Strong secondary markets, or how the art sells at an auction level, is extremely important when it comes to determining if a piece of art is eligible for a loan. Chicago Loan Company, an upscale pawnshop in Chicago, Illinois, is well-known for making collateral based loans on fine art. While the company makes pawn loans ranging anywhere from a few hundred dollars into seven figures, it can be particular about the art that it loans against.
Famous Artists’ Work For Collateral
Contemporary household name blue-chip artists, like Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, Roy Lichtenstein, Damien Hirst, Kaws, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and David Hockney, typically have strong auction records and make great collateral for a short term nonrecourse loan.
