Blue-chip art lifts the auction market to new heights


Total auction sales of Old Masters, Impressionist, Modern, Post-War and Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s, Christie’s and Phillips, ended up at $7.5 billion in 2022, up 15% from 2021. The record result was greatly aided by a number of Single owner Collections accounting for 31% of the sales total for 2022.

In this report we take a close look at the global auction market in 2022 and some of the key trends emerging across different fine art segments.

We are delighted to present ArtTactic’s The Art Market 2022 – an annual review that captures some of the key art market trends and moments over the last 12 months.
