Description
There is, perhaps, no market commodity in the world whose value is so elusive as a work of art. The costs of production, materials, and labor have nothing to do with fixing its price. An archetypally symbolic good, a piece of art's economic worth depends upon an extraordinarily arbitrary and ephemeral array of social and cultural factors. How, then, do the many artists, collectors, dealers, and curators whose lives and livelihoods are so intimately affected by the valuation of art manage to cope with such an intangible market?
