Summary of Art Investment Criteria

In the year 2000, I created specific art investment criteria. With a Master’s in Economics and forty years of expertise in the Jamali art business, I have taken these criteria and successfully delivered the desired investment goals.

First of all, art acquired for investment has consistently outperformed traditional investment instruments. In fact, there are distinct advantages in acquiring specific artists work as compared to other classes of portfolios.

  • guaranteed authenticity and provenance

  • the investor has the benefit of a direct relationship with the artist

  • the investor has the rare opportunity to curate their selection, focusing on the pieces they ‘connect’ with**

  • contact with the artist for advice and practical support and networking through the artist’s foundation

There are also perennial values which help add real value and generate a maximum return on investments in high art, for example:

  • Spiritual values in art, for example, Kandinsky, the ‘cosmology’ of Jackson Pollock and today, Jamali’s Mystical Expressionism

  • The Ephemeral and Other-worldly aspects in art create ‘eternal’ values: consider Jamali’s Sufist methods and surfaces

  • Bringing together the processes of nature and the ritual of painting

  • Use of a highly emotive brush delivers a kind of transmutation of human feelings. For example, Edvard Munch and Frieda Kahlo, compares with Jamali’s figurative works

  • Jamali's entirely new techniques are real breakthroughs in painting, created through a spiritualized dance based on two innovative techniques; fresco tempera and pigmentation on cork.

  • The life story of the artist becomes increasingly important as it assumes a larger than life, iconic nature - it is a kind of work of art in and of itself.

  • The ‘lure of the exotic’ can add to this reputation and persona. For example, the Spaniard Picasso in France, the Haitian/Jamaican Basquiat in New York, Zao Wou-ki in Paris and finally Jamali in New York.

  • Employing themes in sync with human emotions and aspirations.

  • Selection of materials and processes: chosen based on experimentation, permanence and sustainability.

  • In conclusion, the value of art as investment is determined by its place in art history, in authoritative publications, in its presentation of a distinctive new style, its collectability and overall craftsmanship and quality.

Selected Examples of Art Investment and Value Appreciation


  • Jean-Michel Basquiat - in 1982 his most important piece sold for $4000. In 2017, a similar piece sold for $110.5 million (35 year investment period)

  • Pablo Picasso - in his late period (1969 - 72) an average sized painting sold for $2500 to $22,000. Currently the Helly Nahmad Gallery in New York owns seven late Picassos, priced from $2.5 to $7 million (28 year period)

  • Zao Wou-ki - in 2005 his largest work “Juin - Octobre 1985” was purchased for $2.3 million. In October 2018 this piece sold for $65 million (13 year investment period)

  • Paul Gauguin - most of career his prices averaged about 1000 francs. His 1892 work “Aha oe fee? (Are you Jealous?),” sold for just 500 francs in 1893, was recently auctioned for $25 million. In 2015 the Qatar museum purchased Gauguin’s arguably most famous work “Nafea fas ipoipo (When Will You Marry?)” for an astonishing $300 million. (122 years)
