Auctioneers Who Made Art History

Boll, Dirk (Hrsg.) | Hatje Cantz Verlag GmbH | E-Books


Procurement analysis, sales planning, customer orientation, brand management—the art market is changing more rapidly than ever before. The price that a work of art commands influences its place in the art-historical canon. Auction houses have become dominant avenues of distribution, as have art fairs, galleries, and art dealers. Even today the ritual dramaturgy of the auction resembles an archaic competition, which can leave participants speechless and captivate bystanders. At the center of the action is the auctioneer, whose performance is increasingly critical to the success of the auction. With portraits of auctioneers, this volume tells the story of the art auction business. Key events that played out in cities such as New York, Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Stuttgart, and Pompeii come alive and show how the auctioneer is emerging from the anonymity of a service provider and stepping into the limelight as the star of the show. (Deutsche Ausgabe ISBN 978-3-7757-3902-3)

 

In conjunction printed volumes (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-3902-3, English edition ISBN 978-3-7757-3903-0) are also available.

Art for Sale

Hatje Cantz Verlag GmbH | E-Books


Record prices and substantial profits have been and still are being achieved on the art market. Yet anyone who wants to get involved needs to be informed: what distinguishes the English type of auction from one in the Netherlands? What differentiates a vintage from a period, modern, or estate print? Dirk Boll, managing director of Christie’s in Zurich, explains this and other technical terms while providing us with insight into the rapidly changing art market: the increasingly symbiotic relationship between auctioneers and art dealers, the strategies used by the big auction houses, recognizing and creating trends, the profiles of the individual art fairs, promising new areas for collectors, and the future development of the art market are just some of the fascinating themes the expert knowledgeably and humorously deals with in concise chapters. A trained lawyer, Boll is as competent at shedding light on the legal parameters regulating the acquisition of art as he is in elucidating the difficulties surrounding looted art and restitution procedures. (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-2814-0)

Was kostet Kunst?

Völcker, Wolfram (Hrsg.) | Hatje Cantz Verlag GmbH | E-Books


What is an original, what is a one of a kind, and what is a work of art? How do the condition, provenance, and history of a work of art affect its value? What sort of standards and criteria are used to judge a work of art?

This and many other issues concerning the question of “How much does art cost?” are discussed by prominent experts, who explain how to classify and appraise a work of art from legal, conservational, and art-historical perspectives.

The authors elucidate the importance of the artist’s position in history, as well how works are classified within an artist’s oeuvre. Helpful details—such as how to arrive at the correct market price and how to find one’s way through the jungle of price databases—makes this anthology an excellent source of information for all collectors and art lovers, as well as for artists, galleries, auction houses, and everyone else involved in the art market.
