Experienced art collectors do not just buy art precisely because artists contact them about a superb match that they might be searching for at that instant. The whooping majority of art collectors have continuously narrowed down and focused their interests. They know what they are looking for, where to get it and even who to buy it from. They have in mind the shows and fairies to make appearances and with time they have a diverse network, cultivated and strong circles of trusted contacts with curators, consultants, galleries and artists. For amateur art collectors, there is a long road ahead of them but the right steps can make you a great collector in some years to come.
Great art collectors are rarely inclined to strike up conversations or get close with strangers unless there is an irresistible reason or a referral made. They know where to get the art that pleases them and not just because it is trending, but it rhymes with their interests. Notable art collectors are apt in distinguishing certain works of art from millions of pieces that are in existence. They are also good at assembling them to heighten the understanding of the art or its evolution. The Sender Collection is an example of a mature collection that is merely a large sum of parts. Over the years, the collection has been respected by other prominent art collectors and has had a toll in setting standards that have sometimes influenced the future on collecting for other people.
The man behind this vintage collection is one to be reckoned and at only 45 has gathered a massive trove of the exceptional art from the best contemporary artists. As a novice collector, Adam Sender has always gone for what he likes, and if you ask him about this, he will proudly tell you that he has never bought anything that he had nagging doubts about. He has also not confined himself to the same old galleries when looking for certain art. As an astute art collector, he has always suspended his buying anytime he hasn’t been satisfied by a piece of art. It is nice of Adam Sender to show off the art that he has collected, and many people will be grateful to him for doing that.
Sender’s career in art collection dates back in the late 90s after he departed from the Steve Cohen’s SAC Capital Advisors LP to establish his hedge fund. He chose securities that he would buy for a reasonable price and later sell them for a profit, and he eventually settled for art collecting. He started small but is now talking of a collection worth $70m with more than 400 Pieces of Art Collection. The Sender Collection comprises of works from artists like Philomene Magers, Barbara Gladstone, Marianne Boesky, and Sadie Coles among others. Adam Sender has always exuded a sense of sureness and focus on his overall plans in art collecting, and this has made him the excellent art collector he is. Sender has gone on to amass an amazing contemporary art collection, and he put some of the works up for auction at Sotheby’s recently.
