Art for Sale
by Dirk Boll
Publisher's Description
How is an English auction different from a Dutch auction? What distinguishes a vintage print from a period, modern or estate print? Dirk Boll, Managing Director of Christie’s in Zurich, explains these and other technical terms, providing invaluable insights into the machinations of the art market: the increasingly symbiotic relationship between auction houses and art dealers, the strategies used by the big auction houses, recognizing and creating trends, the profiles of the various art fairs, promising new areas for collectors and the future development of the art market are just some of Art for Sale’s fascinating themes. As a doctor of law, 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. Art for Sale unpacks the art market in a knowledgeable, humorous style, and from a true insider’s perspective.
