ArtTalk – Building an Art Collection with David Rago
The art market is notoriously uncertain. We hear of riches made by modest collectors with an eye, extraordinary frauds, and market manipulation. And then we’re told to “Buy what you like!” Sure, but prices are all over the place. How do you know what you should pay, whether you’re buying a John Smith or a Rembrandt van Rijn? (It happens!) How do you navigate trends in art?
You probably should buy what you like, but we’ll see if we can get some more tips from David Rago, of Rago Arts in Lambertville.
