Map of America’s favorite Christmas artists by state according to eBay

Ebay map of most searched artists state-by-state (US)

eBay calculated the artists that its users search for most in each state. The map shows some interesting patterns.  Terry Redlin is the most popular search in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas. Never heard of him? He is the guy who paints the kind of Christmasy winter landscapes we’ve all seen at the house of an older relative or dentist’s office waiting room.  In California people adore Frida Kahlo.  In Michigan the most popular was a Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi and in New York Banksy. The question is why would eBay want to track the most-searched artists, not the most-purchased?
