What Makes Art Valuable?

No. 3 - What Makes Art Valuable?  
A BBC Documentary

To create art is nothing more than taking an object/subject idea, feeling and emotion into something simple or complex. Along with basic tools, surface materials, art mediums and techniques, the artist expresses that creation. A work of art can have the ability to enrich our lives with purpose and meaning. The historical provenance of the artist and the rarity behind the art are driving forces to its value. Join us for this inside look at high-end auctioned art and why and how this art can be so valuable.
