A successful New Jersey art dealer has just launched a unique franchise: For only $10,000, you can help West Highland Art Brokers find and sell Van Goghs, Monets, Wyeths and other valuable art.
"Despite what you see on the Antiques Roadshow, no one is likely to find a painting worth millions of dollars," observed gallery owner and art expert Les Fox, author of the forthcoming book "Anyone Can Own A Masterpiece."
"On the other hand, exciting art turns up all the time in private collections and estates. An American artist named Guy Wiggins painted thousands of New York City snow scenes in the 1920's. At first glance, they don't look very valuable. But they regularly bring $100,000 at Sotheby's, and one recently sold for $374,000. Most people would probably pass it up at a garage sale for $100. Many fakes by Guy Wiggins exist. But I see real ones get discovered all the time."
West Highland Art Brokers offers art collectors and art heirs the option of being an auction partner. Fox buys paintings for a fair price, then auctions them with Sotheby's, Christie's or any of 20 other respected auction houses for a 50-50 profit split on anything over what he pays. "The seller can't lose," he says. "If the painting doesn't sell for enough money, we absorb the loss. If it sells for more, the original owner still benefits."
Complete details of the West Highland Art Broker franchise can be seen on Fox's website at http://www.AmericanArtAdvisor.com along with the type of art he handles. "You don't have to know anything about art," says Fox. "For $10,000 I guarantee to make you an expert in one year. The franchise includes an art reference library and a an authentic 1920's painting by a listed American artist worth $2,500."
