Old Masters Week starts tomorrow in NYC.

The major auction houses have Old Masters sales scheduled over the next few days, so if you are in the market for a painting, drawing, print, or even a sculpture or a decorative object from the 14th to 19th centuries, now will be your chance.


Forbes has a great article pointing out what a bargain Old Masters sell for when you compare the prices to contemporary high-selling artists like Warhol or Richter.

Sotheby's will offer a set of Old Masters drawings of over 100 works estimated at $2.5 million. That is clearly a good investment.
