Art Advisory

There are many good reasons to buy and collect art: the love of art, the fostering of talent or the belief in art as an investment. The international contemporary art scene is exciting, and, at the same time, constantly in a state of flux and therefore challenging and often difficult to predict. Discovering young sculptors or purchasing already established painters in the art market, can be a fascinating activity and an excellent investment. The evaluation of an art work depends, however, on many factors. Making appropriate decisions is not always easy.
