Recent Auction Results

  • What do recent results from the world's major auction houses tell us about the state of the market for art & antiques? In last week's chat we discussed the market for Western American Art & made predictions for prices at last weekend's Santa Fe Art Auction. Boy, were we way off base! Let's look at those results & the results from last week's Christie's auction of Post-War and Contemporary Art, which brought in $70 million, and see if we can make any sense out of it. Is the market of Western Art in any way a proxy for the overall art market? If so, how can you reconcile what happened in Santa Fe with what happened in New York? You're going to have to tune in to find out! Hope you can make it at the usual time, Tuesday, at 5PM PST, 6PM MST, 7PM CST, 8PM EST. Gary
