The Fine Art Investment Group of America recognized an opportunity to bid on an American painting whose value was broadly unrecognized at auction, but could command a much greater price privately. The painting was for sale at auction; however, it was poorly photographed, badly framed and not prominently advertised. The Group’s experts saw an opportunity to create value at the right price. The Group purchased the painting at auction for $37,000.00 had it re-paired, cleaned, and reframed, and successfully sold it privately six months later for $114,000 USD.
