Egon, I don't know how they prize / price their paintings.

I price mine at what I would regard fair if I were shopping. Only a small tourist gallery though, and have sold quite a few because of the fair price. Not cheap but fair. Won't mention the excellent work :lol:

Let those artists go with their fantasies. But who knows? They may get lucky :rolleyes: It's all a spin of the dice. different people like different things.

Egon, maybe our problem is we haven't been dead long enough!

My wife says the top one is "too blurry".

They may have been priced that way, but did anyone actually spend the money to taken them home?

:wave: JJ I dont say the name because I didnt ask for permission to post it :wave:

Dave thats the point :evil: :evil: :evil:

BTW I have a nephew - he had studid Art in Vienna and is selling all his works via a "Gallerist " by contract - the Gallerist takes more than 50%

Better no Gallery and fair prize and "enjoy you life ";) :thumbsup: :music:

One reason for the price may simply be that the artist is no longer here--so there's now a fixed supply of his or her art--there'll be no new ones coming down the pipe!
