‘Art is almost like a religion,’ says Emily Tsingou, explaining why the art market just keeps on growing. ‘There are a lot of disciples out there and more and more people getting into it.’ Few art advisers are better positioned than Tsingou — a former curator and art writer who ran her own contemporary art gallery for ten years — to help you navigate it. And it requires that more than ever before, with new galleries and auction houses popping up constantly. It’s all about great works of provenance and exhibition history at the moment . ‘Connoisseurship is coming into the market more,’ she explains. ‘People want the work that defines the artist in that moment in time.’ You get what you pay for from Tsingou, who is prepared to be involved 24-7.
