art market article

Here's a link to an Art Newspaper article on the art market. Thanks Todd Gibson for the link and pulling the good quotes. Below is a quote from some sleazy dealer -

"If you make the business transparent it would collapse overnight. I have to have the option to lie to collectors about what’s available or quote them prices 10 times what other people paid. Entire careers are built upon fabrications, like about which shows sold out and at what prices"
