Description:

The 2002-2003 auction year was the most outstanding and successful year on record for Canadian art, posting an amazing $32.6 million in sales! Indeed, it was an astonishing 18% more successful than the record-setting year previous - and this with only one million dollar painting sold. The 2002-2003 season established a new plateau for Canadian art against which, it is felt, future sales will be measured for many years to come. The new record high annual turnover meant the seventh consecutive annual gain for the Canadian art market - although surprisingly, the WPL Composite Canadian Art Index posted its first decline in seven years.

The reason for the decline in the WPL Composite Index becomes clear when one examines the prices throughout this year's book - the lower and mid range of the Canadian market (that area of the market that does not comprise the more established names that contribute to the sixteen individual WPL Art Indices) performed extremely strongly. So strong, in fact, that the average price for a Canadian painting sold at auction climbed a phenomenal 35% and now sits at $6,882!

After an historic fall season in 2002 that set a record for a single season's total, the 2003 spring season was not far behind. Prices in general were up, and works for the more established artists climbed significantly as buyers with a seemingly insatiable appetite, and unlimited budget, vied for quality and rarity. The contemporary market in particular produced some very strong results, but these, for the most part, paled against the continuing strength of the established blue-chip painters. However, it was the unsung heroes in the lower sectors of the market that really stole the day.

No matter how you view it, it was an historic year - and you will find it all in the 2004 edition of the Canadian Art Sales Index, Canada's principal resource guide for Canadian art prices. Now into its 24th year the Index brings you all the prices, from $100 up, in salerooms from Saint John to Victoria, New York to London.

In this year's book - the 2004 edition - you'll discover:

  • Over 5050 new auction prices - including several significant artists' records
  • Over $32.5 million in Canadian art sales
  • Works by more than 1290 Canadian artists and authors
  • Results from 29 salerooms and 80 auctions
  • A revised Top 100 paintings list and Top 100 artists' records
  • A complete market overview for the past year as seen through the nation's leading market indicator, the WPL Composite Canadian Art Index
  • And much more of interest and value to you as a collector/investor of Canadian art!

The 2004 edition of the Index has the prices that set the benchmark for a new era in Canadian art. It's definitely one edition you'll not want to miss.
