Discover top tips from Art Life Gallery’s head curator for buying art as a gift this festive season
Art lasts a lifetime:
Unlike the other gifts that you receive, a painting never goes out of fashion. It will always adorn the walls of your home or office and add to its surroundings. Whenever you’ll look at the artwork, it’d remind you of the occasion and of course, love and affection.
While choosing a painting to gift to a person, you need to consider the recipient’s tastes, hobbies, beliefs etc. Let’s remember that art is often bought because of its emotional appeal and can be highly revealing of someone’s taste and personality. If you buy an artwork keeping all this in mind, it’ll ensure that your recipient truly loves the work and he’ll feel oh-so special.
A joy forever:
When you gift an artwork to somebody, it becomes a part of their collection. A beautiful painting is a joy forever and whenever the person will look at that painting, it’ll uplift his mood.
When you buy a painting, it becomes an asset and its value never converts into nothingness. So what does that mean for the painting you bought as a gift for someone? It may increase in worth and may prove a worthy asset down the line. But remember: The rarity of a work of art is what gives it value, so an original will always be worth more than a reproduction. The durability and eternal beauty of original art make it something worth spending money on.
One normally thinks of original as referring to a unique work that the artist made with his own hands. But the term also refers to multiple originals as in the case of etchings and lithographs. So there are two kinds of original art : one-of-a-kind original works of art and multiple originals. Try picking artwork that not everyone has. For example, you can browse and choose the best from the wide range of artworks available at the Art Life Gallery. Finally, along with the gift, don’t forget to include a note that explains it, or if you’re giving it to them personally, let them know what prompted you to think of them. After all, art is always better when you know the story behind it.
