Ellerman House Art Gallery – Jane Visser Architects
1/ The Art Aficionados
These people collect Art for their own sake, with a high level of knowledge and connoisseurship. They want to express their passion, express their personality, develop contacts and friendships through Art. They consider the reduced profitability of investing in Art is more than offset by the aesthetic pleasure they derive from the possession of artworks.
2/ The Traditionalists
This second group collects mostly to continue a family tradition. They often prefer paintings and Contemporary Art. They show a particular interest in kind of traditional collectables such as furniture, jewelry, clocks, watches, ceramics, porcelain, and wine. They are discreet collectors and have often been collecting for more than 20 years.
3/ The Investors
These Art Collectors buy Art as a status symbol and a commercial investment with a lot of financial expectations. They are energetic in the Art scene and engaging in the Art circle, and often contributing to public museums. They want to display status in the process of immortalizing their name.
