I: Distribution of investments: up to 90% 19th century and classic modern (c. 1840 - 1970) and up to 25% contemporary art.
II: Vintage Prints: We will focus our attention on this kind of photographs. A vintage is made close to the time the negative was taken. Usually only a few vintage prints were executed as there was no market at this time. Later prints, if famous, even in editions (10-50 pieces) can also be considered as valuable. In short: The number of prints is limited and the public interest (museums, private and corporate collections) is increasing.
