Product Information

THIS IS MY OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW THE IDIOTIC AND BIASED IDEALS OF THE ART WORLD. (INDIAN MINIATURE PAINTING BUYERS)

IN IMAGE 1 WE SEE AN EPISODE FROM THE RAMAYANA OFFERED AT BONHAMS INDIAN ART SALE BACK IN OCTOBER 2004. ESTIMATED AT JUST £800 TO £1200,IT REMAINED UNSOLD AS YOU CAN SEE.
FAST FORWARD TO  A PROVINCIAL SALEROOM,27TH SEPTEMBER,2019,IMAGE 2.
HERE WE SEE THE SAME PAINTING FOURTEEN YEARS LATER AND EVEN IN THE DESCRIPTION REFERENCE IS GIVEN TO THE BONHAMS 2004 SALE.
MADE AS YOU CAN SEE £2300 PLUS OVER 27% BUYERS PREMIUM ON TOP OF THE HAMMER PRICE.

SO MY POINT IS,IS THIS PAINTING WORTH AS THE BONHAMS ESTIMATE SUGGESTED £800 TO £1200 OR OVER £3,000 GBP THAT WAS PAID THE SECOND TIME AROUND. YOU COULD ARGUE THAT IN FOURTEEN YEARS PRICES HAVE GONE UP. BUT ACCORDING TO SO CALLED "BUYERS" WHO CONTACT ME IT WOULD SEEM THEY WANT PAINTINGS FOR NOTHING WHETHER IT IS A BETTER PAINTING OR OTHERWISE.

ALSO I ASK THE QUESTION IF I HAD OFFERED IT ON THIS WEBSITE FOR £1000 I WONDER HOW MANY YEARS IT WOULD OF TAKEN TO SELL IT,IF I COULD OF SOLD IT AT ALL ?

MY MAIN POINT IS ALSO THAT THERE SEEMS TO BE A LUDICROUS DIVERGANCE OF OPINIONS AS TO "VALUES" OF THESE PAINTINGS AND I SUSPECT THAT NOT A LOT OF BUYERS KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING ANYWAY.

THE OTHER THOUGHT IS THAT EVERYBODY SEEMS TO WANT ITEMS WHEN IN AUCTIONS,BUT RARELY BOTHER TO INQUIRE ON DEALERS SITES OR OTHERWISE. THAT WE MAY ACTUALLY HAVE VERY GOOD PAINTINGS AT VERY REASONABLE PRICES. (I NOW DO NOT SHOW ANY WHAT I CONSIDER TO BE VERY GOOD PAINTINGS (VALUABLE OVER 3K) AT ALL UNLESS I GET A SPECIFIC INQUIRY)
