If you love African art and are looking for great deals, there are some upcoming art auctions you should attend. Whether you are looking for a piece from the 1970s or a masterpiece from the 20th century, there are many fine pieces for sale to choose from. There are some great bargains to be found at auctions in Johannesburg and Cape Town this month.
The latest trends in art auctions are showing no sign of slowing down. In fact, the art market is expected to thrive despite the gloomy predictions made just three years ago. Experts from auction houses have been studying the sales data for the past six months to better understand the current market. In their report, they say that the business-getting season broke into two distinct chapters.
Buying art at auctions requires caution. The process of bidding can be quite stressful, so it is important to do your homework. Also, keep in mind that the condition of the object will influence the price. It is also a good idea to look at several auction houses before making a decision.
For example, the last Kansas auction of this year includes a fine collection from Colorado and a few exceptional individual consignments. Some of the most notable pieces are from Native American artists and reservation traders.
