Art for the sake of value addition

UPSC Practice recommends Art for the sake of value addition.

A thriving art market has two prerequisites: one, a class of buyers who can afford objects that are given their value by the buyers themselves; two, a body of knowledge around these objects that adds value to them. The former India has aplenty. The latter includes artistic, historical, archival and market knowledge to inject artworks with value that goes beyond their ‘intrinsic’ price tag. For this, scholars and experts need to be very much part of this ecosystem.
