Mispriced Art: LS Lowry RA (1887-1976)
Over a thirty year period famous UK artist LS Lowry has yielded returns of 16% per year. He is the market leader in Modern British art with good upside potential. Our econometric models valued “The Beach at Penarth” between GBP 200,000 – 250,000. At a London auction in 2004 it sold for a hammer price of GBP 130,000 a bargain price for the purchaser. Today the painting is worth over 10 times in excess of GBP 1.5 million.
There have been two art market recessions in the early 1990’s and in 2008 when prices fell substantially Uninformed buying has seen art sectors rise and fall sharply in value due to investors spending large sums on mediocre paintings by famous names

Over the next twelve months, due to the Coronavirus, works by the likes of Pablo Picasso, Impressionists and many others, will fall 10% to 20% in value, while works by less established artists, (those whose works are not in major museums) could fall as much as 50%. The luxury market for chattels is due to fall 30% in line with disposable income. Many art collectors are seeking art loans rather than a sale.
One problem is that the postponement of public auctions gives the market much less visibility on where works are being priced. If you can buy a great British artist like Augustus John, LS Lowry, Mick Rooney, Lucian Freud or Francis Bacon, they will hold their value in the long term.
For rare and important works of art, clients should hold rather than sell in a tough market at the moment. For liquidity clients could take a loan against the art and hold off a sale for 12 months’ time to when things settle down from the effects of the coronavirus.
