WHY ART? /April,10/
10.03.2016 WHY ART? /April,10/ The end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st have shown a rapid growth of the art market. The demand for articles of art has been growing both among Russian and foreign purchasers. The infrastructure of the art market is widening and developing. Today the art market like the traditional financial market is very attractive as a field of profitable investment where artist is emitter; exhibitions and the legacy of the artist – emission; works of art – share holding; auctions – stock exchange, defining prices of the best works of art; and the names of famous artists with the stiff prices at the market – «blue chips».
