If you are lucky enough to have the money, is investing in art a good idea during the credit crunch?
That is what financial guru Alvin Hall sets out to explore in this week's programme.
The renowned art market observer, Godfrey Barker said that in the art world pictures are still "singing and dancing".
Alvin asks art and investment experts in the UK and in the US if the art market can maintain its current strength through the credit crunch.
And though a picture may be worth a thousand words, what makes it worth thousands or even millions of pounds?
Alvin Hall's World of Money: Art was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday 2 August at 1204 BST.
A longer version of the programme was broadcast on Monday 4 August at 1502 BST.
