The next thing in art
Art auctions offer a wide range of pieces and various local and international art creations to whoever desires it, whether on behalf of art loving or the future profit predicted for the art buyer (if there is one).
The adrenalin feeling the spreads all over the body moment before hand is raised in front of the audience in the hall and the intoxicating excitement in any jump in the price of the piece, give a tremendous and hypnotizing lift to the spirit. The future buyer immediately becomes a professional, in his eyes.
What leads that person to raise his hand when his eyes sparkle in front of the piece he wishes to purchase? There are many reasons to choose an art piece: beauty, aesthetic, personal taste, ego, understanding the piece knowing the various artistic sequences of the artist over the years, public opinion on the piece and more.
The choice of a person in specific piece doesn’t always match the opinions of those who claim to understand art and have knowledge and expertise in the field, however, personal taste is a matter with reasons that are not often clear and they are part of the art lover’s soul, for better or worse.
Today, there are vicious attacks on paintings, and the piece quality and attributed movement are constantly questioned. The chaos and blur of opinions regarding the piece’s quality are a matter that the smaller factor, namely the piece buyer who wishes to hang quality art in his house, face not once or twice. In some cases, the buyers gives up in the situation and remains clueless in front of the black hole and winding roads the art world offers to him.
Some art pieces don’t find a “good home”, they don’t receive the required attention and therefore they are not approved as authentic pieces. Approval is considered as meaningful proof and when this approval is being spared from the piece – there is a problem. In these cases, some knowing people emerge and they nod their head, either for yes or no, and the rumors of their opinions spread wildfire. If the quality of the piece is determined with lack of accuracy, so to speak, by a person who tear it apart, then the tiny art market bows before this diagnosis and this piece is “burnt”.
How can we improve this kind of market that lazily sails and swings from side to side? How can we know with no doubt that the piece we purchased is authentic?
Answers to these questions are right under your nose. There several solutions to this issue, such as books, catalogs and professionals. Beyond those solutions, we can assist people who understand the field and operate professionally in the country, and can provide clear and clean criticism, as well as information not merely on the piece’s authenticity but also they can shed some light on other impressive abilities that are visible in other art pieces by the artists that he experiences in different states and put on the fabric. For example: beauty and gentleness compared to gloominess and darkness that are shown on different pieces of the same artists in different mediums.
In the following series of article I will share with you stories and knowledge from the art dealing world; the feelings and moods that glide around the showroom halls, and whisperings of art dealing that advice on purchasing deliberations, from a truth that is a lie with no legs to a whole truth (in most cases) about this piece or another.
Some cases remain with no answer, and questions about pieces that were found or discovered are left hanging with no response. In some cases we can’t find the aesthetic considerations that relate to the pure quality of art loving, of you may understand me, and there are some other cases in which the same passion for aesthetic that is integrated tightly with the wish to expand the personal collection, is blended with the thought on future profits.
The main question regarding the financial profit from an art piece is a question that is asked often and is followed by considerable deliberations.
