The highs and lows of contemporary artists [19 Jan 2010]

As expected, auction revenue figures for contemporary artists in 2009 contracted quite substantially (divided by 14 in the case of Damien Hirst, and by 3 in the case of Jeff Koons).

Contemporary art – New arrivals to the world of public auctions [24 Jun 2008]

Every year, nearly 3,000 artists have their first work(s) sold at auction. This first sale is a significant step because for most people the prices they command represent a sort of benchmark which follows them throughout their career. Galleries find it less easy to support their favourite artists if the latter have not shown the capacity to generate sufficiently strong performances in the public auction arena. Likewise, a strong auction performance is an ideal trampoline for guaranteeing the success of future exhibitions on the primary market.So who got started in 2007? Artprice looks at the top 50 new entrants.

Artprice takes a look at this high profile segment of the market occupied by young artists, all born after 1945.In less than a year, the number of 7-figure (sometimes 8 …) auction sales involving three dimensional works has substantially increased. In 2007, 14 works sold for over a million dollars; in the first six months of 2008, we are already at 18…
