Date26th May 2017

In this week’s edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, Kelly Crow, art market reporter for the Wall Street Journal, joins us to analyze the results of last week’s major NY post-war and contemporary auctions. First, Kelly compares billionaire Yusaku Maezawa, the winner of the record setting Jean-Michel Basquiat painting that sold at Sotheby’s for $110.5 million, to other prominent art collectors. Then, she provides some perspective on where the Basquiat market is at the moment following that monumental sale. More broadly, Kelly shares some of the major takeaways from the sales according to market insiders. Lastly, she speculates if prospective sellers will have more confidence selling at auction in the near future as a result of these successful sales.
