    Art pricing

    Just browsing through some of the google searches I see some art with rediculous prices. Well art is art and lets not try to be too negative.

    This one for 12,000

    This one for a grand, Looks good but still a bit way too pricey IMO

    This one for 75 bucks and someone bought it

    This one I would'nt mind owning and seems right on target for 50 bucks

    This one is nice and maybe a little pricey(IMO) but nothing crazy

    550 bucks for this one. Well let's just say I have no comment on this one. As I'm not one to criticize negatively.

    Now most of these are prints and I can maybe see high prices for an original oil painting as long as it has good artistic quality. Now some of these are missing depth greatly but still have a steep price on it. Then there are some that have good quality but just way too crazy of a price.

    What I'm really wondering is how often does some of those high thousands and into the ten thousand category actually mke a sale.

    I know an artist known by the name of "Don" I dont think you'l find any of his work on the net but he is good must of his art went over 4k and he sold loads.
    He had a pretty good thing going selling his art to high class people of Italy.
    I was amazed how many pieces people actualy bought ( but his stuff was much better than the preview's you posted )

    Only 1 reply in 24 hours. Someone here has to have some kind of a good explanation on why these drawings have such a high pricetags on them.

    I thought it was self-evident that;

    A) artwork is worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it.
    B) artwork's price has nothing to do with it's quality
