A beginner’s guide to how to start your own art collection on any budget to create a unique home that reflects your individual style. A work of art – whether it is unexpected, groundbreaking, or one of a kind – can personalise your interior and transform it into a place like no other. But actually purchasing a signature piece – or even crossing the threshold into a gallery – can be a daunting act. How can you develop your own taste or gauge whether you’re making a worthwhile investment?
Drawing on a decade of experience at Christie’s, Olivia de Fayet and Fanny Saulay are on a mission to make art accessible to everyone. Their step-by-step guide takes the guesswork out of purchasing, guiding amateurs to cultivate an eye and to select favourite pieces. They cover everything you need to know about starting your own collection, along with advice on purchasing, framing and hanging artworks.
Olivia de Fayet and Fanny Saulay run their own art gallery, Wilo and Grove, in a former print shop in Paris.
