Prints: a very broad price range… [20 Dec 2010]

A personal art collection often begins with some kind of ‘multiple’ work like a photograph or a print. These formats – which usually change hands at very affordable prices – represent a low-risk way of participating in the art market.

For their Contemporary Art sales on 11 and 12 May 2010, Christie’s and Sotheby’s are betting on high prices for masterpieces signed Warhol, Klein and Rothko. But above all, the catalogues contain a number of major works that the crisis has withheld from the market.

Venice Biennial Art Fair: the Golden Lion prize [08 Jun 2009]

The 53rd Venice Biennial Art Fair opens to the public on 7 June 2009. For six months it presents a panorama of global contemporary art in pavilions representing the artists and countries invited.

American Pop Art – the bubble is leaking air… [21 Sep 2008]

The general price index for American Pop Art – the epicentre of art market speculation since the beginning of the decade – is showing signs of waning.

AMERICAN POP ART: +160% in 10 years [12 Aug 2003]

Contemporary art auctions in New York reassure the market with 34 records in three days [24 Nov 2002]

In a tense economic climate, contemporary art auctions in New York are proving stronger than modern art and impressionist art sales. The evening auctions may have been unexceptional. But Sotheby’s and Christie’s still managed some reassuring surprises, generally in the less prestigious later sessions, when prices for some artists showed real growth and some of them turned out to be impressive records.
