Wanderer69 (5/21/2019)It is for me the ONLY factor.The inexplicable factor, the 'thing', the 'sigma' that is art. It could be moonlight, it could be religious, it could be anything, but if it always makes the hairs stand up and encourages me to go deeper into the picture, it deserves a place on the wall. I would resist immensely the urge to buy a print of an old master, especially one of those prints of posters of prints of old masters advertising galleries etc. I would never give wall space to a picture simply because it was painted by 'so and so' (perhaps I might if he / she did the same for one of mine).
I appreciate coming across something that immediately takes the fancy, sometimes for unexplainable reasons, that make one want to own it other than who painted it etc, is a factor
