Hmmmm....how do you evaluate art? And more importantly how do you evaluate a newer artist's work? What's it worth? Is it good? It's genius to customer A and perhaps the painting behind the sofa to customer B. Wondering if there's a real way to tell. I have a piece of art a russian artist did of a friend in 1990 when he was unknown. His website seems to be getting bigger tho for a kind of art unlike this abstract rendering. Do you really have to go to Christies or Sotheby's or Antique Roadshow to get a full evaluation of a piece of art's worth? Hmmmmmmmmmmm. I'm gonna have a coffee (and NO lobster) and ponder this some more and see if anyone is much more studied in this!
