still enjoy Amazon's foray into the world of Christies and Sotheby's.

Here are some of our favourite reviews so far - and the extraordinarily rare artworks that they accompany.

  • Monet - 'Fragment de Nymphéas'

    <a href="" target="_blank">REVIEW:</a> <blockquote>What really sold me was the "in room" picture on this site, where it's next to a chair and side table. I couldn't quite picture it in my house, but after that imagery it was a no brainer.</blockquote>

  • Andy Warhol 'Hamburger Michel'

    <a href="" target="_blank">REVIEW</a>: <blockquote>I bought this for my apartment because I'm an architecture student, and I thought the image overlap was because I am still using my Power Mac 5200 and the monitor isn't what it once was in 1996. Buyer beware-- your monitor is not messing up, it really does look like that.</blockquote>

  • Norman Rockwell - 'Package From Home'

    <a href="" target="_blank">REVIEW</a>: <blockquote>Installed one of these on top of my urinal, and besides the creepy looks on their faces when I pee, its been worth the purchase.</blockquote>

  • Helen Frankenthaler - 'Ariondacks'

    <a href="" target="_blank">REVIEW</a>: <blockquote>I think is a pretty good job of painting. However, I must say that I have looked up pictures of the Adirondacks on Bing image search, and most of what I see doesn't look like this. I think maybe the artist mistitled this?</blockquote>

  • Helen Frankenthaler - 'Ariondacks'

    <a href="" target="_blank">REVIEW</a>: <blockquote>Well that's a very cool painting indeed, but he price seems a little too high. I can offer you two dollars.</blockquote>

  • Monet - 'L'Enfant a la tasse'

    <a href="" target="_blank">REVIEW</a>: <blockquote>It's a beautiful painting, and I'm glad I purchased it. The only problem I have is that I couldn't figure out where to hang it. Every other day, I ring my bell and wait for my butler to come. "Jeeves, can you please move the Monet to the solarium?" "Jeeves, can you please move the Monet to the library? No, not that library. The one on the third floor." It's a small painting, so finding a space where it can be showcased is difficult.</blockquote>

  • Monet - 'L'Enfant a la tasse'

    <a href="" target="_blank">REVIEW</a>: <blockquote>For as much as I paid I'm a little upset that this isn't a new painting. You can see OBVIOUS cracks and I'm worried that the artwork has had several owners before me. I might return to Amazon if I can't get in touch with the seller. 1 out of 5 stars.</blockquote>

  • Monet - 'L'Enfant a la tasse'

    <a href="" target="_blank">REVIEW</a>: <blockquote>Seeing the number of other reviews though has left me with some concerns about whether or not this item is an original. I suppose it doesn't really matter, though. If it isn't, it's a very convincing replica and it looks great propping open the lid on my Steinway. And, again, $1.45mil. Chump change.</blockquote>
