Subject: Buying a masterpiece which isn't one yet rss

The first three slots in my gallery are occupied by pieces of art.

I buy a new piece of art which becomes a masterpiece only because I buy it.

Then I place it on the forth (masterpiece) spot.

Is this allowed (because in the moment when I buy it, it is not a masterpiece)?

The reason this is allowed is the order of actions, as specified in the book and the reference card. First you pay for the work, then you increase the artist's Fame, and then you place the work in your gallery. Therefore, you can use the increased Fame to make the artwork a masterpiece before you place the work. However, you cannot use the cash bonus for making the artist a celebrity to pay for the work.
