We've bought several pieces of art (some original, some lithographs, some hand embelished prints) on different cruises because we loved them, not
because we ever expect them to be worth a million $$$
They were all low priced and by artist's that you've probably never heard of
, but we enjoy them.
pay what those people in the article paid, for ANY art!
We've also never heard anyone claim that the artwork will increase in value. In fact, they specifically say that it probably won't. It's correct that the Art Auction is not a "true" auction, but that's explained, too.
