I was walking to class the other day and along the route there is a small art gallery. Usually I glance at what is visible in the windows and keep walking. This time, I saw a painting that mesmerized me. It stopped me in my tracks and I haven’t been able to get it off my mind since. I went into the gallery to ask about the piece and the fellow I spoke with said it’s an “enhanced serograph.” I’ve found the definition for it on the web, but haven’t found any advisory information on buying something like this. It’s a numbered piece of 250 that comes with a certificate, is museum-quality framed, etc.
I know nothing about art. If anyone can give me some advise about buying a piece like this before I drop $4,000 on it, I would really be grateful! I’m not looking for an investment or anything that will be worth more money in the future. I’m just wondering if this sounds like it’s outrageously overpriced…
If you need more information to let me know I’m stupid, it’s called Chrysalis and the artist is Debra Sievers.
I could think of no better place than a Dopers thread to get advice!
