Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - TALKING POINTS -

The col­lec­tor and pa­tron Valeria Napoleone, Martina Ba­tovic, the UK di­rec­tor of Dorotheum auc­tion house, and Lisa Schiff, the art ad­viser for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foun­da­tion, share their

in­sights into how to build a col­lec­tion.

1 ‘Col­lect­ing is per­sonal – you should only buy art that is mean­ing­ful to you. Seek out pieces you are pas­sion­ate about.’ vn

2 ‘Take some time learn­ing and look­ing. Don’t ask some­body what you should buy. Slow down and you’ll find your eye.’ ls

3 ‘Never un­der­es­ti­mate the power of art that is on show for free. It’s equally im­por­tant to see good and bad art, be­cause the more you look, the more you start to see the dif­fer­ence and un­der­stand what res­onates with you.’
