About this title

Synopsis:

* Arranged into ten topics that are approached through a key question and answer format, art advisors Thea Westreich Wagner and Ethan Wagner offer an accessible yet unrivalled insider's view into the often opaque world of collecting art, drawing from their extensive experience in working with collectors and institutions of contemporary art. Collecting Art for Love, Money and More looks at why collecting art is a completely unique experience that offers emotional, intellectual and social rewards. The authors argue that the motivations for acquiring a work of art and building a collection, unlike buying anything else, may be any combination of investment potential, aesthetics, love of art, challenge, intellectual exploration, social status, adrenaline rush, ego-building or public attention.

About the Author:

Ethan Wagner's art interests go back more than two decades; he has collected art, published artists' books, and been involved with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and other art organizations. He now manages Art Advisory's business and financial practices and external communications, canvasses the international art market on behalf of clients, and publishes artists' books. Thea Westreich Wagner worked for numerous years as a volunteer in the visual and performing arts. She founded Thea Westreich Art Advisory Services in 1982, and has advised private collectors throughout the United States and Europe. She has built a library of 13,000 volumes that underlies her firm's dedication to research and analysis. She also publishes artists' books.
