NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- American contemporary artist Robert MacDonald (https://www.macdonaldgallery.com), known for his "Willie Nelson Peace in the Valley" cover art and music video (https://www.macdonaldgallery.com/willie-nelson-peace-valley/), among other works, is introducing a new concept to appreciating, collecting and especially investing in art.
"The art market can be very daunting, especially for entry level art collectors and I wanted to increase their confidence in knowing that their investment in my art would never decrease in value. Plus, bringing awareness that I will do everything I can to increase their investment," explains MacDonald as to why he developed this concept.
The program is simple. MacDonaldGallery.com agrees to buy back any art at the original investment amount, at any time from the original owner. The art investment guarantee is included with the Bill of Sale.
All MacDonald's art is cataloged and includes a Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity and hologram. This assures the art collector and investor that the artwork is original, and the documentation provides for an increase in value.
Also contributing to the increase in value of MacDonald's art is the way in which his art is marketed. "Often there is a stigma to how art is marketed or commercialized, but I take my cues from Picasso, doing whatever moves me," says MacDonald. He goes on, "If my art looks appropriate for an album or book cover, movie set, or even a lady's purse, I'm ok with it."
Because MacDonald's art is cataloged, MacDonaldGallery.com can help collectors locate specific pieces for their collection and likely providing a profit to the current owner.
Currently, MacDonald has three remarqued editions that should be of special interest: (https://www.macdonaldgallery.com/showroom/product-category/art-prints/)
"My Favorite Flowers"
"This is one of my favorite paintings. I painted it in about 10 minutes. I have paintings that I have spent days, even weeks or more on, and then did not feel nearly as pleased as I do with "My Favorite Flowers."
"Un Ami dans La Nuit"
This remarque is of a painting MacDonald painted in Paris in 2001, and is part of a collection entitled, "L'Espirit Libre." "I have some very special plans for the 'L'Espirit Libre' collection and wanted to release this print as an opportunity for appreciation in value before the next stage of the collection is revealed."
"Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres"
Originally painted in Chartres, France in 2002, this work is currently available as a fine art print remarque and a canvas print remarque.
As an artist, MacDonald has yet to become a self-proclaimed minotaur, creator of 54,000 works of art, let alone cut part of his ear off, or even shoot himself to death, but he is trying to come as close as he possibly can…and still survive.
MacDonald has been doing so by "walking the walk" of Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Ruiz Picasso. His "Passage Picasso" has taken him to every significant place where Picasso lived and created his art. Likewise, his "Voyage Van Gogh" has taken him to virtually every place in the world where Vincent Van Gogh set foot. He has personally viewed & studied over 90% of Van Gogh's public works.
MacDonald is influenced by many other artists and is definitely not trying to be another Picasso or Van Gogh, his "raison d'être" is simply, "They are my talisman."
As for investing in his art, MacDonald makes note, "Of course the main purpose of my art is for enjoyment and appreciation on an artistic level, so by taking away any investment concerns I believe my art can be enjoyed even more."
