Just after Modern Art, Contemporary Art covers all the works of art realized after 1945 or by an artist still alive, what ever the style and the esthetic practice. It nevertheless mainly concerns visual arts. Opened to the imagination, far from the precise representations, it allows everyone to interpret in one’s way, without any right or wrong perceptions.
Very often synonymous to a “coup de coeur” purchase, it remains an investment particularly efficient on the long term.
Paintings, pictures, sculptures…the mediums are numerous for a clientele willing to get a refined interior decoration. But if contemporary art is very attractive for individuals and private collectors, it is also very popular among companies, museums, galleries and publicly founded organizations.
The market gives the opportunity to buy art works from famous artists and easy to obtain for a public of amateurs and collectors.
It sometimes offers nice surprises like the anniversary auction of August 15, 2019 during which a bronze with green patina titled «Cercle, 2009» signed by the Italian sculptor Bruno ROMEDA (1933-2017) flew at 100400€ on an estimate of 19000€ to 20000€.
Contemporary Art is both a speculative and artistic purchase.
