In this episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Josh Baer, writer and publisher of The Baer Faxt, the art industry newsletter, returns to the podcast to recap last week’s Contemporary London auctions with us.  With the sales producing a cumulative total that was the second highest for London contemporary sales since June 2008, Josh shares to what extent the results aligned with the market’s expectations. Then, Josh elaborates on the impressive prices achieved by Gerhard Richter recently at auction while breaking down the artist’s market in detail. Also, he shares buyer trends from the London sales while providing his expectations for the May Contemporary sales in New York.
