The market for modern art has taken a dramatic turn

“From the trophy collectors of the 1950s to the eclectic collectors of today, the market for modern art has taken a dramatic turn. ‘Postwar Art and the New York Contemporary Art Market,’ a symposium held last Friday and Saturday, explored the shift of the art market from ‘big names’ to small artists and its expansion to the international arena.

“’There’s so much in the art world — it’s an international billion-dollar market,’ artist Walter Darby Bannard said at a keynote panel Friday at the Yale University Art Gallery.”
