Success Story: Sacrifice Paid Off
In 1979, a young couple just getting their start in New York City made what was for them an incredibly lavish purchase at ASAGE Art, the American State of the Arts Gallery Exchange. When they saw an Andy Warhol screenprint of Mick Jagger at ASAGE, they couldn’t resist buying it, even though the only way they could afford the hefty $1,000 price tag at that time was to put $100 down and pay for the piece in installments until they could finally take it home 10 months later.
More recently, record auction prices for Warhol works prompted the couple to submit the print to Lofty in the summer of 2014. When they received their evaluation, they were thrilled to learn that the print is now worth $55,000! Although they decided to keep the piece and pass it down to their children, it was rewarding to learn that those 10 months of scrimping back in 1979 were more than worth it!
