In thinking about the Hansen Collection, how it is being assembled, and how fast it’s being done, it occurs to me that it would have been impossible to do it so quickly 20+ years ago. Mostly because collectors were not so quick to sell their collections. We could debate the reasons forever, but we can probably at least agree that there’s a strong correlation between the length of time it takes to build a collection and the length of time it will be held.
So my question is, going forward from here, will the trend continue? Seems logical that it would, but I could easily see it going the other way.
