Publisher's Synopsis

"A comprehensive, wide-ranging and historically well-informed account." - Charles Saumarez Smith, Royal Academy of Arts It is estimated that there are over 300,000 companies involved in the world's art market, employing around 2.8 million people. But the art world carries a veneer of mystery and secrecy that many people find daunting, and the language used by market insiders can be alienating and confusing to those new to the art market. The A-Z of the International Art Market not only clarifies useful terms and definitions, but also represents a significant contribution to the fast-developing processes of transparency and democratisation in the global art business. Comprising art market terms and core concepts - both historical and contemporary - this book is a long-awaited reference source that offers a unique introduction to a dynamic business sector. The A-Z of the International Art Market provides an accessible and thorough insight into critical areas of market practice and custom that anyone involved in the art market will find useful and enlightening.
