The art world can be an intimidating one for the experienced buyer let alone the aspiring collector, but with this handbook to the world of collecting, Michael Reid arms buyers with a no-nonsense, informative map to the issues surrounding the buying and selling of art.
No matter what your budget or your collecting interest, How to Buy and Sell Art answers all the questions you might have taking you from your first visit to an art gallery all the way to the high drama of an auction room. Michael Reid offers advice on everything from when and when not to buy art, artists to keep an eye on, collecting categories, tax and superannuation matters, collecting groups and how to buy Aboriginal art.
With an Australia-wide listing of galleries, fine art auction houses, conservators and restorers, and collecting associations together with a glossary of key terms, How to Buy and Sell Art is an invaluable resource for anybody with an interest in art.
After a decade of arts experience with Christie's London, Michael Reid is now a leading Australian art market commentator, dealer and consultant. He advises both private and corporate clients and has since the mid 1990s written as art market analyst in a weekly column for The Australian.
