The Economics of Art & Money!

There is a perception that wealthy people have first claim on the “good” art. Indeed, the value of a painting by Van Gogh or Monet is substantial. In the end, it comes down to the art of economics 101 – somebody has to pay! We owe a great deal to the wealthy patrons, past and present, who used their resources to preserve invaluable collections. Where would the world be without the Renaissance Pope, Julius II who supported the great Michelangelo?

I would argue however that beauty, colour, form and structure belong to everyone.  Art can be found in surprising places – ready for you to enjoy.
