Collecting Strategies

There are two primary collecting strategies, which are both valid:

Americans, particularly, have often taken a more "encyclopedic" approach building collections of one or two pieces by a broader range of artists. An "in-depth" strategy is often associated with a European tradition of collecting where emphasis has been put on developing a strong, core collection, providing an aesthetic or intellectual basis on which to build.

Ultimately the most critical attribute in building any collection is the collectorís passion for the ideas reflected in the art and the process of building a collection of aesthetic and economic value.
