Exclusive Interview with Tom Glynn – Part 3 | Taking Care of Business
How much do your paintings cost? “My paintings range in size, theme and medium and whilst I make very large and small paintings, the price can vary considerably. A small painting may take me one to two weeks to complete, while a very large painting will evolve over one to two months and involve more materials. Typically, I have sold A5 to A4 paintings from $5,000 to $8,000 (dependent upon the dealer or gallery commission) and very large ones from $10,000 to $15,000. My paintings will also be valued against my expertise, experience and reputation and of course every piece I make is unique and continues to increase in value. With regards to my sculptures and assemblages, prices are on application.”
Tom Glynn is a rare breed: an artist who can move effortlessly between artforms, materials, scales and registers, equally adept at making miniature paintings and monumental sculptures. And yet all of his work is unmistakably English in mood. His images are populated by the country’s Neolithic monuments and pastoral landscapes, and informed by the many artists who inhabited those places before him. Glynn is driven by the same Romantic spirit that motivated Palmer and Turner, Nash and Piper, Wallis, Lanyon and Hockney, but his art is never anything but his own. It is, after all, underpinned by an urge that has coursed through his veins since he first stepped foot in a sandpit. – Dr. James Fox | British Art Historian & Broadcaster

What does World’s Best AI ‘ChatGPT’ think about Top Art, Antiques, and Collectibles? We Asked!
The World Art News asked the World’s Leading Artificial Intelligence system ‘ChatGPT’ to write an article about top art, antiques, and collectibles. In less than a minute we received a shockingly good art story written entirely by a machine! We did not edit a single word or punctuation. This is what the AI wrote:
“Art as an investment has been a popular choice for centuries, with many investors purchasing pieces by well-known artists with the hope of selling them at a higher price in the future. The art market has seen some significant booms in recent years, with the value of certain artists and pieces skyrocketing. However, it’s important to note that the art market can be highly speculative and illiquid, and values can fluctuate greatly. The art market’s value is also often driven by the market sentiments, trends, and the demand for certain artists.”
The Modigliani Affaire
The death of Amedeo Modigliani and of his devoted partner Jeanne Hebuterne starts one of the most emblematic stories of the Art Market, which will lead the works of the unfortunate Tuscan artist to be subject of an “exceptional enterprise of economic revaluation”.
The acme of the speculative operation has been reached with the auction award for 170,405,000 US dollars of the “Red Nude”, which previously belonged to Gualino Collection and to Feroldi Collection and then in 1950 was acquired by the art collector Gianni Mattioli thanks to the interest of his cousin, Fernanda Wittgens, the then Director of the Pinacoteca di Brera.
The valorization of Modigliani’s Work thus began in the ‘50s on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean: in Europe activities revolved around “Il Milione Gallery” in Milan and in America around Museum of Modern Art in New York.
