Art is a multi-layered purchase: it's both an emotional and a financial investment. How do you balance those elements as you counsel clients on what to buy?
First and foremost, I always advise a client to buy what they love. In addition, I encourage clients to invest in anchor pieces for their home and collection that they will, no doubt, enjoy and live with every day. Art is indeed an asset class, but I never suggest that a client buy a particular work solely because of its investment potential.
