Arty-Farty about Art's Asset Appreciation:
IRISH INDEPENDENT (Thurs. 12st Nov. 2002)
Stock Markets have been suffering, according to the specialist website Artprice.com,
international trends have seen the average value of a work of art increasae by
almost 19% in a period of little more than 2 years from July 2002 to September
1st last. That experience has certainly been reflected in Ireland, where many
works of art have increased by over 20% in a single year. In some cases value
increases have been even more spectacular, especially in the case of previously
unknow artists who have since gone on to make their names. One such example of
this trend is artist John Nolan, some of whose works have doubled in value over
the past three years.
good tip for assessing an artists value is to keep a regular eye on the art press.
Basically the more positive reveiws an artist receives from the critics, the more
likely it is that his or her work will increase in value.
