Take any painting and try selling it inside an inner city ghetto art gallery if there even is one and if your lucky you might get someone to pay $50 for it...

But take that same painting and try selling it inside a beverly hills art gallery and you'll probably get someone to pay $5,000 for it...

So whats that damn painting actually worth?

Lets face the truth...

It depends on if the art piece speaks to you and if the artist stands firm on a fair price.

Quote:Of course, if your favourite subject happens to be the same as the market's, you're sitting pretty. According to a survey in Art Business Today, these were the top 10 best-selling subjects for paintings in the UK:

Traditional landscapes.
Local views.
Modern or semi-abstract landscapes.
Figure studies (excluding nudes).
Seascapes, harbour, and beach scenes.
Impressionistic landscapes.


Of course, a blend of abstract, semi-abstract, cubism and nudity bring in the interest and money, as well as lots of talent and courage by the artist.

Quote:Banned: The cubist painting will not be allowed out on display due to the bare-breasted women it contains
