This book is for art market researchers at all levels. A brief overview of the global art market and its major stakeholders precedes an analysis of the various sales venues (auction, commercial gallery, etc.). Library research skills are reviewed, and advanced methods are explored in a chapter devoted to basic market research. Because the monetary value of artwork cannot be established without reference to the aesthetic qualities and art historical significance of our subject works, two substantial chapters detail the processes involved in researching and documenting the fine and decorative arts, respectively, and provide annotated bibliographies. Methods for assigning values for art objects are explored, and sources of price data, both in print and online, are identified and described in detail. In recent years, art historical scholarship increasingly has addressed issues related to the history of art and its markets: a chapter on resources for the historian of the art market offers a wide range of sources. Finally, provenance and art law are discussed, with particular reference to their relevance to dealers, collectors, artists and other art market stakeholders.

A century after its genesis, one of the most successful collaborations in the history of art is celebrated through stunning reproductions, historic photographs, and informative essays. The birth of the Vienna Secession was brought about by collaboration among numerous painters, sculptors, and architects, including Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffmann. For more than twenty years these pioneering figures mutually influenced each other as they created lasting monuments to the principles of artistic freedom. Published in conjuction with an exhibition commemorating the centennial of one of the pair's greatest accomplishments-the Stoclet Palace in Brussels-this book centers on the collaboration as a means of exploring the modernist movement at the turn of the century. Essays on Hoffmann's designs for the 1900 Paris World's Fair; the creation of the iconic Ver Sacrum building; the 1909 Internationale Kunstschau exhibition; and the history of the Stoclet Palace trace the rise of one of Europe's most fertile artistic eras. Readers will also learn about the role played by other prominent artists such as George Minne, Fernand Khnopff, Jan Toorop, and Frank Brangwyn as they explore the interplay of ideas that marked this important moment in western art.
