A contemporary art expert demystifies the process of finding,
appreciating, and collecting contemporary art on any budget.


Contemporary art is often misunderstood as intentionally controversial,
obnoxiously self–indulgent, or painfully obscure. In this book,
contemporary art expert and gallery owner Paige West guides readers
toward the understanding that contemporary art can be just as original,
tasteful, and breathtaking as traditional paintings. West draws from her
experience as a professional art dealer to break all these
misconceptions and allow readers to begin developing and enjoying a
private collection.

Beautiful full–colour illustrations and
smart layout accompany the humor with which this book explores the
current art scene. Dealing with everything from the outrage surrounding
Chris Ofili's Sensation, to Salvador Dali's rampage through a department
store, this book will appeal to the artistically minded individual as
well as the potential art buyer.

Beginning with what constitutes
original art, the book moves on to discuss how to start collecting,
where to find modern art, and what are reasonable prices. With gorgeous
photographs of representative pieces used as examples, the book is as
much a fashionable tool for home decorating as it is an open door into
the world of contemporary art. This book educates readers to take those
gilded–frame, poster–size wedding photos off their living
room walls, or those college poster art sale finds, and put up
interesting pieces from limited editions by current artists –
without breaking the bank.
