Chinese market pushes up value of red paintings

According to an article in the Telegraph today paintings which feature the colour red are likely to rise in value thanks to the booming Chinese market.  According to a Sotheby’s spokesperson

“Red is the most emotive colour in art. It’s powerful, it’s lucky in many nations – for example for the Chinese. We’ve often seen a price correlation in that red paintings have performed better than other works”.

The colour, which is already known in the industry to raise the value of paintings, is considered lucky in the growing Asian markets.

We’re hoping that Serena’s latest glass art painting will sell rather quickly then…

I would like to say that this was as a result of us having our finger firmly on the pulse of trends in the art world… but it was more just a lucky coincidence!
