For anyone who hasn’t yet read the Wall Street Journal article about kids collecting art – once you are done flipping through pics of “young collector” Dakota King’s collection (and pictures of her holding her dog) please skip down to the 7th paragraph beginning with “But there are upsides to mixing kids and fine art…” I think that may have a little more importance to all of this then that little Holland Chaney has confidence now and “doesn’t look at the floor and shuffle her feet” when she discusses her collection.
Other highlights of the article include that there is an official rule at Christies that you cannot cry if you are outbid…
and most sad quote goes to 10 year old Shammiel Fleischer-Amoros for, “I’m really scared, but Daddy told me I have to negotiate”.
And definitely, my favorite and number 1 collector out of the bunch goes to … Brahm Wachter who bought an “awesome” Rembrandt with his bar mitzvah money and is selling his Hockney, because he “hates it now” – good for you buddy, I hate Hockney too!
