LabelArt does not always rise in value as it gets older. Hope College acquired this painting by Illinois-based artist Paul Pinzarrone with funds obtained from an insurance payout after Van Raalte Hall was destroyed by fire in 1980. At the time, Pinzarrone was considered an up-and-coming young artist with an interesting technique and style, but his artistic career never lived up to its early promise. Today Pinzarrone’s paintings from the 1970s and 80s often sell for less than they originally cost thirty or forty years ago.
