The Art Collector’s Handbook – The Definitive Guide to Acquiring and Owning Art by Mary Rozell
The Buying & Selling Of Art | Advice from a Collector
Rozell comes from an art collector family and has collected for over 25 years. Her collection has been exhibited worldwide. In this book, she tells you how to start collecting independently or find an expert as an advisor or consultant if you already have a collection that you want to grow from small to extensive collections.
This book covers everything from the history of collecting, how to appreciate art, and how to start your collection. In addition, you’ll learn the difference between different types of art and what their prices might be like. The resource section includes all of the books and sites Rozell mentions.
Learning about the art world can seem elusive. It shouldn’t be.
Building your art bookshelf is a forever-ongoing process. I’ve included an Amazon link to help you find the right next book for you, but you can always purchase at your local bookstore in person or at bookshop.org.
The books are organized into categories. The First Books are for those brand-new to the art world. More seasoned collectors can jump ahead to dive deeper into specific threads.
