prov·e·nance    n. 

  1. 1. Place of origin; derivation.
  2. 2. Proof of authenticity or of past ownership. Used of art works and antiques.

[French, from provenant, present participle of provenir, to originate, from Old French, from Latin pr ven re : pr -, forth ; see pro-1 + ven re, to come; see gw - in Indo-European roots.]


An art piece of merit has a lineage, known as "provenance".  Provenance defines or tracks the piece created by the artist and continues through its historical line of ownership.  

Owning an early issue art piece could possibly establish you as a noted art collector or connoisseur .  The lineage has to start somewhere, why not with you?  Remember, "art is long, life is short."  You could be the early owner of a  piece and add your name to art posterity.  You'd like that wouldn't you?

To start or add to a collection, look for excellent low edition pieces with early dates, of subjects you enjoy or one that "speaks" to you. It could be a winning combination, you get to invest in an art piece while enjoying it as it ages - then generously pass it to your heirs to continue the enjoyment.

Is it your time for fame?
