Pricing Policy

Trying to price a painting or a sculpture is an odd experience. Some of them are invaluable to me, and those I don't sell. Others I'm attached to: the more attached I am, the higher the price I put on them. The less, the more likely I am to sell it for little or give it away (and sometimes I wish I hadn't when I discover that I was more attached than I thought I was!). Of course in this arbitrary calculation I have to take what I think the market will accept too. But it is arbitrary. Artists like Van Gogh could never ever have imagined the ultimate value people would one day put on their paintings.

If you like a sculpture or a painting and think it's good others may one day agree and it could prove to be both a delight in your life as well as a good investment. And if others disagree, but you've chosen a painting with your heart, you'll just have the delight.

ORDERING INFO

I understand that buying art directly online without viewing it first can be rather daunting, and would not want anyone to be disappointed on receipt of the actual work. If you are not pleased with what you have received, then please send it back to me and I will send you your money back, provided Ireceive the psculpture or painting in the condition in which I sent it.

If you wish to view the actual work before purchasing then a visit to my studio in NW London is possible by arrangement. There is no obligation to buy and you are very welcome to have a look at sculptures and paintings on this site and many others I haven't managed to upload yet. Any arrangements to see paintings or any discussions about the work can be done through Stephen Frank in London, on 0208 450-4226
