Art Market Magazine

Edito

On 17 February 1913, the celebrated Armory show opened in New York: one of the first iconic events for art, marking America's entry into the modern era. A hundred years on, the art market is more of an economic issue than ever, with a calendar full to bursting. In March alone, you need to be in central Manhattan, New York, to celebrate the centenary of said show, then in Maastricht for the famous TETAF, which brings together top galleries from all over the world in Holland for a week. Not forgetting Paris, which will be hosting the 17th PAD, dedicated to 20th century decorative arts (after its jaunt in London), and that other key date, the Art Paris Art Fair. Along with these international get-togethers we find their inevitable corollaries: auctions. There's aplethora of them, too. In March, a hundred-odd dates are scheduled in the Paris marketplace alone, including pre-Columbian art from the famous Barbier-Mueller collection, the publisher Belfond's modern paintings, and the jewellery box of a great French family containing a Chaumet tiara. The only thing lacking, it would seem, is time!
