A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO BUYING ART “Learning to buy art can be an art in itself” Many people who think they’d like to start collecting original art often hesitate out of fear they’ll spend lots of money on ultimately worthless artworks. While it’s true that learning to buy art can be an art in itself, it’s like any other skill: anyone with the will to learn can learn to purchase art successfully.

A first step in this overall process of learning to buy art is to make sure that the attractive artwork is actually an original. The art marketplace today is flooded with works that look original, but are actually reproductions. This reality reflects today’s technological age, in which so many original works can be reproduced mechanically. As part of the defining phase of art buying, buyers must learn how to distinguish originals from copies. Once a buyer feels confident in his or her ability to spot original art, it’s time to define the nature of what could become a personal art collection. A buyer should 4

learn the correct art terms for what they prefer so that dealers and galleries can help them find art they like in a price range they can afford. This way, the buyer and the dealer won’t waste any time with artworks that don’t fit the customer’s intention to buy art. The selection phase begins once the buyer has set his or her guidelines for dealers and galleries. The bottom line here is that art buying is like shopping for any other commodity; compare prices, vendors and quality before making a purchase. For those who wish to buy art, this means locating those vendors who deal in precisely the type of original art the buyer wishes to purchase, and then comparing their offerings. There are also nuances to buying original art. For instance, buyers who establish themselves with dealers, galleries and artists often get the first opportunity when a new work is offered

Any art purchase shouldn’t be completed until the buyer has had time to research both the artist and the artwork. Critical to this research is to learn the work’s ownership history, which often has an effect on its value. Having the artwork appraised and verified is also a good idea to avoid being taken in by forgers and scams. Finally, it’s time to conclude the purchase. Here a wise buyer should learn something about the volatility of the art market, particularly why art prices can fluctuate at times. As with all major purchases, it’s possible to negotiate a more attractive price for original art, especially when the buyer’s research shows that the asking price overstates the art’s ultimate value. Honing these skills to define, select, research and buy art will make collecting original art a truly satisfying experience.

Experts often say that the skill of buying original art is composed of four steps: define the type of art one prefers, select one or two artists who create such art, research the artists and their works, and then negotiate the buy for the best possible price.

for sale. In addition, buying original art differs greatly from purchasing a work from a dealer, so it’s key to learn those differences and work with them. There are also ways that one should never use to buy art, and savvy customers will learn these as well.

A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO BUYING ART “If you are deciding where to begin, consider your home’s furnishings...”

If you are deciding where to begin, consider your home’s architecture and furnishings.

Most open concept homes feature very modern architecture so a piece of contemporary wall art may be more fitting. Contemporary wall art is available in a range of styles and mediums including oil, acrylic and watercolor. They are available as canvas paintings, pieces on board or paper so your choices are really limitless. Where will you be purchasing your pieces can have a large impact on what you can choose from. If you are buying canvas paintings from a gallery, you can often request that they reframe a piece in a way that suits your décor. If you are purchasing from an online website, you may be more interested in purchasing canvas paintings as they can be less expensive to ship than a piece painted on board or which has been framed under glass. You may wonder why paintings are done on different materials. Oil paintings need a canvas or a board background that will not move and crack the paint. Acrylic should also be done as canvas wall paintings or on board. Watercolor, ink or graphite pieces need to be painted on paper. Contemporary wall art can evoke a range of very strong feelings in the viewer.


Pieces can be painted in a variety of styles varying from completely abstract to highly representational. Abstract or non-representational pieces usually use color or pattern to fill a space as opposed to a structured piece that composed according to set rules. There are a few very famous painters of contemporary wall art. One of the most notable is Andy Warhol who created amazing pieces of pop icons and images such as his famous Campbell’s Soup Can series. Contemporary wall art is similar to modern art and there are many crossovers. Basically, contemporary wall art has been created by artists who have been active after the 1970s, whereas modern artists such as Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollack were active from the mid 1900s to the 1970s. If you are looking for canvas paintings in any style, you may be unsure about what you can expect to pay. Artwork can range significantly in price even among pieces that are painted on the same substrate (a canvas wall painting versus a painting on board) or are the same size. The fame of the artist, the rarity of their work, the size of the piece and the style it is painted in can all affect the price of an original piece of artwork.

If you are interested in collecting art you may be unsure where to begin. The art world is so diverse with a range of styles available from contemporary wall art to classical styles such as abstract, impressionism and realism. There are also paintings that have been created on a variety of bases. You can find canvas paintings, paintings on board or paper, or even mixed media or collages that use a variety of unique items to make up a piece.

THE SAINSBURY CENTRE FOR VISUAL ARTS “Stunning examples of art of the modern ages are framed by Lord Norman Foster’s great masterpiece.” Paul Greenhalgh, Director

A world-class museum

The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts is a world-class museum in a landmark late-modernist building designed by Lord Norman Foster and set in parkland at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich. Photo: Andy Crouch.

The Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection The Sainsbury Centre was founded by Sir Robert and Lady Sainsbury who in 1973 donated their private art collection to the University and commissioned Norman Foster to design a museum in which to house it. Admission is free to see this outstanding collection of world art that spans 5000 years of human creativity. Works by European masters such as Francis Bacon, Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso, Edgar Degas, Amedeo Mogliani, Alberto Giacometti are shown side by side with objects from around the globe, revealing the tremendous influence of world art on the modernist movement. 8

The UEA Collection of Abstract and Constructivist Art, Architecture and Design Begun in 1968 with a grant from the University of East Anglia, this collection holds a wealth of 1960s kinetic art, multiples and constructivist works from the late 20th century. In changing displays you will see architectural models, furniture reliefs as well as graphic arts and sculpture from this period. The theme of these fascinating works is the links between art and machine aesthetics, mass production, science and mathematics. 9

THE SAINSBURY CENTRE FOR VISUAL ARTS The Art Lab: Changing Landscapes Bringing together rarely displayed works of art from its collections together with stimulating new projects, commissions and residencies by visiting artists and academics, The Art Lab: Changing Landscapes is a new and unique type of exhibition that runs into 2013. The exhibition is a collaboration with the Fabrica art gallery in Brighton and three institutions in northern France. Changing Landscapes features multi-discipline contributions that will demonstrate a whole variety of the thinking about landscape and environmental issues.

MODERN: The Modernisms Gallery The Modernisms gallery is a 392 metre sq. exhibition space on the west mezzanine. It looks at themes in modern art and design over the last 100 years, with works drawn from the centre’s collections with loans from other major museums. Until 2 December 2012, the Modernisms Gallery will be showing Art Nouveau: Nature to Abstraction an exploration of how interest in the natural world and natural sciences influenced the artists and designers of the modernist movements in the late 19th and early 20th century. The spectacular display traces the development of Art Nouveau from highly ornate forms true to nature through to the beginnings of abstraction. The exhibition features the Sainsbury Centre’s Anderson Collection of Art Nouveau together with works on loan from major museums.
