We are starting a new thread which will be updated from time to time, relating to some of the more common mistakes made by art collectors which we might not have experienced but can at least relate to. There has been a lot of debate here about whether to even do a list such as this.
The argument goes along the line “Mistakes is a word which is negative, can’t they be referred to as ‘habits’?”.
“What? Bad habits? Isn’t that negative too?” How can we make the list positive? It’s about things to avoid.
So, it goes on and the conclusion;….”Common Mistakes Made By Art Collectors…and how to avoid them”.
We do not stand in judgement since we reside within the same the glass house too.
The points are listed in no particular order:
