Chicago Public Radio Takes a Look
Gianofer Fields of Chicago Public Radio’s City Room looks at a variety of art dealers in the Windy City. She ends with Christie’s but begins with Leslie Hindman of Hindman Auctioneers:
people who are in the business and serious about the business don’t like to use the word investment because it’s cheesy, to be honest with you. If you know what you’re doing, you can buy works of art as an investment, but you really need to know that you’re doing and you need to buy the best of the best. And you know just buying anything isn’t an investment. It’s not a term people like to use.
Robyn Farrell Roulo is a fine art specialist for Hindman Auctioneers.
FARRELL–ROULO: Good art is always going to sell and buyers, collectors of art are always going to buy. And that’s really what I think will stay true. It’s more than a decorative object. It reflects them, the status and I think that’s something that going to hold true regardless of the economy.
