Dealing with 20th century modern art isn’t the same as collecting or dealing in antique art. Many people don’t question the cost of antique artwork. This is especially true if it has a famous name attached to it. People know that a Van Gogh is going to cost a good amount of money. However, even if they don’t like the painting, they may still purchase it based on the name of the artist. With modern art, that’s not always the case. Many people outside of the art world don’t know who the most popular modern artists are. They base their decision on what artwork to purchase based on the price and what it looks like. 20th century art collectors are, in some ways, more discerning because of this. We value every piece based on many factors to find the artwork’s true market value and we also buy art at best prices OR place them in our auctions for our clientele of collectors and connoisseurs to bid on for the more exclusive pieces.
Because it’s not antique, some people mistakenly believe that 20th century modern art has no value. Quite the opposite, some modern art is very valuable and pieces by the top artists can bring more than some antique art in poor condition. It all depends on the piece, the artist and its condition. Some people will pay a handsome amount for certain artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, or Henri Matisse. An appraisal can help determine the right value of an art work, it is important to contact a reputed Modern Art Buyer & Appraiser near you before you sell Modern Art in New York and Connecticut.
