  1. Is there a reason you do not include
    Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine in your listings?

  2. Dear Jim,

    Thanks for your comment. There are so many great magazines out there that I had to leave some out that were either less relevant to art investors or the information they provided was already covered in another publication. Fine Art Connoisseur is a great magazine and is definately worth reading but it just didn’t fit in my list.

  3. Ulp! You left out Contemporary Art Gallery Magazine.

  4. Hi Gizelle,

    Thanks for pointing out the Contemporary Art Gallery Magazine which is also a fantastic art magazine and a great resource for art investors and collectors.

  5. Very informative article! It is difficult to find the answers when searching for investors. I have gone so far as to write the Pope for support in this massive religious painting I have been creating for the past 11 years…my masterpiece! My personal investment has exceeded $200,000.00 and a massive sacrifice of my personal life yet I am prepared to continue until the release of this painting in December 2010. I envision massive income return and a sacrifice which will change my life, make history and change some things we thought we knew about art, religion and politics.
    I had solicited a few corporations but prehaps was somewhat unprepared or lacking marketing principles in my approach initially. Just as I state I am not religious but learning to make my own decisions, I am also learning the ropes as I go when it comes to marketing a masterpiece. It is hard work, a full time job all in itself!
