The Art Daily just published a good overview of dealers' & auction house experts' recommendations for what to buy at Asia Week this year that is affordable. When reading it though, remember that these are the recommendations of the people who are trying to sell you the art. Still, their recommendations are, for the most part, wise. BUT they leave out two important facts: there are a LOT of fakes out there of many the types of art they are selling, so its always BUYER BEWARE (that's why provenance matters), and many types of affordable art (such as Japanese scrolls) are easily damaged by exposure to light and so should not be continually displayed and kept out of sunlit rooms.
