What to Consider when Collecting Art

When collecting art, there are several important factors to consider. Here are some key considerations for art collectors:

  • Personal Taste and Connection: Collect art that resonates with you on a personal level. Your collection should reflect your individual taste, preferences, and emotional connection to the artworks. Explore different genres, styles, and mediums to discover what truly speaks to you.

  • Research and Knowledge: Educate yourself about art history, different art movements, notable artists, and the art market. Attend art exhibitions, visit museums, read books, and engage with the art community to expand your knowledge. Research the artists you're interested in and understand their artistic journey, influences, and significance within the art world.

  • Authenticity and Provenance: Ensure the authenticity of the artworks you collect. Research and verify the authenticity of the artist's signature, certificates of authenticity, and any supporting documentation. Additionally, consider the provenance, which refers to the history of ownership and exhibition of the artwork. A strong provenance can enhance the value and desirability of the artwork.

  • Condition and Conservation: Assess the condition of the artwork before acquiring it. Minor wear is common in older pieces, but extensive damage can significantly impact value. Consult with art conservators or experts if necessary to evaluate the condition and potential restoration needs of the artwork. Proper conservation and maintenance are crucial to preserving the artwork's integrity and value.

  • Artist Reputation and Market Demand: Consider the reputation and recognition of the artist within the art world. Artists with established careers, critical acclaim, and a strong market demand generally have higher values. Stay informed about current trends and market dynamics to make informed decisions about which artists to collect.

  • Investment Potential and Long-Term Value: While collecting art should primarily be driven by personal enjoyment, it's worth considering the investment potential and long-term value of artworks. Research the performance of artists in the art market, consult with art advisors or dealers, and monitor auction results to assess the potential for appreciation over time.

  • Budget and Authenticity: Establish a budget for your art collecting endeavors and be mindful of your financial limitations. Allocate resources for art purchases, framing, insurance, and any additional costs associated with collecting. Prioritize authenticity and quality over quantity, focusing on acquiring fewer high-quality pieces rather than numerous lower-quality works.

  • Building Relationships and Expert Advice: Engage with galleries, art dealers, and other collectors to build relationships within the art community. Seek expert advice when necessary, whether from art consultants, appraisers, or curators. Networking with knowledgeable individuals can provide valuable insights and guidance throughout your collecting journey.


Remember, collecting art is a personal and subjective pursuit. Enjoy the process of discovering and acquiring artworks that inspire and enrich your life. It's a lifelong journey of learning, appreciation, and aesthetic fulfillment.

Particularly Valuable Art for Collectors

The world of art collecting is vast and diverse, encompassing a wide range of styles, artists, and periods. The value of art is influenced by factors such as the artist's reputation, historical significance, provenance, condition, and current market trends.

Renaissance and Baroque Sculpture: Sculptures from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, including pieces by Michelangelo and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, are valued for their artistic mastery and historical significance.

Chinese and Asian Art: Chinese ceramics, porcelain, jade carvings, and classical paintings have a dedicated global following. Rare and exquisite pieces from imperial dynasties can be incredibly valuable.

African and Oceanic Art: Tribal art and artifacts from Africa and the Pacific Islands are highly collectible. Masks, sculptures, and ritual objects are valued for their cultural and aesthetic significance.

Islamic Art and Manuscripts: Islamic art, including calligraphy, ceramics, textiles, and manuscripts, is esteemed for its intricate designs and cultural importance.

American Art: Works by American artists like Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Edward Hopper have gained prominence in the art market and are valuable to collectors.

Latin American Art: Latin American artists like Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Fernando Botero have attracted significant attention from collectors in recent years.

Photography: Fine art photography by renowned photographers like Ansel Adams, Cindy Sherman, and Andreas Gursky is collectible, with limited edition prints often commanding high prices.

Contemporary Art Installations: Large-scale contemporary art installations and immersive artworks by artists like Olafur Eliasson and Yayoi Kusama have gained popularity and value.

Street Art and Graffiti: Street art and graffiti, particularly works by artists like Banksy, have transitioned from urban walls to galleries and collectors' homes, with some pieces selling for substantial sums.

Ceramics and Pottery: Studio ceramics and pottery by renowned artists like Peter Voulkos and Lucie Rie are appreciated for their craftsmanship and artistic expression.

Antiquities: Ancient artifacts and antiquities from civilizations such as Egypt, Greece, and Rome are prized for their historical significance and rarity.

Artifacts from Famous Figures: Personal artifacts, letters, and memorabilia associated with famous historical figures, artists, or cultural icons can be valuable collectibles.


Art collecting is a nuanced and evolving field, and the value of artworks can fluctuate based on various factors. It's essential for collectors to conduct thorough research, consult experts, and keep abreast of market trends to make informed decisions when building their collections. Additionally, collecting should be driven by a genuine passion for art and a desire to appreciate and preserve cultural heritage.

Joseph Collazzi painting of an Italian streetway (10/07/2011)

Good afternoon, I have a Joseph Collazzi painting of an Italian streetway (I can send you a picture of it tomorrow). I have been trying to find out more information about the artist and today I found out that the artist always signs on the bottom left of his paintings BUT my painting is signed on the bottom right. The painting is framed and approximately 8.5" x 11". I was wondering what my painting was worth but I guess it would be better if I were to send you a picture of it first. If you could give me a guestimate that would be great if not I will wait until tomorrow after you have seen a picture of the painting. Also, if there are any art appraisers in the midtown NYC area that you know of that I could take the painting to get appraised that would be very helpful. Thank you very much for your time.

Lithograph - "the chess game" (05/21/2008)
