Art Basel Miami Beach 2014 Market price check

Price Check: Art Basel Miami Beach

Van de Weghe's Basquiat

Van de Weghe’s Basquiat.

At art fairs, the ARTnews team checks in from time to time with dealers at certain booths to hear about any sales they’ve made. These disclosures are collected in a completely non-scientific fashion and based mainly on which booths have a director or owner who is free, at that moment, to discuss numbers, or whatever they want to discuss. They are in vaguely geographical order, though sometimes they come via email (which accounts for some of the formatting quirks). Sometimes the price comes without any other details on the piece. Sometimes the dealer may not want to discuss price at all. These numbers can’t really be verified, but that isn’t to say you shouldn’t believe them.
