Art World News…..turning a $15 investment into six figures….

Calder

As a reader I hope you caught the posts showing people who purchased great works of art from Goodwill or garage sales. The well known artist Alexander Calder,  also designed around 1,000 pieces of jewelry over his lifetime.

A lady purchased a necklace years ago in 2005 at a flea market. Then years later she attended a jewelry show at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. A foundation certified that the piece the lady bought was actually included in a show at the New York Modern Museum of Art in 1943.

The piece of jewelry will be going for auction at the end of September and is expected to bring well into six figures!

Not bad for a $15 investment!

Always keep those eyes open for a great work of art!
