On Becoming A Collector Of Paintings

It all begins with a subconscious appreciation for all that is beautiful to the mind’s eye. Oftentimes folks don’t always know or realize that they have an acute sense or sensibility for artistic impressions, whether these have been deliberately created from the hands, and creative minds, of others, or already exist in nature. Usually, when artistic displays are put up in the home or office, they go no further than the photographic or painterly interpretations of memories or memorable events.

When the artwork is put up on a wall, the design intention is to create a lasting impression, something, if well cared for, that can last for many years. And that is exactly what has happened with the classics. These paintings have been divided into expressionist and impressionist categories or genres. The standard materials that were used by the greats of the past were oil paints. Many of them even went as far as manufacturing their own paint from animals and natural ingredients.

But pretty much all of these paintings are beyond the reach of the low to middle income art lover. The prices are way out of reach and it would not be practical to make such an investment. If such famous expressionist and impressionist works are not being housed within the halls of a wealthy collector, they are, thankfully, being housed in public galleries where all and sundry can have access to them.

In the meantime, low to middle income art collectors are faced with the prospect of going online to order their expressionist and impressionist paintings for sale online. This in itself is not a bad thing, because much of the catalogued works of art are not bad at all. And after a professional evaluation, what price would they be worth in the future?
