In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Professor Michael Moses, co-founder of Beautiful Asset Advisors and the Mei Moses Index, returns to the podcast to update us on the state of the art market as we head into autumn. First, Michael touches on the flat performance of the overall art market through the first half of the year, despite attention grabbing, trophy piece headlines throughout the media. While the overall Mei Moses Index is down for the year, Post-War & Contemporary and Asian Art, continue to perform well, up 8% on the year. Also, he details recent trends in the American Paintings and Asian Art segments, while offering insight on why he expects each of their markets to grow in the near-future. Lastly, Michael speculates why Sotheby’s share price has risen over 40% this year, while his index remains relatively flat.
