“What do you hope to acquire when you bid at a prestigious evening auction at Sotheby’s? A bundle of things: a painting of course, but hopefully also a new dimension to how people see you. As Robert Lacey described it in his book about Sotheby’s, you are bidding for class, for a validation of your taste.”
Don Thompson, The $12 Million Stuffed Shark: The Curious Economics of Contemporary Art

“Some private treaty activity is initiated by dealers, who are forced to partner with auction houses to gain access to their client lists. Only Christie’s can identify the underbidders at most recent Francis Bacon auctions—and in a thin market, a seller needs access to this information.”
Don Thompson, The $12 Million Stuffed Shark: The Curious Economics of Contemporary Art

“Conventional wisdom in the art world is that four out of five new contemporary art galleries will fail within five years. Ten percent of galleries established for more than five years also close each year.”
