URBAN ART AS AN INVESTMENT
In the highest echelons of the art world, headlines are often grabbed by big-ticket auction sales – a Lucian Freud, for example, will sell for $33 million, or a Renoir for US$15 million. Results such as these get the salesroom cheering but – be assured – profitable disposals are made a very long way below that level; they just don’t make the headlines.
At Cercle Des Art we have work available by emerging artists from as little as $3,000. At this affordable level, you can acquire something from an emerging artist who is already beginning to create an impression in the market, and whose work we believe has the potential drastically to increase in value in the future.
From the $15,000-mark we can often supply investors with access to work by more established artists. At this higher price level, you can own a piece by an artist whose name is widely known– one who has already attracted significant attention in both the media and the market, and from serious collectors.
If you have a particular artist whose work you would like to buy, then we can often ascertain exactly which works are available, and at what price – through
our extensive international network of art market contacts we can usually source work from artists, studios, agents, collectors, and other galleries. If it’s work by one specific artist that you want to acquire, then we can act as your buying agent for a small commission.
