Art Collecting: A Beginners Guide
Art collection is a very stimulating and inspiring hobby for all. It isn‟t just for the rich and
famous, but even regular everyday people too. There are various forms of art that you can
choose from, especially since art‟s definition can greatly vary from one person to another.
However, it doesn‟t really matter whatever its form is, you‟re the one to make the call on
which is attractive and how much are you willing to spend for such piece.
To Go For Prints Or Originals?
In the art world, some people may look down on others due to their different tastes in picking
out art. For instance, there are those people who only buy original works and would never
even consider buying prints. However, you should take note that if you‟re just starting to
collect art and is doing this for enjoyment then originals are not really necessary to buy,
especially if they‟re way out of your budget.
There is really nothing wrong with buying prints. In fact, these are one superb way to have
framed art that would look lovely on your wall, just like how an original would look, but at a
way lower price.
Although here, you would not be having the same texture as to the original work; since
originals usually show dimension and texture, while prints won‟t. However, well printed
artworks are not settling of course.
In fact, a lot of art collectors have art prints by different artists, which were fairly bought
inexpensively from the Internet, galleries and art fairs. Amazingly, such pieces still look
tasteful and classy, instead of cheap looking like what most people expect.

get somebody else to do it for you. Generally, you can find frames in a vast price range,
starting from cheaper metal frames to ornate and hand carved wooden frames costing you a
With regard to using mats, which is another way of framing your picture inside its frame by
the use of papers or illustration boards, you should take note that such could detract your
print. If you don‟t know how to frame, then you should get your piece and get it framed first.
While doing so, observe how they‟d offer you different mats and frame styles.
You don‟t have to hasten up when picking out the mat you want to use. In fact, you should
take your time and deliberate on it carefully, since the mat and frame color combinations can
have a great effect on how well or bad your artwork would look. You should also consider
how the frame would fit-in in whatever place you‟ll put it, like your home or your office.
If you want a clean and contemporary look, it‟s recommended that you use the Nielsen
brushed metal frames, which are not only cheap but are still elegant looking too. These
usually come in different colors. Nevertheless, it‟s safe to go for black or bronze.
