One of the best things to happen in art market news EVer! ArtRank, which can be located at SellYouLater or ArtAnal (short for art analysis) claims to be a tool for investors who are interested in emerging artists.
The amazing thing about this site, is that the balls-out crassness of the project has left press, pundits, and, likely, a few flippers, wondering if the site’s founders are anarchists, artists, or serious service providers.
I felt giddy reading tips like this one:
|Lot 4: Lucien Smith||₤10-15k||₤12,000||sells below high, well below trend; little interest in pies #SELLNOW|
I should think that the seven day advanced reports that are available for $3,500 might be a give away… but given the current state of the art market, who the hell knows?
It’s telling that anyone has had to think twice.
