This painting sold for a 5,7898x price appreciation, now you can access the market

When a New York City real estate developer purchased an untitled painting from a little known-artist named Jean-Michel Basquiat for $19,000 in 1983, he definitely wasn’t expecting a 5,798x return on his investment. But that’s exactly what happened when he sold the work for a stunning $110,000,000 in 2017. 

It may sound too good to be true, but contemporary art prices have quietly outpaced the S&P 500 by 136% over the last 27 years. Now, everyday investors are unlocking access to the very same market thanks to the blue-chip art investing platform Masterworks. 

Masterworks’ nearly $1 billion collection includes works by greats like Basquiat, Banksy, and Picasso, all of which are collectively owned by everyday investors. When Masterworks sells a painting – like the 16 it’s already sold – investors reap their portion of the profits.
