Collecting genuine art - investing
Helpful information for collectors who are art lovers, that acquire works of art for the pleasure they give, rather than art-speculators. We recommend purchasing what you love, the best you can afford and the most typical artwork of an artist you admire.
Galeria Aniela provides comprehensive information to own clients and valuation for artworks sold by the gallery, generally at no cost. If you decide to sell your art we are happy to sell it through the gallery otherwise, we are able to place your artwork for sale at one of the major auctions usually at the better selling price.
If you purchased your art somewhere else
(auction) and require our assistance or
for the purchased item,
fees are imposed for our services at the discretion of the institution
($250 per hour plus GST). Fees charged may be rebated if you
decide to purchase a work of art from us:
Home Visits - We are art specialists and available to visit you to conduct obligation-free appraisals. Visits are charged based on the scope and diversity of your collection. Fees charged may be rebated if your work of art is sold through our gallery.
For the seller, auctions do not necessarily sustain the price levels and do not have the same interest to protect a market as galleries and art dealers have. Dealers and Galleries are one of the last bastions where serious connoisseurship meets commercialism.
Auction Houses are "the secondary market" selling items on behalf of the vendor. Buyer's premium applies to the Hammer Price generally at 22% including (GST) Goods and Services Tax.
· Auctions are unable provide assurance for the absolute authenticity of the item, they take what they can get to sell. Buyers are responsible to make their own enquiries and investigations on provenance before bidding on any item at auction or otherwise making an offer to purchase.
§ Inexperienced buyers commonly believe that they save themselves gallery dealer’s mark-ups by buying at auctions failing to perceive that Dealers-Galleries mark-ups offer buyers services and facilities and range of services auctions unable to match.

§ Auctions are unable to provide research for items they sell nor any detailed enquiries with respect to provenance on each item. Auctions may list history of ownership only for the very important art, and other relevant information.
§ On request, Auctions can provide Condition Report that is a statement of opinion and should not be relied upon as a statement of definitive fact.
§ Auctions only show you part of picture of the artist’s work. Auctions cannot really develop any aesthetic shaping to their sales unlike Dealers and Galleries who present buyers with a variety of interests not represented in the auction market. Auctions follow taste selling what is fashionable at the time, they may extend but do not create taste.
If you purchase a work of art at auctions and require us to research your item the fees are imposed for our services at the discretion of the institution. Fees charged may be rebated if you purchase a work of art from us (by Jamie Boyd, Arthur Boyd or David Boyd - for the Boyd research or by the artist you enquire about).
Inexperienced buyers commonly believe that they save themselves gallery dealer’s mark-ups by buying at auctions failing to perceive that Dealers-Galleries mark-ups offer buyers services and facilities and range of services auction houses unable to match.

If you work from home (have an office space) or own your business then your office environment has to be attractive. This includes business and workplace locations. Artwork is a wonderful addition to any space and art purchase can ease your Tax bill. An office is an environment that legitimately requires at least some sort of artwork on the premises. Beyond enhancing almost any type of decor, artwork can be a viable and profitable investment. The addition of the artwork to your office space makes your office environment healthier and more attractive.
You can also ask your accountant to depreciate your art purchase as a legitimate tax deduction the same as the purchase of your office equipment, furniture and related items for your office or workplace. They are expenditures that qualify for a tax deduction. In some cases an art purchase can be considered a business expense or a write off.
At the moment there is NO specific monetary standard to the amount of money spent on artwork that is intended to be used as a tax write off. A typical business owner can spend reasonable amounts of money on artwork for the workplace and expect to be able to take advantage of a comparable tax write off.
Buying and Selling Artwork
There are instances in which a person who buys or sells artwork can take advantage of tax deductions and write offs. The most commonly used write off related to artwork involves a deduction when a person sells a work of art that has dropped in value since the initial purchase. The seller will qualify for a tax deduction or write off based on the different in value of the artwork.
Taking a Loan to purchase art can reduce your tax bill
If you are contemplating buying artwork, you might wonder whether you want to reduce your tax bill by taking a LOAN. The interest of your loan to purchase art is tax deductible (same as loans to acquire shares or a property investment) and your Expenses related to your loan may be claimed.
Additionally if you decide to rent your art then your expenses may be claimed from the date the art investment first became available for rent.

The following elements can affect the value of a work of art:
1. The artistic merit of the work (it is a museum picture or private collector's picture?)
2. It is important and the most representative of the artist?
3. The art historical importance of the work can affect value (did the work have an influence or has it been influenced?)
4. Documentation and provenance qualifies the work's pedigree and influences value.
5. Value can be affected by the nature attribution the work has (a scholar's opinion, and which scholar and a contemporary attribution).
6. The artwork condition, the title, and subject of the work can influence value (paintings of commentaries & portraits of old men are difficult to place).
7. Style and rarity decides whether the work is scarce or otherwise.
8. Value is created by reputation of the seller and determined competition for the work. Demand and supply along with the artist standing (international / National) affect the work value.
9. An illustration of the work has an effect on its value the work becomes more precious. Illustrated works of art raise more interest and are able to fetch record prices for the artist.
10. More attractive, ascetically pleasing works are more desirable and also, works with more attention to details, from the period of the artist acclaim generally command higher prices.
Art history has the essential role of supplying attribution, establishing opinion and authenticating what is offered on the market. Additional value to the contemporary art collector is the satisfaction some would call it inverted snobbery.
The adventurous collector of contemporary art with sharp eyes earns price as does any collector who anticipates and buys what he loves, rather than follow the fashion. Obviously different buyers buy different works of different values. Like being well dressed, the value of art sometimes has less to do with the monetary value.
When you buy a work of art you contribute to not only your own wellbeing but also artists can make a living with their creations and art stays alive to tell its story to the future generations.
Many creators have concluded that art extends life.
