There are people who collect art just for the sake of doing it and those that do it out of passion. A different group exists all together; these are the ones who do it professionally. Adam Sender falls perfectly in this category, having done this since the mid 1990s. He is an avid collector of art who does that from established and experienced names. Initially, Adam Sender worked has a hedge fund manager and developed interest in art collection while still working.
In order to be a successful art collector, sender notes that anyone has to do it intelligently. This involves mastering the important skills of the trade. They include doing proper research and working with the right who are experienced in the field. These are some of the things that have built Sender’s success in the field of art collection. He has always built a strong relationship with top individuals in the art world like Sadie Coles, Shaun Regen, and Barbara Gladstone. Sender has maintained these contacts over long periods owing to their importance and the results have been excellent.
When he was starting out, Sender had no clue that he would have the kind of collection that he has currently. It shows the kind of collector that he is because excellent collectors are always known by how good their collection is. The best art collectors do their work in unified manner that brings out a meaningful correlation within the pieces of collection. This requires great experience and the knowledge of knowing what to choose from the rest in order to achieve that.
Sender believes that it is good to share art collections with the rest of the world. This is something that is not done by many art collectors which makes him stand out from the rest. He is not the type that collects and hides their pieces. Sender does this by lending to exhibitions that are of value. He created a website solely for this purpose where any exhibitor can put forward his request. It functions more effectively like a lending library for art.
Sender has also had great success in selling his art collection. In 2006, he sold 40 pieces of art that brought in $20 million. This is a sum that covered his previous costs of acquisition. He will make approximately profits of $70 million after selling his art collection. It will involve 400 works done by 139 artists that will be sold in a period of18months. He has also organized successful exhibitions himself like the ‘Home Alone’ exhibition that took place in Miami.
