PROVENANCE, PROVENANCE, PROVENANCE!!!

Read Time:1 Minute, 11 Second

THIRTY FIVE YEARS AGO I IGNORED THAT SIGNIFICANT WORD!!!

 

LE PHO, AN ARTIST WHOSE VALUES SOARS WHEN THE MAIG WORDS, WALLY FINTLEY GALLERIES IS BEHIND IT!!



What is “provenance?” What importance does it have in art and why so many collectors go mad with the word “PROVENANCE?”

THUS, YOU WILL NOTICE IN MANY AUCTIONS AND RESULTS THAT THE WORD PROVENANCE, EXHIBITED, OWNED BY SO AND SO PERSON OR GALLERY MAKES ART, ANTIQUES ETC FLY.

I AM SUMMING UP HERE THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THESE WORDS FOR ALL MY READERS TO NOTE DOWN WHY SOME PAINTINGS SELL A LOT MORE THAN OTHER PIECES OF THE SAME ARTIST JUST BECAUSE:

PROVENANCE: WHO OWNED THE PAINTING OVER THE YEARS. WHAT HISTORY OF OWNERSHIP DOES IT HAVE AND WHEN WAS IT PAINTED?

EXHIBITIONS: EXHIBITIONS OF PAINTINGS ADD TIME AFTER TIME TO THE VALUE OF PAINTINGS BECAUSE THEY ARE INCLUDED IN EXHIBITIONS BECAUSE THEY ARE OF GOOD QUALITY, GOOD PROVENANCE AND IMPORTANT IN THE ART OF AN ARTIST AND HISTORY OF ART.

LITERATURE: IF A PAINTING IS INCLUDED IN BOOKS, IN LITERACY ARTICLES AND MONOGRAPHS OR RAISONNES OF ARTISTS THEIR VALUE INCREASES DRAMATICALLY. OF COURSE ANY LITERATURE REFERS TO THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PAINTING, THE PERIOD OF EXECUTION, THE STYLE OF EXECUTION AND THE SCHOOL IT BELONGS TO.
I MY NEXT BLOG I WILL DISCUSS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SUBJECT, SIZE, CONDITION THAT MATTER TO MAKE THE ABOVE EVEN MORE SIGNIFICANT!!
