What is the value of art?

The value of art is a broad subject, and one argued from every direction – whether art is political, emotional, passionate, observational or reflective.

We all have a different take on what art means to us, and which artworks, artists and movements are the most “important”. We asked our Chairman Lord Gowrie who has worked in both the public art sector, as Minister of Culture and the private sector as Chairman of Sotheby’s to tell us his thoughts on the value of art. For another point of view we spoke to our Managing Director Guy Jennings who has worked with some of the world’s most passionate collectors.
