The New Collector’s Guide Part 2 - What to do after your first purchase?

Art can be an intimidating world, which can make it difficult to buy your first piece of art. Here is our article where we answer some basic questions that every new collector have in their mind. Scroll down to learn what to do after buying your first artwork. 

 

Get it framed right

It is important how your art is displayed. Don't forget that simple is the best. Your art should be the focus not the frame. We recommend using black, brown or white frames. If your artwork is a photography or a work on paper (engravings, sketches, prints, lithographs, etc.) lighter colored mounts will make your picture seem larger.  Paintings are a different story from printed art. Oil or acrylic paintings are not always framed with glazing, and sometimes it is better not to use glazing. Our complimentary advisory service can help you choose the right frame for your artwork.

Find the right place

Move your artwork around the space to find the right light. A small piece of art can't fill a big space. Group small pieces together. Your artwork doesn't have to match your room. Traditional rooms can have modern art, and modern rooms can take traditional paintings. Don't be afraid to mix and match. At the end of the day, there is no right or wrong, it's you who will live with the artwork.

 

Follow the market

Whether it's an emerging artist or an established one, it is important to follow the artist and the value of your artwork. If you are an investor, always do you research and know what's happening in the art market.
