On Drawings and Art

I am not one who is into other arts except modern music. But writing about other forms of art forces me to broaden my knowledge on it. I recently learned that any kind of drawings that were produced before 1900 while modern drawings are the ones that have been created between 1900 and 1949. Drawings that were created from 1950 until the present time are called contemporary drawings.

When you need to fill your art storage you can visit an art auction to increase your collection. However, keep in mind that there are many contemporary drawings listed in art auctions that never get a bidder. One reason for this is that the starting bid is set so high that it discourages interest. Maybe because owners want to preserve the drawing and let time make it more mature. Antique drawings in art auctions are ones that garner a lot of interest. So if you are looking to increase your art collection, you should prepare enough funds for antique art auctions because they are the ones that are quite liquid in the market.

For your storage needs, visit for an wide variety of art needs that fits your needs and budget. You can also download a brochure from their web site to learn more about them.
