Naples Fl. Art Connoisseur,
Before we get to involved with this post let’s first let’s see how the definition is written for an Art Connoisseur. Whether it be Art, a fine Wine or even exotic food, I for one don’t believe that there are many who actually know what a Connoisseur is, do you?
Hell even my website hosting is the best. Yours can be too, but that’s a different post and another topic for the forum.
Anyway here is how its defined,
“Describe who your ideal customer’s are”
My favorite Kind of client is the one who desires education about art. This happens to me all the time when I can get the work as the clients are so amazed at my knowledge and versatility. Especially my murals, graining, and ornamental painting, Of course most of the clients have art on their walls but sometimes don’t know enough about it and/or have a a real desire to learn more about it i.e. style, time, period, Many of them will spend at least an hour with me everyday to gain more knowledge of it especially when they like it but don’t know the reason why. Many don’t know that general architecture was not painted in the 15th to early 17th century because no one understood perspective correctly and painted very dark and/or obscured backgrounds. Some find this fascinating, Much was painted using lenses and reflections. If you look closely at the old masters work you can tell this by observing that many of the figures are not directly looking at one another. They were place in the paintings at different times and places.
It’s very important to me to understand the personality of the client when it comes to how they value the art and why. Some I can’t work with at all because they have no knowledge and or care to know about a certain piece. They just know of the investment value of it. (the elite) I could go on and on as this is a subject that can be answered with a few short sentences. I could write a book on the subject and why I have started a forum on my website for special think tanks on this kind of thing to help with the marketing for artists, creatives and even small business owners. Home owners/collectors of fine art are welcome to join in the conversations as well.
