Condition Matters
Joseph K Levene Fine Art Ltd eBay Store

Condition is frequently overlooked when Buyers make purchase decisions only based on price comparisons
Too often Buyers make the wrong decision when comparing price of the same Artwork from different Sellers, especially when the higher priced Art reflects differences in condition. Artwork in superior condition is more desirable than Art that is torn, repaired, faded, erased, reduced in size, or worse, counterfeit. Condition Matters!

Ellsworth Kelly Red/Blue Color Screenprint: 2 Examples

The Highest Priced Art Is Not Always The Best
The above is a side-by-side comparison of two examples of the same Ellsworth Kelly Red/Blue Color Screenprint.  On the right, an impression sold by Sotheby's NY in 2007 for $64,000., described "in good condition".  On the left, a Pristine impression of the same Ellsworth Kelly Red Blue Color Screenprint offered by Joseph K. Levene Fine Art, Ltd., for less than $10,000! The rare and desirable Pristine impression offered by Joseph K. Levene Fine Art, Ltd., looks as good today as it did when it was first published in 1964.

$64,000 Sotheby's Impression Dull vs. Pristine eBay Store Impression
The comparison demonstrates the Pristine Impression offered by Joseph K. Levene Fine Art, Ltd., is brighter than the impression of the same print that sold for $64,000 at Sotheby's. The "blue" & "red" of the $64,000 Sotheby's impression is not as bright as impression offered by Joseph K. Levene Fine Art, Ltd.  The comparison demonstrates the advantage of purchasing a Pristine Impression. Condition Matters!

Many Buyers Purchase Inferior Art
When comparing and selecting Art only by price, Buyers are often misled when the Seller tells them the "Work of Art is "Mint", "Not Faded" and/or in "Perfect" condition, when the contrary is true, resulting in purchase of inferior Art. The truth is there is no savings as the purchased Art is not worth buying.

Quality Art Always Appreciates Faster
Many Art Sellers do not disclose condition, forcing Buyers to guess. Importantly, when a Condition statement is omitted, never assume the Art is satisfactory. Worse, others Sellers often overpromise and exaggerate condition and state a Work is actually better than its reality. 

  • Some Internet Sellers, Auctions and Galleries claim Art for Sale is problem-free, even when the photographs are contrary.
  • Many Internet Art Sellers, Galleries and Auction Personnel often do not provide objective Condition Reports.
  • Many Art Sellers are not knowledgeable, including Art Galleries, Auction Houses, Online Auctions, etc.
  • Other Sellers of Art are purposely deceptive because they know the truth will ruin the possibility of a sale.
  • Some Sellers are purposely misleading to deceive the unsuspecting Art Buyer.
  • Many eBay sellers prefer not including a condition statement since that information will only decrease price.
  • Others omit "condition" on Invoices, if they even supply one, because it may create a potential liability.

Compromised Art is often offered for sale in Online Auctions with incorect Condition Statements.  While the Lot will will state something to the effect "no damage to the Lot", the Photographs clearly show otherwise. This is not an instance of occurring once, but seems to be occurring with frequency.

Only Purchase Fine Art from Reputable and Professional Fine Art Dealers
Having a relationship with a Professional Art Dealer will always pay off in the long run. Many Art Sellers are not Professional; some have not even inspected the Art for sale, nor have the connseurship to know if is compromised.  Why risky your hard earn money on a maybe bargain?

Famous Name Auction Houses Can Be Inaccurate About Condition
You should not be fooled by famous Auction House Names as a guarantee of condition. Even famous name Auction Houses can be incorrect about condition. Since all condition statements provided by Auction Houses are merely opinions, and nothing more, always inspect the Lot yourself if you are knowledgeable, or hire an expert to do so on your behalf.

If You Need A Doctor, You Would Never Call A Plumber
There is a difference between an amateur and a Professional Fine Art Dealer, unless you like throwing money down the drain. Condition Matters!
