Auctioneers Who Made Art History
Procurement analysis, sales planning, customer orientation and brand management are all part of the contemporary and rapidly changing art market, but at the centre of all this is the auctioneer. This volume examines how this one-time service provider has gradually slipped from anonymity, and into the limelight as the star of the art-world show.
The auctioneers performance is increasingly critical to the success of the auction, and with portraits of the auctioneers the books tells the story of the art auction business and details key events that played out in great cities such as New York, Berlin, Zurich, Stuttgart, Paris and Pompeii.
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.
