Collecting Strategies

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

Americans, particularly, often take a more "encyclopedic" approach to building collections of one or two pieces by a broad range of artists. An "in-depth" strategy is often associated with a European tradition of collecting, where emphasis is 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 collector's passion for the ideas reflected in the art and the process of building a collection of aesthetic and economic value.
