Thursday, September 24, 2015
Rosemary Beach – The Pearl – Hemingway Room
Learn how to build a collection for both pleasure and investment, as well as, gain insight on navigating the art markets – galleries, auction houses, private sales and art fairs – and the financial and social aspects involved.
2014 proved a robust year in the Contemporary Art markets with continued growth in 2015. Public auctions surpassed $2 billion for the first time, and Contemporary Art sales grew by 40 percent from 2013. Big ticket artworks selling for over $12 million more than doubled in 2014. Christie’s November 2014 Contemporary Art Auction confirmed Francis Bacon’s Three Studies of Lucian Freud as the most expensive publicly auctioned piece of art ever at $142.2 million – only to be surpassed by a Picasso on the same auction block in May 2015 selling for $179.4 million.
Caroline Taylor is an Independent Curator/Private Art Advisor and former Associate Curator of the Deutsche Bank Art Collection.
