​French market appeal… [01 Aug 2017]

Although the French art market is recognised as offering exceptional overall quality, when it comes to fetching the best (highest) prices, France is still unable to stop historical masterpieces by its national artists from crossing the Channel or the Atlantic to be sold in London or New York. However, since the beginning of the 2017, […]

May auction sales: the ascent continues… [26 Apr 2010]

Paris: the crisis…. and museum strikes [21 Dec 2009]

As the year draws to a close, the success last February of the first round of the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint-Laurent sale looks increasingly incongruous: was it a bold leap out of the crisis, the sign of a genuine recovery of French art market dynamism… or was it just a one-off event with no particular market significance?

Paris resists crisis [13 Jul 2009]

Although the global art is in the midst of a crisis, Paris appears to be showing remarkable resistance: the number of auction sales and the volume of lots proposed has remained stable compared with 2008. Moreover, for the first quarter of 2009, the French capital posted a better overall revenue figure than either London or New York on the back of the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint-Laurent sale at the Grand Palais in February.

The New York miracle [15 May 2008]

The gloomy financial climate of the beginning of the year fuelled fears of a rapid deflation of the speculative bubble the art market has been enjoying over recent years. These fears seemed all the more justified as European art prices contracted by 7.5% in the first quarter of the year.With the dollar weak, it remained to be seen how the New York art market would react -particularly in the high-price segments. Not surprising therefore that the Impressionist & Modern Art sales at Christie’s and Sotheby’s of 6 and 7 May, followed, a week later by the Contemporary Art sales, were observed with much interest, particularly by investors who had watched Sotheby’s stock price reduce to less than 30 dollars at the start of the year.

Star turns at the Impressionism & Modern Art auctions in New York [16 Apr 2003]

Sotheby’s and Christie’s are taking similar approaches to the evening auctions to be held on 6 and 7 May. Both are banking on Renoir and Degas from the impressionists, dropping Picasso, and hoping to continue selling Giacometti sculptures in bulk. Some of the works on offer may seem oddly familiar…
