Old Masters 14th - 18th century
It would be easy to forget but, in fact, today’s ‘Old Masters’ were 'contemporary artists' in their own times! Their technical and artistic skills have secured them a sense of ‘timelessness’ throughout the centuries. Because of our present global ‘helicopter view’ we are able to select unique quality with a capital ‘A’ from the regular and more decorative artefacts. And together with the ‘rarity’ of old works of art these essentials will determine price levels. In general, the value of these ‘predecessors’ should in fact be higher than most of today’s contemporary art. However, simply because of social media and its global impact the opposite seems to happen. In order to relativize the heritage of mankind we recommend to focus on the best quality of the past thousand years and enjoy our own taste while understanding past generations.
