Developing A Fine Art Collection

By Steve Graves

Fine art investing is a huge deal as we enter 2010. This includes many different artists, not limited to Picasso or Warhol. Investing in stock is so unstable these days, so investing in more tangible things is becoming more popular. Fine art can encompass oil paintings, sculptures, and lithographs. Art investors don’t just want to have assets that will increase in time, but they will support their favorite artists. Fine art is also something great to collect.

Collecting fine art

Find an artist or art that you like. Art is a medium that often evokes a strong emotional response in the eye of the beholder. At the point that you find an artist that pleases you, you can begin your collection. Then, you can begin researching the artist. You can find a lot of information online offering Fine Art collections. Learn as much about the artist as you can. Knowledge is important in becoming a good art collector.

Becoming knowledgeable of the artist I choose:

There are several online opportunities for finding out information about your chosen artist. There are also forums and art enthusiast discussion boards online. Blogs online may be helpful, and you might also join a local Arts Council. Museums are also a great source and will give informative talks about the skill of fine art collecting and of course tours of exhibits that currently have on display. Galleries often hold events and investment pieces. You can be put on mailing lists to take advantage of their expertise. Art Expos and fairs can be a wealth of valuable information. When you make your choice, you should consult an expert to learn the value of the piece. This will give you certification as to the authenticity for the pieces in your collection which will be especially valuable for insurance purposes.
