This will come as no surprise to many people involved in the high end art market. Fine Art has been an appreciable asset for a long time, even during economic crisis, war, and civil unrest. Art has more than just intrinsic value, and as appraisers, we know this very well. It is no surprise to that the art market beat out the stock market last year as an investment category. Unlike the stock market, there is a very tangible limited supply, and great art will always be in demand.
