Moderated by Naomi Potter

A recent study by the Stanford Graduate School of Business: News summed up a question concerning the opportunities of art as an asset: “In short, buy paintings if you like looking at them,” a team of economists advised, summarizing the latest research on the subject. “You can hope that your children will sell one or more of them later for a gain – but paintings are primarily aesthetic investments, not financial ones.” This panel will discuss both sides of this economic and aesthetic relationship, with a focus on trends in the art market, personal taste, and what it means to build a collection.
