Sotheby’s dominates the 2004 art market [02/01/2005]

The art market had a splendid year in 2004. Turnover at fine art auctions jumped by more than 30% on 2003, wiping out at a stroke the lingering effects of the 2001 slump. Much of this growth was due to high-profile auctions hosted by Sotheby’s and Christie’s.

Sotheby’s and Christie’s Impressionist and Modern Art evening sales fail to dazzle [05/11/2004]

The verdict is out: Sotheby’s took USD 194 million (4 November 2004) and Christie’s USD 128 million (3 November 2004). Although these results are still very respectable, in the case of Sotheby’s they fall short of even the most cautious predictions.

Artprice Top 5 [06/09/2004]

Each artist makes his/her own, large or small, contribution to the total market. And ranking them by auction turnover gives a good indication of the markets conditions, preferences and trends. Each year Artprice ranks artists by this criterion.

Lots of multi-million lots! [21/04/2004]

The prestigious “Impressionist and Modern Art” evening sales in New York on 4, 5 and 6 May 2004 are some of the most sparkling events on the art calendar.

Gloomy times for impressionists while modernists triumph [16/11/2003]

The US art market was in fine form at the Impressionism and Modern Art evening sales. Thanks to a number of wealthy American bidders, several major lots went for more than their high estimates. A healthy 75 of 102 lots put up found buyers on the evenings of 4 and 5 November, and total turnover was USD 216 million.

Star turns at the Impressionism & Modern Art auctions in New York [16/04/2003]

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…

Paul Gauguin : 110 years of auctions [06/10/2002]

As the centenary of Paul Gauguin’s death approaches museums are rushing to hold prestigious retrospectives on one of the most influential painters of his time. The NY Metropolitan’s “Gauguin in New York Collections: The Lure of the Exotic” closes on 28 October 2002, but an exposition opens the following April at the Musée du Luxembourg and runs to June. For the auction houses, this is an opportunity to put up some extra Gauguin pieces.

Impressionism? Anglo-Saxon hammer prices on the wane. [01/07/2002]

Recent sales at the London auctions of 24 and 25 June confirm the resurgence of French impressionism which had been rather overshadowed in 2001. The healthy demand for the school was underscored when Claude MONET‘s Nymphs fetched GBP12,250,000 at Sotheby’s. At the same time, the popularity of British and US impressionists, who made such a splash in 2000, seemed to have waned.

The art market through the seasons: London at the fore of the art market in June [16/06/2002]

Prestigious auctions are increasingly concentrated in the same places and during specific seasons. By holding high-profile events at the same time and in the same place when the art season is at its peak auction houses can achieve economies of scale. They seek to galvanise the media with press conferences and other events so as to attract collectors to a sale of some exceptional particularly sought-after pieces.
