The Decisive Factor In The Price Of Oil Painting

- Jul 16 2018 - When buying oil paintings, we usually consider the price of oil paintings. Then, do you know what the average price of oil paintings is determined? Let’s take a look at it with Hengmei Palace Xiaobian: According to economic principles, value determines price and price is affected by Supply and demand impact. The price of oil painting is determined by the various intrinsic values of oil painting on the one hand, and is affected by supply and demand on the other hand.
What determines the artistic value of oil painting?


Artistic value depends on the art cycle, and the art cycle is defined by the unique value of the artwork itself. The embodiment of contemporary art value is different from the artistic value of the romantic period and the classic period. In the embodiment of artistic value: in some periods, more attention is paid to the authenticity of art rather than to classical beauty; in some periods, the true feelings of the artist are first placed.


First, the measure of artistic value in a period is influenced by many factors. These factors include economics, technology, history, culture, and religion. The art cycle is determined by different artistic value measures. The measure of artistic value determines the different art cycles. Unlike art value, market value determines the value of a piece of art in the market for cash exchange. To put it simply, how much do we expect consumers to spend on this piece of art? From a macro perspective, market value and artistic value are mutually infiltrated and mutually reinforcing.
The market price of paintings and calligraphy works follows the principle that “things are rare”. In the calligraphy and painting collection market, the price of ancient famous paintings and calligraphy is relatively high. The reason is that ancient paintings and paintings are non-renewable. In the long history of hundreds of years and even thousands of years, the works that can be preserved are very rare. For oil painting, the painter of the birthplace and the pioneering painter are very scarce.
Second, in addition to the original artistic value of painting and calligraphy itself, we also saw that the artwork itself was actually used. The value of art is not only virtual (incomprehensible), but its core value must be useful.
Changes in the price of calligraphy and painting often vary from person to person. The general situation is that after the death of the painter and painter, his works are higher than the living price, especially the more famous works, the higher the appreciation rate. When many famous people are alive, although the works are also very valuable, they can be re-created after all. After the death, the number of works in the world can no longer increase, so the price increase is normal. Like Zhang Daqian, Wu Changshuo, Xu Beihong, Huang Binhong, Qi Baishi and other masters. Their works are more valuable after their death than before, and I believe that they will become more and more valuable in the future.
Of course, when some painters are alive, their works may not be worth much, or few people care about them, so that the painter has lost his way, but after he died, he slowly recovered his money and became famous. This is the case with Wu Zhen and Yi Shou, who are like the Yuan Dynasty. This is also the case in foreign countries. For example, Van Gogh’s works are not noticeable during his lifetime, and the painter is poor and the works are astronomical.
Third, changes in the price of paintings and calligraphy are also related to seasonality. Judging from the transaction price of paintings and paintings on the auction market, the prices are generally relatively high in the spring and autumn, while the summer prices are stable and the winter prices are low. The reason is that there are more large-scale art auctions in the spring and autumn, and the prices of paintings and paintings often reach the high point of the year under the pursuit of investors. The winter price is low, mainly because the winter is at the end of the year, the number of customers is small, and the turnover rate is low.
