Food for thought

Posted on Feb 17, 2011

Thing’s are fairly quiet on the domestic art front at present. The impressionist sales certainly produced astonishing results. Apparently many years ago there was a major charity sale arranged in Dublin & Francis Bacon sent over a painting but it failed to sell! Was it 25 million his small triptych went last week?

An idea for young collectors – form a group of 4, contribute €1,000 or more each per year. I will advise you and we can buy 4 paintings at the start which  you can rotate around your homes. After 5 years we will sell them all and you can divide the proceeds. Any takers?
