Does Art Reproduction have a Value?
Does Art Reproduction have a value?
I get a lot of emails delivered into my inbox from people asking about art reproductions. What they are, the process, copyright questions etc, so I thought I’d do a series of posts on the most frequently asked questions I receive regarding art reproduction. Funnily enough, a lot of emails have to do with valuations on art reproductions and if art reproduction has a value. This is an interesting question. Artists have been painting fine art reproductions of paintings for centuries. For example, Pieter Brueghel’s oldest son (Pieter Brueghel the Younger 1564 -1636) painted art reproductions of his father’s work. His art reproduction of his father’s painting ‘Flemish Proverbs’ just sold recently at Christie’s London for £1,721,250. If you’re talking in monetary terms if art reproduction has a value, then I think it does. I’ve had quite a lot of auction houses phone me up asking me to commission replicas of artists that they know are in vogue and are selling well as they know we’d all benefit from it. However, I think art reproduction has a higher value in making people happy. The testimonials we keep on receiving and from my own experience of walking into my house and seeing my favourite pieces of art gracing my walls makes me extremely happy and proud of my home. Try putting a value on that!
