Corporate Art Collections

From the Corporate Art Collecting Series

By Edward J Sheldrick and Pinto Rai Dhir

One might assume that the main benefit of building up, maintaining and expanding a corporate art collection would be the yield of profit. In other words, a way to diversify and perhaps safe guard one’s assets. This conjures up imagery of precious artworks being kept in storage in warehouses and vaults and when the time is right sold at a profit perhaps fuelling future acquisitions. Alas, this is a very narrow minded way of thinking. In fact, in many cases the escalating value is often a by-product or an added bonus attached to a corporation’s art collection but this is certainly by no means a given.
