If you’re just getting into the art scene, there are a few things you should keep in the back of your mind. When buying and selling art, you don’t need to major in art. You need to have a passion for art. If you can appreciate art, then you are already an expert. You can always learn more about art investing along the way. The important thing to do is to surround yourself with art that you appreciate and enjoy since art is all about interpretation. What may be appealing to someone else may not be your cup of tea and vice versa.
You should find out what your personal taste is and that will happen naturally as you go to art galleries and visit museums. You will begin to notice that you have a specific kind of taste when it comes to art and that will be your preferred genre. Books are another great way to find art to look at, and the History of Art Workbook is a great read for beginners. If you want to buy art, a local gallery is a great place to start. Most cities will have gallery openings and art shows that you can attend. It is a great way to meet the artists. Be sure to have a budget to build your art collection and start small.
