How do we check artworks before we put them up for auction? How do we interact with experts? How does the study of provenance (history of ownership) take place? Sometimes along the way we meet some unexpected and pleasant discoveries. Watch the reconstructions of such real-life events in the new rubric “Examining Artworks” on the YouTube channel of ArtSale.info.
The fact that prices have risen noticeably over the past year is a common feeling among collectors. Some whistle in surprise: “Wow!” And someone grumbles: “You've made everything expensive”.
Let us not rush to generalizations. Although, as we know, there is no smoke without fire.
What underestimated artists are worth investing in right now, at a time of intensifying crisis? The works of which authors are cheap today, and in a few years will greatly increase in price? New visitors to the ArtSale.info auction and viewers of our YouTube channel regularly ask for specifics. So that without “water”, without lengthy reasoning, but list by name.
And the specifics will be presented further. But not at once.
ArtSale.info has published the first editions of the video course “Learning to Collect Art”. In order to assemble the first collection of quality paintings and drawings, it is not all necessary to operate with fabulous money. In fact, a small collection can be built for 100,000 rubles. And with a budget of 300,000–500,000 rubles, you can already collect a collection of investment-grade works. However, it's not just about the money, of course.
There are basic criteria for investment security — authenticity and name. But why, then, when choosing a picture, experienced buyers ask the year and pay close attention to the plot? What difference does it make to them?
And there is a difference. Yes, and what!
Let's look at some examples.
ArtSale.info has published the first editions of the course “Learning to Invest in Art Objects”. Tips are addressed to novice collectors and first-time investors. Is it a good time to buy now? Which artists should you invest in? Where is the best place to buy? The answers to these and other questions are in the new video headings “Learning to Invest in Art Objects” on ArtSale Auction channel.
If you are thinking about paintings, you are already lost. Collecting and investing in art purchases is an incredibly interesting world. Addictive. This is not just a bet to win, but a continuous intellectual quiz. But the art market is very different from the real estate or securities markets. I have never heard of fake apartments or promotions that have one or two buyers. But with pictures it happens in different ways.
