For the first time, this book presents a concise guide to the New Zealand art market from the viewpoint of investment potential.
In addition to highly valued works by major artists, many secondary artists are discussed and the opportunity for acquisitions that cover a wide price range.
The many complex factors that determine commercial values in the art market are examined, including historical influences and progression, schools of expression, social change, fashions and scarcity.
Chapters on early lithographs, maps, engravings, photographs and Maori artefacts as well as practical information, make this a valuable reference book to art in New Zealand.
The comprehensive text is supplemented by 16 pages of colour illustrations.
