Fine Art Investment Group of America client (Julie H.) highly recommended purchasing a piece by an artist Sharon Hourigan B. 1957 whom she saw as having significant growth prospects, but who was not yet globally recognized. Upon suggestion, The Group undertook a thorough due diligence analysis of the artist to decide whether to buy, and if so, How much? The Group bought a 12.5 x 8” inch oil on board in 2011 for $4500.00 – The Group was able to sell it 9 months later, at the height of the contemporary art market, for just over $35,000 USD –That’s expertise!
