Josh Baer was interviewed by ArtTactic’s Adam Green about the Contemporary art market.
One question the interviewer asks is why artists like Gerhard Richter and Andy Warhol have reached higher and higher prices even though they created very large bodies of work. Baer explains the process: “A big supply makes big prices. It’s counter-intuitive, the art market.”
Baer then adds that Vermeer would never make it in today’s art market.
