Buying original works of art is no longer the preserve of the wealthy. This book reveals that good quality pieces at reasonable prices are available to buy. In a practical and accessible style, Hugh St Clair begins by considering the important questions Why buy art? and What is art? He then covers each of the visual arts - including drawing, painting, prints, posters, photographs, sculpture, and multimedia - including historical background, buying guidelines, and useful contacts and references. Buyer's tips are highlighted throughout. In later chapters he explains how to get the best deals and avoid pitfalls; how and where are the best places to buy; the insurance, tax, and licensing implications for your pieces; how to best avoid buying fakes or frauds; and how to care, display, and restore your art. In addition to relevant terms being explained and useful references being provided throughout, the book includes a glossary describing art movements and a directory supplying more general websites, auction houses, galleries, museums, and fairs.
