In this week’s edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, Mary Lane, the Wall Street Journal’s European art reporter, recaps last week’s London Contemporary auctions with us. First, Mary shares how the market viewed the auctions and if they passed the first test of 2015. Then, she reveals to what extent the declining Euro impacted Europeans’ activities in the sales as well as if non-European bidders utilized their stronger currencies. Also, with Gerhard Richter being the winner of the week, Mary summarizes his interesting market performance over the past two decades. Lastly, Mary answers if market participants are beginning to feel fatigue over the constantly rotation door of new, emerging artists to appear on the auction block.
