I find myself in the position where I am decluttering the house and for a long time have convinced myself that I live with hoarders and none of the stuff in the house is mine. Oh I am wrong.
Post this revelation, I have been reacquainted with a number of forgotten cardboard tubes, inside each one of them a glorious print (or two), all of which have been diligently purchased over the years and gradually forgotten about.
Ironically, I do have some practical tips when buying art.
- The most important factor is that you have to like what you are buying, in fact love it. I would encourage you to speak to the artist/seller.
- Do not buy art with view that this is your pension pot, the disappointment may be too much to bare.
- Think about where you would want to display your art. (Clearly not a rule I follow too closely)
- Before you buy, have a budget in mind and stick to it. You will thank yourself at a later date.
- If you are still undecided, wait!
The below list was almost impossible to create, which is why PART TWO and THREE will follow.
