This is very true - but if a canvas is painted on all sides, it has a wonderful finished yet minimalist feel to it when it is on a wall.

Vanessa Villegas Art Avisory

Regarding "Art as an Investment": That is very true as it applies to emerging and contemporary artists. But when you start from the secondary market you are generally buying established artists. Unlike most of the luxury decor and furniture, secondary market fine art has an established market. So in a few years if you want to sell your David Hockney lithograph or Damien Hirst butterfly you can - and you will probably make money on it!
