Christie’s Goes First with Monet, Matisse, Bonnard & Co.
Cutting it a little close with Impressionist and Modern previews, The New York Sun and the BBC talk about tonight’s sale at Christie’s. Everyone has the Monet pegged as selling well. But the BBC adds this interesting observation for a little bit of context:
According to findings from the Hiscox-Art Market Research, 19th-Century European art has seen a 13% rise in value since March 2007.
Art expert Charles Dupplin said: “It does seem that the art market is remaining reasonably robust, with some specific segments – such as 19th-Century European art – even undergoing a form of renaissance.”
