1. Do I connect with the Artwork?

 

"The collector who buys with passion, with guts, is led by their heart and doesn't think primarily of the investment, is the one who makes the best investment" - Simon de Pury.

When it comes to buying art, your guiding principle should be to follow your heart. Just don't leave yourself hanging and let it get away - it could be the love of your life.

2. Where will I put the artwork?

 

If you have a specific space in mind, then don't forget to come to the fair armed with measurements - that way you can be sure of finding something to fit exactly. If you're running low on wall space however, don't be afraid to think outside the box: shelves, desk-tops, sideboards and even the floor can all prove useful and effective spaces for displaying art.

 

3. Is it within my budget?

 

"You don't have to be a Rockefeller to collect art" - Herb and Dorothy Vogel.

An unknown collector may have paid almost $3.7 million for Tracey Emin's 'My Bed', but that doesn't mean that's what you should be doing. Infamous collectors, The Vogels - librarian Dorothy and postman Herbert, over the course of their 50 year marriage used their modest salaries to amass an art collection now worth hundreds of millions. Moral of the story? Art is more affordable than you might think. And, if you have fallen for a piece which is tipping the budget, then don't be afraid to ask the galleries at the fair about payment schemes, as most will offer some sort of payment plan.
