With the recent developments in the world's economy, investing securely and wisely is proving to be a more difficult task.
Throughout the centuries, Art has proven to be a relatively reliable investment, namely because it has always been taken in high consideration by most of the people.
Of course that when buying Art, one should take into consideration if the purchase is to fill a personal taste, a pure investment or both. In my opinion, unless one is really well informed and can more or less predict the future, it's better to buy an artwork that one likes, afterall many times a real appreciator spends millions on a painting or sculpture, not with the intention of profiting but to contemplate its beauty.
Most of us cannot reach the famous works seen in auctions, however there are many good artists with great potential who's Art is accessible. The pleasure of buying Art and even possessing a collection is not reserved to the rich, I myself have recently acquired some works which can be seen at this page of my website.
