Well, the reasons can be various. “There are as many tastes, as personalities,” (ինչքան մարդ՝ այնքան ճաշակ) states the old Armenian proverb. Therefore, it is impossible to mention all the reasons of why people purchase artworks.
This article will talk about some of the most common motives of art lovers and purchasers.


One type of people buying artworks is art collectors. Collecting items is one of the most popular hobbies worldwide. Indeed, it consumes (lots of) time, effort, energy and money, but it does not reflect on the growing number of art collectors.
People purchase artworks just because they feel mentally and morally satisfied. Since Medieval times, art has been valued among high-status people. Visiting museums, purchasing art, and decorating houses/offices with paintings stays popular until now, as the appreciation of art has always been prestigious and “fashionable”.

Another type of art buyers is investors. It is no secret that antique paintings by “the great masters” are much more expensive than the ones by contemporary artists. Therefore, modern paintings have a huge potential to be sold in art markets with a higher price some decades or centuries later. This is the type of business art-lovers go for. People of this category are not collectors, as their primary goal is making money out of selling art . Anyway, they are not less passionate to buy artworks than collectors.

Artworks can simply serve as house decorations. However, matching the color of walls and furniture is not enough even for choosing a simple decoration. Paintings also have the power to convey messages: no matter whether there is a narrative in the artwork or not, they have a huge emotional impact on viewers.
