By the way .....
This Gary Hume painting 'Yellow Window, 2002' sold at Christies for £25,000 (estimate: £8,000 - £12,000) at their Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Auction, 15 February 2012.
Therefore, 1 of 1000 should be worth £25???
So, on your logic, the more windows he paints, the less each is worth – try using that argument on the decorator, next time you have the painters in! The Tate probably argues that if 9 Hume windows cost £25,000, then you might expect to pay £25,000/9 = £2,778 for one window, & £150 represents an absolute snip!
Do these have a viable sell on value?
He is not a decorator, so yes the more he paints, the less each is likely to be worth. That is why editions are cheaper than unique pieces, not more expensive. I was being somewhat facetious and happen to think that £150 is a bargain to have a piece of art by a recognized artist on your wall, but the implication that it makes a good investment because one of his paintings happened to sell for £25,000 ought to be resisted. In fact I don’t think that one should be buying editions for investment purposes at all – buy what you like and even if it ends up being worthless, you shouldn’t be disappointed.
