Build a Theme for Your Home Art Collection
It’s one thing to invest in one piece of original art, but what about adding a second and third canvas to your ever-growing home art collection?
According to Soboleva, it’s important to choose a theme to guide your selection of artwork. “A theme gives a collection some focus,” she says. “You want to end up with a collection of pieces that contextualize each other and create a greater narrative than the pieces by themselves.” The theme could be based on the historical period the artwork was created, the style of the pieces, or the subjects depicted. “You don’t have to be too rigid,” Soboleva says. “It can be more of an underlying theme.”
