The uncertainties in the financial market make paintings and art into an important alternative investment and this is not necessarily handled by the classical auction houses and galleries. According to the magazine “Forbes” the art market is cooling, but online art sales are booming.
Auctioneers are in competition with dealers of original art works at every level, even in high quality art works, which are now available for sale through online galleries and online auctions. The result is that for the big auction houses sales break away worldwide, may it be Christie’s with a sales decline in the first half of the year by 27 percent, or Sotheby’s with a case of 3.1 billion to 2.4 billion dollars (Financial Times). The company’s shares have lost about a third of their value in the past year. Auctioneer Simon de Pury: “Art sold online will increase a lot over the next few years, especially if you are selling art between $10,000 and $2m – that segment of the market can be sold more effectively through the internet.” (The Guardian).
