Fact vs. Fiction Archive

Fiction: Investing in art is a good way to get rich.

Fact: While art can be a viable investment alternative in certain cases, you probably won't be able to sell it at Sotheby's to fund your retirement. Buy art because you like it, not because you think it's going to make you rich. Your collection should be a reflection of your tastes; ignore trends, and trust your best instincts. Be sure to buy pieces you love, because you may be looking at them for a very long time!
