Should you buy it?
Buy it because you love it. This is likely the most important reason to shell out money for art. The art could shock you or just make you think. The most shocking piece of art I’ve ever seen is a sculpture called the Veiled Nun by Giuseppe Croff. Marble is not transparent but I think I can see through the veil in this sculpture.
Do not overextend yourself to buy art, because art should enhance your life not make it more difficult. Don’t feel guilty about not buying art. Many artists are definitely struggling but that doesn’t mean that you should too. Take the opportunity of recommending an artist that you like to one of your affluent friends.
