How To Make Money Through Art

Investing in art is a great way to renovate your home and increase your 
savings. The value of art can appreciate with the passage of time while 
hanging on the wall. Active participation will let you collect good 
information and knowledge about the world of art. In order to get started, 
follow a couple of smart tips.

Start by researching. Pay a visit to a couple of museums close to your 
residential place and get familiar with some painters. Market brochures and 
galleries are very helpful in getting necessary information. Learn the type 
of arts and determine your area of interest in order to choose suitable 
artistic work from reliable painters. It would be helpful if you could begin 
with an investment of around 10,000 to 15,000 pounds. Remember that you are 
in the market to buy and keep the piece for a certain amount of time and not 
for making quick profits. Do not concentrate on buying and selling artistic 
pieces. Instead, focus your interest on the pleasure a work of art can give 
and learn the basics of trade while using paintings to decorate your home.

In order to make a good collection, determine the painting style and 
history, your tates and preferences. Though the entry level for investment 
can be around 10,000 pounds, you can start with 1,000 pounds if you develop 
an eye on finding good deals at affordable prices. Buying paintings from 
artists who have just started their career is a great way to get good deals 
and save lot of money.

When the time passes, the value of the painting may increase, but there is 
no guarantee. If you feel that the value has increased considerably, sell 
the work for the current market price. Save a portion of your profits and 
invest the balance in other artistic work.

Look for artists who have a good story. A challenging and fascinating 
painting story will fetch higher price as the time passes. When it comes to 
value in work, rarity plays an important role. If the copies of a particular 
artistic work are rare and less in circulation, its value can increase 
considerably in no time.

Make sure that you are dealing with an artist who has attained proper 
training and mentoring. Such an artist will always be held in high esteem by 
the art world and the art collectors. Get familiar with the financial 
achievements of the artist. It can be useful to judge an artist's 
credibility by noting the prices that their work has sold for across the 
country over a period of time. Beware of galleries that are not independant 
though, and only allowed to sell the work they are given by the publishers 
that control them.

The simplest way to ascertain the value of a particular artistic work is to 
find the price at which others have bought that piece. If you wish to work 
with a painter with little history, find out the value of his work at trade 
shows and galleries. Signed prints, and limited editions can be a great way 
to enter the market, if you are unable to afford original piece of work. The 
value of such pieces increase with time as they are available in limited 
quantity and often signed personally by the artist, who may or may not be 
dead. It is important to pay attention to the work of highly acclaimed and 
recognized artists, as their work will always have a value far above an 
unknown artist.

While investing in any kind of art work, make sure to manage your risk 
effectively. Prepare beforehand whether you choose to invest in original 
pieces or signed limited edition prints. With time and knowledge, you should 
be able to earn a profit through art investments.
