Masterworks is an alternative investing platform that gives you access to one of the most exclusive and overlooked investments in history: blue-chip art. Masterworks lets regular people invest in paintings by legends like Banksy, Basquiat and Warhol without spending millions. I've now used masterworks to invest in 14 different paintings, including a 15 million dollar Picasso.

Here’s how it works: Masterworks will buy a painting they think will appreciate well over time, then they securitize that painting with the SEC, so you can invest in it instead of buying the whole thing. Once they sell the painting, later on, you get your share of the proceeds. It’s that simple. They’ve offered over 100 paintings so far and the last their last three sales sold at 17, 21, and 33 percent net returns*.
