«I LIKE MONEY ON THE WALL»


Culture Monster has seen a picture of the global art market, and it looks very much like a portobello mushroom. The glimpse came not in a photograph, painting or drawing, but from the 83-page annual “TEFAF Art Market Report” issued recently by the European Fine Art Foundation.
It found that the art business rests on a very slender stem of prized artists whose work has sprouted a vast canopy of cash, paid overwhelmingly by a coterie of 600,000 or so global millionaires who qualify as “mid- to high-level art collectors.”
The report found that 8% of the art auctioned worldwide in 2013 accounted for 82% of the money spent. In the United States, the ratio was even more skewed: 7.5% of the works auctioned raked in 91.2% of the bucks.

YOUTH IS MADE TO BE COCKY AND SHOW OFF


WARHOLIAN QUOTE OF THE DAY

«To succeed in the world it is not enough to be stupid, you must also be well-mannered.»

-Voltaire

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

Paul Morrissey, the director of most of the feature films produced by Warhol, including Flesh, Trash, and Heat, maintains that Andy was essentially untalented and dependent on his associates for all of his ideas. “Andy’s entire vocabulary consisted of ‘gee,’ ‘wow,’ and ‘oh, really.’” Paul told my parents when we visited him in Montauk after Andy had died. “Your son and Pat Hackett put all those big words in Andy’s mouth in his so- called Philosophy book that made people think he was brilliant. The only thing Andy could think to say after he met people was ‘Are they rich?’ and ‘Are they Jewish?’ ”

-Bob Colacello

WHY WALL STREET CULTURE WILL KEEP GOING

«I don't think everybody should have money. It shouldn't be for everybody-you wouldn't know who was important. How boring. Who would you gossip about? Who would you put down? »

MONEY OBSESSED

«His private diary was in the first instance a way of keeping account of his expenditure. He had a complicated relationship with money. He would keep 100 dollar bill in his boots»

-Bob Colacello.

THE BEAUTY OBSESSION

«Some people think it's easier for beauties, but actually it can work out a lot of different ways. If you're beautiful you might have a pea-brain. If you're not beautiful you might not have a pea-brain, so it depends on the pea-brain and the beauty. The size of the beauty. And the pea-brain.»

«I JUST THINK ENTERTAINMENT IS THE BEST MESSAGE»


«GOOD BUSINESS IS THE BEST ART»



En 2013, le marché de l'art a progressé de plus de 13% pour atteindre un niveau historique, la Chine conservant de justesse sa première place devant les États-Unis, vient d'annoncer Artprice, qui rendra public son rapport dans une dizaine de jours. Le produit des ventes aux enchères publiques d'œuvres d'art dans le monde (peintures, sculptures, dessins, photographies, estampes) a totalisé 12,05 milliards de dollars (hors frais) l'an dernier.
Ce rebond survient après une baisse de plus de 9% en 2012 à 10,64 milliards de dollars (chiffres révisés), essentiellement imputable à une forte contraction du marché chinois alors que les États-Unis regagnaient du terrain. Le produit des ventes en 2013 est ainsi en hausse de 2,3% par rapport à 2011, année du précédent record avec 11,78 milliards de dollars.

LA MEILLEURE PREUVE QUE LA MARCHÉ DE L'ART N'A PLUS RIEN À VOIR AVEC L'HISTOIRE DE L'ART

En 2014 ce sont les prix des oeuvres de Basquiat qui montent en flèche derrière ceux de Picasso et de
Warhol. Or, si le premier critère était celui de la place dans l'histoire de l'art, Robert Rauschenberg serait également tout au haut de la liste. En effet, qui mieux que lui incarne ce passage de l'expressionnisme abstrait à l'art Pop via ses combine paintings, cette idée de faire partie d'un mouvement tout en lui étant extérieur, métaphore parfaite de cet espace entre l'art et la vie dans lequel il se réclama toujours d'avoir voulu travailler.

«OLD MOVIES ARE THE REAL THING»


PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: THE STUPIDITY OF SELF- ESTEEM

Great people achieve things because they lack self-esteem, not because they have it.

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»



L'Américain Andy Warhol est demeuré numéro un au palmarès des enchères mondiales en 2013, juste devant Pablo Picasso, le Chinois Zhang Daqian passant à la troisième place, a annoncé mercredi la société Artprice en exclusivité à l'AFP.
L'année a été marquée "par un repositionnement" des artistes occidentaux qui avaient cédé du terrain face à certains artistes chinois, dont Zhang Daqian qui était premier en 2011, souligne le numéro un des données sur le marché de l'art.
Avec des ventes cumulées de plus de 367 millions de dollars (hors frais), Andy Warhol (1928-1987), roi du Pop art, trône en haut du podium. Son enchère maximale l'an dernier a été de 94 millions de dollars.
Le maître de l'art moderne Picasso (1881-1973), numéro trois en 2012, regagne une place, avec 361 millions de dollars de ventes cumulées.
