How did the art market get so hot, and what can an artist do to make their artwork more valuable in their own lifetime…without having to cut off an ear…or something else?
Here is some information about three paintings that make some interesting statements and ask some interesting questions about art prices, multimillion dollar art auctions, and the art market in general.
The paintings are by Robert Barrows, President of an Advertising Agency called R.M. Barrows Advertising & Public Relations. Barrows is also a painter, sculptor, author, poet, songwriter and an inventor.
The paintings are paintings of the statements and questions as follows:
1) Some art sells for Millions,
Some art won't even sell at a garage sale…
2) If this painting becomes worth hundreds of millions after I die, how much can I get for it NOW?
3) At a multimillion dollar art auction...Does the second place bidder breathe a sigh of relief, or a sigh of regret?
One of the paintings in this trilogy of paintings about art prices is shown on this page. To see photos of the other two paintings, you can contact Robert Barrows at R.M. Barrows, Advertising & Public Relations.
NOW, REGARDING ART PRICES:
How much do you think Michelangelo's "David" or the "Mona Lisa" might go for at an art auction some day?
AND, REGARDING ART AS AN INVESTMENT...
1) Is it only for the super rich?
2) Is there any way that ordinary income people can participate?
3) Are only famous name artists worth buying? And at what cost?
4) How would you compare art as an investment with real estate, jewelry or stocks and bonds?
5) How much art should be in your portfolio, or, should any art be in your portfolio?
6) What kind of insurance do you have to carry if you just bought a hundred million dollar piece of art?
7) How liquid is art?
8) How are the companies that are selling futures in art doing?
9) And...can an artist set up a fund to sell futures in their own art, and what are the regulations concerning those kinds of transactions?
PLUS...FOR COMPANIES IN THE ART BUSINESS:
Barrows has also developed a proposal for a very special kind of art promotion that could help generate tremendous publicity and tremendous new revenues for art galleries, art museums, art publications, and general mass media as well. The proposal is for a "Name This Piece of Art and Win Money" Promotion for a piece of sculpture he did.
