The Butler Goode Gallery specialises in bringing contemporary European and World art to the Australian market, offering an exciting and diverse portfolio of well established to up and coming artists.
Unfortunately due to the great distance between Australia and Europe, Australia has not always been fortunate enough to experience the enormous wealth and diversity of artwork Europe and the rest of the world has to offer, until now. The Butler Goode Gallery brings Europe to Australia, and offers a fresh selection of new work to consider , offering an opportunity to own and invest in artwork far more unique and harder to come by than the same artists work that can be found here all over the country.
Buying into quality European art gives the collector an individual statement piece to boast in their home or office space as well as a good investment for your money due to the limited availability of the artwork in Australia. Noting the top auction house sales figures, the Contemporary European art market continues to appreciate due to global demand.
The latest record breaking sale of European art at auction is the recent New York Sotheby's sale of Pablo Picosso's "Nude, Green Leaves and Bust," fetching a monumental US$106.5 million dollars on the 4th May 2010. Record breaking prices are still being acheived today which confirms that the art collecting world only goes from strength to strength.
The winter and summer sales in 2007 boast incredibly impressive Contemporary art sales, resulting in one of the most significant years that the art market has ever seen.
Sotheby's and Christie's alone each sold about $US6 Billion dollars of art and Bonham's also totaled $US590 Million in sales - a 25% increase from 2006.
Globally, fine art has proved to secure its position as one of the most popular investments of passion. The current market even during a global financial crisis is still reflecting regular growth patterns that were established between 1998 and 2006.
Drawing on an indepth career in the European art market within the most prestigious auction houses and galleries in London for the past decade, the Butler Goode Gallery is confident when advising on the best options for available European art work currently available from the Butler Goode Gallery.For further information regarding European and World art, investment art and art consultancy services please contact the gallery.
