WHY LOW QTY LIMITED EDITION

 

BECAUSE: Scarcity increases value and demand, high quantity diminishes demand and value.

 

For an art acquisition, final decision should equally be driven by the aesthetic appreciation and the investment standpoint. ONLY a limited edition run of less than fifty Artist proof (all sizes & finishes combined) should ever be considered.

 

WHY?

 

Because de facto, it's THE standard practice in the serious and real world of galleries, collectors & art auction houses. 

 

For this reason, ALL MALTESTE EDITIONS ARTWORKS carry a STRICT & ONLY production limit of 38 Artist proof or less for all sizes & finishes combined. Once a signed and numbered artwork has reached its production limit, it is retired and will never be produced again

 

It's very important to remember that a limited edition of 100, 225,450 or even 995 units are not limited edition but merely a high end poster business and as an investment, will have absolutely NO reseale value ever. A large number limited edition is NOT scarce enough to appeal to a true art lover collector or investor who MUST have something original and rare if not unique. 

 


AS A CONCLUSION, THERE ARE NO GUARANTE THAT ANT ARTWORK CAN INCREASE IN VALUE OVERTIME, BUT AS A CERTAINTY, IF ARTWORKS ARE NOT LIMITED UNDER 50 AP OR LESS, THEY WILL NEVER APPRECIATE IN VALUE BUT MOST PROBABLY DECREASE IN VALUE OVER TIME.

 

FINAL NOTE: The most important question: Is the artist working for the interest of the client or primarily his own pocket? If the Artist Proof Edition number of an artist is low; you have your answer
