Product Information

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

LETS EXAMINE A RECENT PAINTING SALE AT BONHAMS,ISLAMIC & INDIAN ART ONLINE SALE,19TH NOVEMBER-4TH DECEMBER,2019.

IN THIS INSTANCE IT IS OF A MAHARAJAH,DETAILS YOU CAN SEE IN THE IMAGES. MADE A PREMIUM INCLUSIVE £5,312.00 GBP. 
WHEN YOU LOOK AT ITS DETAILS,IT IS RATHER CRUDELY PAINTED NO DEPTH TO THE FACE,HANDS ARE WEAK AS IS THE SLIPPERS,THERE IS NO HEIGHTENING WITH GOLD AND GENERALLY LACKS DEPTH IN ALL AREAS. THE EMBLEM ON THE ROBE IS ALSO WEAK AND POORLY PAINTED AS WELL AS HAVING LOSSES.
IT'S CONDITION IS NOT GREAT EITHER,WITH PAINT LOSSES,CRACKING OF PAPER AND RUBBING OF PAINT SURFACE.
REASONABLE SIZE AT JUST UNDER 14 INCHES BY 10 INCHES.(I HAVE BIGGER,FAR SUPERIOR PAINTINGS) 
I HAVE MANY MAHARAJAH PAINTINGS LISTED AT HALF THE PRICE AND THREE TIMES THE QUALITY ! 

DO YOU THE READER THINK IT IS WORTH WHAT WAS PAID FOR IT ? AND IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME ESPECIALLY IN LONDON SALEROOMS. I HAVE JUST GIVEN A FEW EXAMPLES OF SOME WHAT I CALL SILLY BUYING BEHAVIOUR. I SIMPLY FAIL TO SEE THIS PAINTING AT OVER FIVE THOUSAND POUNDS THAT WAS PAID FOR IT.

ALSO I ASK THE QUESTION IF I HAD OFFERED IT ON THIS WEBSITE FOR £2.500 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 HOW BUYERS SEEM TO RATE ONE PAINTING OVER ANOTHER WITH NO REAL REGARD FOR PAINTING QUALITY OR CONDITION AND IN RELATION TO A "FAIR PRICE" PAID 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.
​​​​​​​THEY DO NOT LIKE BUYING IN "COLD BLOOD" AS WE CALL IT IN THE TRADE BUT INSTEAD WOULD PREFER THE CLICKING OF BUTTONS IN FRONT OF A SCREEN OF SOME SORTS WITHOUT ACTUALLY KNOWING MUCH ABOUT WHAT THEY BUY.
