The four major contemporary art evening auctions earlier this month—where the bluest of the blue chip art is sold—pulled in an astounding $1.84 billion. Art by women accounted for just $53.5 million of that, or about 2.9 percent. The above graph tells the story, underscoring the fact that while many museums and galleries are working to exhibit more work by women, work by male artists still dominates the highest echelon of the contemporary art market. (Note that Christie’s “Looking Forward to the Past” sale featured both modern and contemporary work, but has been included here.)
