Artprice surveys the rising stars of a generation of artists that are as likely to send a frisson through the auction rooms as Picasso, Renoir or Van Gogh. Sometimes now topping a million dollars, the prices commanded by young generations of artists, have recently begun to rival those of established auction stars — »young » in our classification means born after 1960.

When Damien HIRST curated the Young British Artists’ first group exhibition, « Freeze », in London back in 1988, his own work, along with that of Gary HUME, Sarah LUCAS and Fiona RAE, had little market value. At the time, the Young British Artists’ reputation was confined to an inner circle of the London art scene. However, with the group’s main mentors—gallery owner (and advertising mogul) Charles Saatchi, and Jay Jopling, founder of the White Cube Gallery—spreading the faith, global recognition was swift to come.

Perhaps the best-known of the new generation of artists now selling at public auction are the Young British Artists — »young » in our classification means born after 1960. Having achieved international acclaim, they are now increasingly making an impact on the auction floor.
