Salvador Dali, Toulouse-Lautrec, Aaron Sopher, oh my! With so may incredible artists and over 200 pieces to choose from, our upcoming art auction should not be missed. I sat down with Fine Art Specialist Debrah Dunner, to ask her a few questions about the November 23rd online-only art auction.
What types of art are featured in the upcoming sale?
The Art sale features art of all kinds; original paintings and prints, sports memorabilia, movie posters and even hand painted signs. There are some wonderful original paintings being offered at reduced estimates because they were overlooked in the high end gallery sales.
What are tips you would give someone just starting to collect art?
Buy what you love! Start small, and watch the market. You can find great deals at auction that you can’t find in the retail market. Bid often, and pay attention to your bids. Chances are if you think you spot a good deal, so has someone else.
Are there things a person should be mindful of when buying art?
Always do your research. Auction houses employ highly trained specialists, but their employees are not authenticators. If possible always look at what you are interested in buying in person during preview days. If you can’t come to the house to inspect it yourself, ask for a condition report. Be willing to take a risk, but know that it’s always a risk.
