The French art movement known as Narrative Figuration was officially born in 1965. Both museums and auctioneers are planning to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary.

Each year, two major international art fairs (often with several satellite shows) open the Parisian art scene to Contemporary art from all round the world: the FIAC in October and Art Paris Art Fair in March (this year from March 26 to 29 at the Grand Palais).

Nowadays, competition is very much a part of the art market; the major auction houses compete, countries compete to remain or became the global market’s key poles, and artists compete with each other for the limelight and the best results. Hand in hand with this competition, There is intense marketing, the impact of fashions, and hyper-media exposure for certain artists. So where does this leave art prices?
